The e-commerce.

finding a merchant account


Recommended Posts


I am UK Based and discovered oscommerce 3 years ago. I setup an online store for my wifes business using it. www.debbies-delights.co.uk


To be able to accept credit/debit card payments, I have been using Paypal which I have been very pleased with and had no problems with what so ever....... Untill Now.


I received an email from PayPal saying I could no longer use paypal (after 3 years use) to accept payments on my site as we sell "Adult Related Producs" and I was in Breach of Terms.

Unfortunatly, this is something I did not see when signing up to PayPal (totaly my fault)


So now I have a problem of finding a Merchant Account/Payment Gateway to be able to accept credit/debit card payments.


I have spent a lot of time searching the internet but all the ones I have tried either do not accept UK accounts, Selling Adult Products or both.


Can anyone please Let me know of a Reasonably Priced e-commerce account that could possibly be the right one for my requirements.


I am sure I am not the only on with, or had, the same problem.

Any help would be very much appreciated

Hi dave528,


It doesn't seem like the forum is to active with replies at times.


REgarinding your question - i'm not sure if the UK is similar to South Africa/USA (where i'm most familiar with this - for what its worth :-" ) But if you have a credit card account with a bank - see if they cannot supply you with a merhant account. Or try people like "World Pay" www.worldpay.com/


Another bet would be to knock on the door of people in the same industry - they may know of providers who specifically work alongside your industry.


I hope this helps.


All the best.
