Hi the setup fee they quoted me was 450euros. Yes of course I would rather not pay this. However many other processors do not support my products or cannot provide the credit card coverage that I need which is ones specific to the UK. I would though because of the fees etc, be interested to know if they are legit or not. Basically do they pay out ok? If anybody is using them I would be interested to know.
Hi, thanks. Yes we sell cigarettes and companies dont like tobacco so there is the problem. I have not looked at psbill before but notice their 3rd party processing starts at 8% which is higher than what i have been quoted already. Also I am interested in UK specific cards such as Maestro which I dont think they will do. I am open to suggestions and will give them a closer look. I would still like to know of anyone who has knowlege of ecs-world.
I know a little about ECS. They are based in UK and deal mainly with high risk merchants (adult, gambling, etc.). From what I can tell, the setup fee and rate they charge is quite reasonable when compared to others that deal in those high risk categories.
I dont' remember the details, but I am pretty sure that they had a lot of problems. A search on these forums should confirm, if they are the ones that I am thinking of ---- if so (and from what I remember), I think that you may want to steer clear.
If you want the best advice, DONT EVER TRY THEM, THEY HAVE AN SCAM GOING ON. ECS UK (Ecommerce UK /Scanorder) they have failed to pay our company the settlements of the past 5 months. They are broke and they are stealing our money. Please find below a list of excuses they use to refuse pay our money, the money we worked and earned.
From Joanna Fiminska, (Accountant)
"I will let you know when we get the funds"
From the our question about a payment update:
"I was told that we are supposed to get the funds by monday"
From the question about the pending payments:
"Scand Order has not yet paid the monies for the Apr 1 - 10 or Apr 11 - 21 settlements so I can not confirm that these payments will be on time. "
We requested another update:
"You know that I will let you know as soon as we recive the funds.
Nothing has beed recieved so far"
Jodi Ladakakos from the finance department, proposed a payment schedule because they do not have funds to face their responsabilities and of course they faulted to the promise, their word is meaningless.
They robbed us, do not engage yourself in to this situation.
ECS-World are still linked to the Latvian account. The domain lies in .lv zone, NOT .lt – which is a totally different country (Lithuania). Go to http://www.ecs-world.com/admin.asp and enter any user name and password, like ecs/sux . Of course the passwords are made up, but look what happens - your redirected to the cps.lv gateway - Latvian based company. Unlike ECS-world, I know this guys personally, they are quite OK and never give empty promises, but as far as I am concerned they mostly deal with simple ecommerce. My knowledge can be out of date, last time I spoke with them was 4 months ago.
