As I previously said in a thread I have just signed up for a new account with www.adjkdesign.com. I think I am going to pick up their pay per plan solution.
Now, I wanted to know from you guys, what is the best way to accept VISA , etc online ?
I mean, I am COMPLETELY new in the business, I have seen that almost every merchant account solutions require a VISA card to signup , however I do not have one yet and I have no way o get one because I am simply a web designer , and this is my hobby, just want to give my clients the opportunity to get hosted at the same place....
Is there any merchant account that I can sign up only with my account number or something ? I do not care if there are setup fees
The reason why a credit card is required is because the payment gateway wants to protect itself. (e.g. you accepted payment but do not deliver service/product, the payment gateway will suffer a chargeback). That's why a credit history is required.
You may want to ask friends of your to see if they can accept credit card payment for you. (it isn't perfect, but if you don't want to search longer, this is the best way).

I know that maestro card will be now accepted online, maybe when it gets accepted i can singup.
I will continue the search, I do not like to ask favors to others, also you get dependent on them, that is not good.
Thanks a lot
Actually, normal Maestro cards are not accepted on-line and won't ever be. In order to pay by using your Maestro card on the Internet you need to get a special online Maestro card which is basically virtually unavailable at the moment because hardly any banks know about that card type.
If you ask the 3rd party processor of your choice (be it 2checkout or whoever) about an alternative payment option I'm quite sure that you can pay by check at most places as well. It's probably worth asking
