    Most used credit cards?

    I was considering using ProPay as my billing processor (in the near term anyways). The only problem I have is they only accept Visa and Master Card. My question to you is: What percentage of your customer suse something other than Visa or Mastercard?

    we have a couple of AMEX and Discover cards, but yes, an extremely large percent are Mastercard and Visa.

    We mostly get Visa and Mastercard as well, but after the sign up we offer a 5% discount for Amex. Amex is deposited quicker and the withheld percentage is not nearly as high as MC and Visa with our merchant account.

    More of my business-type clients use Amex, whereas the Visa/MC are more residential type users. I would never want to abandon Amex support, that is where most of my financial resources come from. But to answer your question, only about 5% of our customers use something other than Visa or Mastercard.

    I get more people wanting to pay by check than by anything other than Visa/MC.

    also don't forget PayPal - it's a popular option.

    With the way that PayPal has treated hosting companies I don't think they can be considered a good option anymore. It just doesn't seem wise at this time.

    I only use PayPal for people who don't have credit cards. hostcharge.com is much better.
