    The cheapest I have seen for a real offshore account is around $900 usd but maybe there are some other options, maybe digging locally in countries like Panama or Belize I guess..
    Prices also depend on on what kind of use are you trying give to your account a bank account is maybe is not exactly what you really need according to your business, amounts, activity, etc
    Remember that offshore also does not necessarily means no regulations or legal responsibility for the origin of the funds you move to and from your accounts etc.

    Wish you success..

    You can not buy merchant account...

    merchant account is linked to a bank account... to get that u required a bank account ...
    some companies get higher fee and use their own bank account and provide u just merchant... their rate is usually high, specially when its offshore...

    by the way getting a merchant account may takes up to 6 month, thats not a fast process, and getting one of them is quite hard, u need to provide lots of doc to them... you need 3 months active bank statements that shows lots of transaction and payment has come and go through it, they rarely give merchant to starts up... ur business charge back rate should be very low... in other words getting the merchant account is so hard

    Merchant account doesnt take 6 months. Most of the time its 2-3 days or so. Offhsore accounts can take about 1 week. Uhm I got one direct with the bank now. Had a good friend who showed me how to do it. Basically I got a regular merchant account in usa and build up my rep, then went offshore with a awesome rate since i had rep build up, then I had a agent go direct with he bank cutting out the middle man.

    choose wisely there is alot of offshore accounts but most are shady and will take your money and start slow and build up your transactions over time

    Probably a good ideal is to get like 3 offshore accounts and rotate them

    Hello,

    FYI to all those who are looking to get merchant accounts (offshore/domestic), like the post above it is not that challenging to get a merchant account. However, it does matter depending on what your offer is. Depending if your offer is high risk or not and how you bill your client.

    Can you please post the link to the website?

    Normally offshore Merchant accounts must be attached to a offshore bank.
    Cheapest rates I have seen are around 1,100 USD
