    I woke up this morning to this:

    So after a month of bullshitting, they've finally told me they don't want to do business with me.

    Do you guys know any good alternatives to 2CO?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Take a look at Wepay, it will process Visa/MC and bank payments, making it just about as useful as Paypal for most of the consumer population, without the PP hassles.

    Thanks. I heard about Aangate but they pay on net 30 basis which is way too long a period to get the funds on my card / bank.
    Plimus don't accept Paypal unless the seller has his paypa attached with their account - not possible for me as Paypal is not available where I live.

    Their reviews look scary man. Almost everyone is calling them out for either bad customer support or bad experience overall.
    Take a look at this, this and this.

    Authorize.Net is a good alternative but not sure if they do business with individuals. You may have to submit company papers to get approved there. I use 2CO too. They bullshitted me about potential high risk business and hook me up with their highest fee tier. 7.5%+$0.45 transaction fee + Monthly fee.

    Same. But the said thing is, even after agreeing to their terms of 7.5% fee per transaction, they rejected me yesterday.
    And what pissed me off even more is that they "can't disclose the reason for rejection". WTF.

    They do.
    You might have to upload scanned copies of your driver's license, utility bill etc.

    If you're outside US, they will ask for W8 form if the volume is more than the norm.

    Okay, Wepay has some bad reviews (although one critic, Sara Reyes, shows up on two of the three links provided). It's still only .1% OF THE COMPLAINTS I HEAR ABOUT PP, every year. I haven't seen a problem with it since trying it, and if we provided enough feedback about the site it might revise it's ways. Give it time to improve itself, and it will eventually race past PP.

    What volume of transactions were you processing?

    They seem to be more stable than Paypal, in terms of closing accounts.

    I had had that account for ~8 months now and was doing 1000-5000 a month back in the day - then they limited my account because the website associated with that expired. I got the domain back, built a site and made sure the site complied to their TOS.
    Then I went ahead and asked them to reinstate my account... no response in a week and then that dreaded email telling me about closing of my account.

    Couldn't come at a worse time, really.

    2Co is damn strict in their policies .

    First they will take long period and will ask tons of B.S questions .

    And once they approve your account they will limit your account with even a smaller mistakes

    My account got limited 2 times and my goodness they opened it after 3 weeks discussions .

    I think 2 Co is best for you , try getting them again , also talk with them on phone call .

    Talked to Brian - talked to him quite a few times and he assured me I'll get my account back in 2 days (that was a month ago lol)

    Then called him almost on daily basis and he's either out of the office or at lunch or in a meeting :/

    This morning I get that email - game over.

    Will call him up on Monday but I'm sure he won't be able to do anything.. last time he couldn't even tell me the reason for limiting my account even though I asked for 3 times.

    Only been using Wepay since the middle of this past year, but was satisfied enough that my local club has adopted using it as a processor for online fundraising purposes, instead of Paypal.

    Sorry for bringing up this one week old thread... I haven't tried Google Checkout but from what I've read, it looks like the customers have to signup for an account to be able to pay using Google Checkout.
