I used IranianVisa.com. They worked out for me... eventually, after months of delay's and runarounds. Consider them only if you don't like the service of other agencies that come more highly recommended. I paid in advance before leaving Canada, but I can't remember how.

I used IranianVisa and had no problems at all a few months ago (I'm a UK citizen BTW). I paid around 30Euro online and got my approval number emailed to me after maybe 3 weeks which was fine as I was doing the KKH. I had to set up this funny money transfer account which worked fine once you set it up. I then picked up my visa for Iran in Quetta only 24hours after submitting my application at the consulate. I think it was upwards of £90 or so at the consulate (can't remember what it was in Pakistan money). They're certainly not cheap these visas, are they?!

And don't get me started about the Pakistan visa, bloody $70 for a 4 line letter from the UK consulate basically saying 'um, yeah, he can apply for a visa' and then about the same cost again for the actual visa!!
