    can anyone recommend a private payment gateway / merchant account processing company. I am starting an online business, where I am trying to protect my identity from angry customers being able to find out who I am through who ever I choose to process my transactions. Ideally the merchant account would be able to connect to a bank account in the US.

    My site is 100% legal, but I require privacy from my customers.

    Thought I would add too , if anyone ever disputes payment with my business I am confident to 100% return it... I am not looking for a scammer company , just someone who respects my privacy

    What's wrong with PayPal?

    Avoiding 'angry customers' is never a good idea.. it's far easier and cheaper to deal with a customer problem than it is to hide from one. Like BHS VPS did to me - they treated me REALLY badly, and now whenever someone asks about them, I say "stay away, they suck" because that was truly my experience, and I'm sure dozens of would-be customers have stayed away.

    You can easily go for Paypal business account.
    When you register Paypal Business account and when someone pays you, payment goes to your business name so basically costumer will see only your business name as recipient.

    When you are registering for Paypal Business Account, they will ask you to enter your Business name, business address and costumer service phone number, just think of something, like "Seo Digital LTD" and find some existing address form Yellow Pages, same goes for phone number(you can leave your real number if you like, if not leave fake one) that's it. Costumer only will see this info after payment is made.

    But remember, your home address and home phone number has to be the real ones(for paypal verification purposes), but in no way that costumer will be able to see this info.

    Are you expecting your customers to be angry with you by default?

    You can use Neteller Business account as payment gate way. You dont need any bank account they will provide a master card & you can with draw money instantly from ATM booth.
