    They have been in business for many years and provide some good support towards their merchants.

    Many involved in high risk business are using them.

    Chronopay based on Holland are not the worst in the business for high risk but there has been some controversy because they started in their business to sell for allofmp3.com and there was some theft of credit card numbers and spamming by that company (although E-centru in Moldova were suspected more than Chrono).

    (ChronoPay did close down allofmp3's merchant account when these problems came up in April 2007 and used the excuse to only accept Russian music stores with NP FAIR licenses. Which of course meant the switch to mp3sparks.com was ok to them. NPFAIR is of course also controversial with the copyright holders of the music sold through such sites.)

    StandardPay is Chrono's high risk affilliate based in Spain for adult and similiar very high risk merchant categories.

    Further they should really be more careful about shutting down businesses such as the fake anti-spyware unless they want to be thought of as actual true business partner of the scammers:

    There are similar accusations against Chrono as GSPAY owners as they share a common history - GSPAY being well known for counterfeit software, replica rip-off goods, etc.

    A friend of mine used chronopay for processing and he has got a VERY negative experience. Chronopay holded funds for no reason and no explanation. Chronopay is a russian company (one of the owners of popular 'black market' forum crutop.nu) just having its 'official' office in Holland. If you google you can find more info and scam reports.

    Smile Their boss is just under fire

    ChronoPay is a leader in Russian e-commerce market when it comes to card payments, they are used literally by hundreds of Russian corporations, tens of airlines and telecom companies including state largest companies and government companies as well. Buy an e-ticket in Russia, most likely You will use ChronoPay (10 or 15 airlines use them as a processor), pay for Your cell phone, 1 chance from 3 You will be paying through ChronoPay (MTS, the largest of top 3 cell operators in Russia is their client), pay for Your internet in Moscow (YOTA Moscows most popular internet provider these days), it will be done through ChronoPay.

    Unfortunately same can not be said about their EU presence, where mostly they are known as a semi-high risk processor.

    Because of their severe involvement in Russian E-commerce they are sometimes under fire for the stuff they do if they cross someones interests. Their boss has been acting as an active spam-fighter and heads anti-spam comettee in the ministry of telecom. Spammers based out of Russia paid a bribe to a Russian politician and Brian Krebs (former Washington Post reporter) to do some false claims and thats the whole story. Nothing interesting. Usuall stuff which happens to someone who is actually doing something.
