    Merchent to accept cards

    Hey,

    I think it's time we accepted cards as well as paypal.

    The problem is we are from the UK, and can't find a merchant that allows us.

    We operate in $.

    2Checkout isn't helping at all.

    What else is out there?

    We use 2Checkout and they've worked great for us over the past few years. Does 2Checkout not service sellers based outside of the USA?

    Yes it does. And some of our no USA customers use that.
    Sohan, I think that you have to reconsider 2CO. They are as good as expensive.

    It's cheaper to go directly to a bank and use protx.

    Why not try protx then? or perhaps they were one of them that did not allow you? pay pal also have a merchant account/gateway solution you can have a look at
    www.cyberbit.com - merchant account and gateway provider

    Because Protx charge 10p a transaction, on top of all my banks costs.

    It just makes things VERY pricey.

    With worldpay if you get your merchant account with them and processing your just paying the 3.5% on american cards. Which is the same rate most banks will give a uk business on american cards.

    There is a setup charge but they are actually cheaper than bank + protx. As your paying the percentage to the bank and the 10p you mentioned.

    I hope you find a solution.

    and 2Checkout's 5.5% plus $0.49 per transaction isn't?

    I'd take a merchant account and a gateway over a third party facility like 2Checkout or Paypal as the fees on the latter will become significant once you get larger.

    The last time I checked we paid something like 0.86% MSF plus US$0.13c per transaction on credit cards (AMEX is higher at 2.2%) - that's a lot cheaper than 5.5% and $0.49.

    Talk to your bank. They're really not that scary and will do what they can to get your business.
