Looking for a high risk payment processor (merchant account)?

Question by wicked_redhead3: Looking for a high risk payment processor (merchant account)?
I’m going to try and ask this question one last time. I am looking for a payment processor for a adult dating site. I have searched for weeks for one in the US and so far none that accept this type of business so I am now looking for payment processing companies in other countries. Please do not respond is you are doing a quick search and post a few names that show up. I have already done that. I am wanting to hear from people that use a company and can suggest a company that they use or have used with having no problems with them.

Best answer:

Answer by Robert
The only one that I know of is charge.com I have been recently looking for a high risk merchant payment gateway as well (though not for adult related industry) and aside from some offshore places, they were the only one that would take me on. I ended up forming another company that has absolutly nothing to do with my business and getting a merchant account for that company. Since my original company owns 51% of the new company, it is legal for me to use it to pull my payments.

Hope this helps.

What is the best alternative for a high risk merchant account’s personal guarantee?

Question by Jake G: What is the best alternative for a high risk merchant account’s personal guarantee?

Best answer:

Answer by Marie C
There are several alternatives but confidence from your high risk merchant account provider usually comes from your ability to be able to pay them once you owe them money. The letter of credit acts as guarantee that you will be able to pay your provider in the form of loan from your own bank. The letter of credit will only be used only under the conditions written in it.
