Travelers to the US on visa waiver programme - Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA)

Travelers from countries that are on the US visa waiver programme need to submit applications via ESTA for prior approval. An online search will throw up many websites apparently offering this service for a tidy fee. At worst, some are con jobs. At best some provide an actual flow-through application service with little value add.

Seems the official US government website is at: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/.  One can certainly save a couple of dollars by applying online directly instead.  Self help?
