    USA Based - Need a Merchant Account to Accept UK/European Payments

    Are there any Merchant Accounts that accept USA based businesses and allow the to process Credit/Debit Cards from UK-European customers?

    General Ecommerce
    NOT high risk
    About 6 Months of Processing so far 0% Chargebacks

    Need to process about 50%-70% International(Mostly from the UK)

    Any info would be great

    There are two ways to go about it... you can get a merchant account through a US based acquirer, or set up an EU subsidiary corporation and then set up a European merchant account that would be set up to settle transactions back to your US business. What kind of sales volume per month are you currently processing?

    Paypal Business or Paypal Pro would be a good choice for handling international currencies.

    An alternative (from personal experience), is to have a UK based agent on comission who would accept payments on your behalf, and then remit them to yourself in a timely fashion.

    3rd Parties are out of the question as a definite solution. I tried using Amazonpayments, google checkout and paypal alone and went from 20 sales per month to 3 sales per month. 2Checkout, simply said they wouldn't accept me, I have no idea why.

    I am Registered in the UK as an LTD, but would like to have payments sent to a US bank and hopefully documents (statements,welcome kits, ToS') sent to a USA address.

    Are there any merchant accounts out there that will process?
