Need ideas for new subscription processing

Hi, I am currently using the shopping cart (and email marketing) of Infusionsoft together with Authorize.net merchant services, both of which I want to replace with something less expensive.
Current scenario: I have three long term clients, who are automatically charged on their credit card. Infusionsoft manages this, including emails to notify them when their credit card is almost expired or has expired. The current setup is in Wordpress that links to Infusionsoft's shopping cart, but I don't have reason for anyone new to sign up this way. I just have to handle my 3 clients somehow. I did set up Stripe, but I don't know anything about it. I'm not sure if it can handle charging clients every month.
So the requirement is for monthly billing from their credit cards and automated emails regarding their credit card expirations or non-payment.
Do you have any recommendations for a less expensive setup? (edit)

      fasteasysuccess,
      Thanks so much for your input. I also heard about Braintree.

      At this point, I'm looking at Stripe or Braintree subscriptions and single purchase. I appreciate any thoughts about either of these.

    The biggest and best in my opinion is Paypal. The simplest out there and you do not need a website to use it. You are only handling 3 clients so no need to overcomplicate this

      Thank you for weighing in. My need is automated subscription billing that automatically charges the client without them needing to do anything once approved. Then also to send emails to warn them of their credit card date getting close to being old, and emails if the billing doesn't work. I know that with PayPal Invoicing, I can set an automatic invoice, but the client needs to approve it each time. I can pay $30/month for PayPalPro (formerly PayFlow Pro), but I'm trying to reduce my costs.

      That said, if I'm incorrect or haven't thought of something, I'm very open to input.
      Thanks!
