    I don't want to use PayPal to accept payments from my customers because PayPal can be a bitch anytime it wants and limit my account. So what is the other best option I can use? I don't mean other payment processors like Moneybookers, Alertpay etc. It's a fact that almost everyone will want to pay through PayPal..

    How about Plimus? What does Plimus do exactly; receive payments on my behalf and then send me an accumulated amount? Or anything else you would suggest?

    And oh yeah if this information is useful, most of my clients (about 95%) are and will be from US.

    Open an 2checkout account. Buyers can pay paypal via 2checkout too.. one side you are not afraid of limiting your paypal account anymore.. other side you still offering it :)

    PLimus is a good provider. You still need a paypal account to accept paypal payments with them however. 2CO seems to be a popular choice and I'm sure you can get coupons so you don't have to pay the membership fee.

    2checkout
    Moneybookers
    Google
    Western Union
    Plimus

    Though I have not used any of that yet on its full potential I have accounts in most of them. Some captcha service required me to have a Plimus account and some dating sites only offer on 2checkout.

    2CO is a good option but do read about their fees before using them!

    well worth looking at this service where you pay a measly 1% of transaction value UPTO a maximum of £2 (approx $3.00). disclosure: cant say ive used it yet, but am intending to: GoCardless.com
