I have a merchant account (VISA/Mastercard). What sites allow sellers to offer these credit cards? I'm trying to get away from PayPal. I do offer Google Checkout on eCrater and BluJay, but would like also to offer my own credit cards. Thanks for any help. Katinka

AuctionCheckout is a nice option for a merchant account. However, Ebay closed my account when I changed from PayPal to AuctionCheckout. I wrote several emails, called 5 times to them, but anyone gave me any explanation.
However, it was clear for me: PayPal is an Ebay's company !!!! I had 100% positive feedback, but they did it !

that doesnt even make sense. I have used it for several years. Hun you got shut down for something else.

What you cant do is trash paypal. Just offer an alternative. They are a little sensitive to being criticised. If you did that, it woudnt surprise me

No Wendy. Believe or not : I had 100% of positive feedbacks and any problem about communication, descryption, shipping and time to deliver. I was not selling anything wrong.
Ebay closed my account 2 hours after I inserted my AuctionChekout merchant account and pull out the Paypal option. :(
I have a reliable company and make many business with duty free shops and cruise lines worldwide. This account was the e-commerce way for my company.
I do not have any problem with AuctionCheckout and I remained my personal account there. The treatment from them is excellent and they are a good company, different from Ebay.
Ebay did not give me any explanation about the closing of my account. The single thing: I did not accept PayPal anymore.
I have a serious and honest business. Ebay IS NOT serious and honest ! :x
Now, me and my partner are trying another ways from our e-commerce department. Amazon is calling to us every week to open a store there, but we do not make a decision yet about them.
If you have any idea to us, I will thank you so much.
Kindest regards,

Wendyful, I have been with Propay for 4 years. Nothing at all to be leary about. Fine Company, no problems at all. Nice to have them as an alternative to Paypal.

I accept paypal, but sometimes I run across folks that don't want to use paypal, so I always have my merchant acct. with propay. I only accept online pymts, so these two methods work for me.

Hey guys really nice thread. The high risk merchant account provider has a lot to take into deliberation. We will easily open this merchant account on any foreign city because there services are very fast and good.

Hi Katinka, apologies for not replying sooner. Given you are Yorkshire based, have you considered Nochex in Leeds?

I work for the company so I need to declare my interest.

Kind regards,

I currently use Moneris. Had a few bugs in the beginning. But it works really well for me now.

No need to be leery of ProPay. ProPay is owned by Wells Fargo (4th largest US bank) and their discount rate is the same now as PayPal/Google (used to be higher). Only thing is they still 'steal' 30 or 35 cents from you each time you make a withdrawal. Other than that they are excellent. You can even use a telephone to process a transaction.

An industry term for a business banking relationship whereby you and a bank have arranged to accept credit card payments (usually, a local bank can suffice for this kind of relationship). Setting up a merchant account usually involves the bank understanding your business and working with a third-party processor to arrange a mechanism for accepting payments. Merchant accounts are usually required for accepting customer credit card and electronic payments through an electronic commerce Web site.
