    Just be really careful with them, there are much better payment processors. I had about $1500 in pending payments refunded and my account closed. I was selling various services.

    It doesn't seem worth it unless your selling physical items. And the fact there are much better alternatives out there.

    So a big middle finger to the 8 ton gorilla, Google F U!

    I use ejunkie and you can add 2checkout or authorize.net which are much better because if you do have any problems you can give them a call.

    I didn't have any disputes they said I violated their terms but of course don't specify or return emails. And I was selling seo and other social media type services.

    I agree 100% authorize.net as a gateway and a merchant processor is the best solution overall, but also try plimus...cause they paid out with me and my team no issues at all even though they hold the funds but they do pay i can say that.
