Are you looking for a third party processor or your own merchant account?

There are quite a few. Actually I would suggest Paypal in conjunction with a processor. worldpay is one - some have had some problems with them, but it could be a good start

Worldpay was not working at all overnight UK time. Don;t know what the problem was but we only took $30 on paypal overnight.
WP does tend to go like this occasionally which is why we are moving toa different integration method that bypasses their payment pages (only available to companies with a large turnover).

I would seriously suggest using paypal to start with as their system now does not require a two stage process and its very cheap compared to a UK merchant account plus processing.

You will need your own Merchant Account for Protx.

You need your own merchant account for Worldpay as well.
Its just that if you don't have one they will apply for one for you.
They call this World direct but it is not third party processing

Worldpay offers third party processing and you do NOT need your own merchant account if you donīt want.

No they do not!
No tin the Uk anyway.
maybe they do in the US.

In the UK if you apply for a worldpay account and you donot have a merchant account they forward your application to Natwest Streamline and you are issued with a proper Visa/Mastercard merchant ID.

This is how it works.
They are not keen for you to know that thats how they have done it, but that is how they do it.
If you apply for other merchant accounts you will soon find out you already have a merchant ID.

Trust me, i'm a web host.

Thanks for the info, I didn't know this, thought they provided everything and was 3rd party like how 2checkout does it, I was considering using worldpay in the future but this has put worldpay in the "may be" pile.

what's the implication of this? Does it mean that you end up with a merchant account without paying the Ģ25 a month? or is a merchant ID not much use if you transfer to another system?
