    2checkout is enough for accepting CC?+will it deny not legally registered business?

    Hi there,
    Im looking for a solution for payments to start my hosting company.
    I have whmcs license and wondering if 2checkout will take care of all payment relaeted transcations !

    what i want to know is if i signup with 2checkout and integrate it with whmcs i am ready to accept credit cards ?

    One more question is i have not registered my hosting business in my count and 2checkout is asking for busines names, if i give my hosting company name which i didnt legally registered will they deny the application ?
    I want to know this as they mention a non refundble $49 fee.


    Please advice.
    Thank you.

    Yes, with 2Checkout you will be able to accept credit cards.

    They will not deny your application but one day they may randomly ask for your company registration documents and limit your account. Be safe and register your company to avoid such situations.

    Yes. If you want to start a webhosting business, do it properly. Spend some money registering your company, making it legal. Do all the correct things to operate legally.

    The money you have spent will then motivate you to run your business properly. You should have registered your business BEFORE looking at payment processors and getting a WHMCS license.

    Treat it like a business, and you will succeed.

    Treat it any other way, and there is nothing seperating you and many other fly-by-night operations thinking they can make a quick buck and then disappearing when problems happen.

    You will get more clients too if you make it legal.

    Maybe... Unfortunately, I don't think most hosting consumers bother themselves to check state business registration documents before signing up at a host.

    And in a lot of cases you dont need to register a business. Unless of course you want to do an LLC or Corp, but even my attorney suggested I wait b4 I do that. In a big city -- you will more than likely have to register so they can get your money, but a
    lot of areas small businesses wont need it.

    Its always best to register your business first. Then study about getting the clients. You don't want to be in a situation where things are going good then there is a daily on your part and someone aura you for all you gave down to your underwear!!! Lol. A legally registered private llimited company can save you from all that drama. Trust me on this.
