    Merchant Account

    Please advise which companies offer international merchant accounts. I need a complete solution for e-business. Thank you for your replies.

    Um, 2CheckOut.com might be good...

    Also do an affiliate program. Chris has a site that could promote you and I will soon.

    worldpay, not really a merchant account, but I don't know of any true merchant account providers that cater to non-US businesses.

    You might want to go to authorize.net and browse through their resellers.

    Yeah. Worldpay's pretty good. I've done some work with worldpay in the past.

    If you want a complete merchant account, then you can get one from Barclays bank if you're in the UK.

    What about?...

    What about using http://www.ez-charge.com? These guys offer a full offshore merchant account with payment gateway facilities and sophisticated fraud-detection system.

    Worldpay and Barclays offer internet merchant accounts for non-US customers.

    Both systems are very similar but of the two I'd say Barclays ePDQ is better as it offers a more sophisticated order tracking system you can manage from your own site.

    I recommend you to use ikobo.com . It offers merchant accounts, shopping cart facility and credit card processing facility. Its merchant account has no setup fee, and its transaction fees are lower than other companies. Its coverage is in more than 170 contries and 220 regions. When you will use it you will enjoy the pleasure of it for the speedex of your online business.

    I second that. Ikobo is a company to avoid.

    My affiliation with ikobo is of a satisfied customer. Their services have satisfied my online money transfer needs and also my online business needs. Earlier than that i used paypol and wanted a better solution, which i got later on.

    I'm not after a merchant account, if I were, I'd use WorldPay or Barclays (if I had a business account). But just out of interest, what are the problems people have had with ikobo.com?

    The only people I've ever seen giving a good review of Ikobo were obviously paid by Ikobo to do it, like Ice. I have personally removed dozens of posts here and at Sitepoint that are obviously by paid employees of Ikobo. I would never trust my money to a company that has to resort to that kind of marketing.

    You can notice the spam posts because all the posters are from countries like China or Pakistan. They all speak in broken English. They all have low post counts, and only post about how great Ikobo is. They often carry on conversations with each other.
