    i am looking to accept credit card payments for the services i provide as most of my clients do not have paypal.

    I checked out 2co, but reviews seem that they decline the genuine payments as well.

    Any idea, clue would be appreciated.

    Use Paypal. If you have a business account, you can accept CC's. It's free, except you pay when you use it. It's like 50 cents + 2.9%.

    I would ask what type of service/product are you selling. Based on that is whether or not you should sell directly from paypal.
    personally If you have a solid website selling stuff then get WHMCS.

    otherwise you can try pilmus, avangate, 2checkout.. there are tons. E-junkie has a pretty cheap program for selling - just $5 a month and no % of sales for up to 10 digital products.

    If you have a iPhone/Android there are plenty of ways to do so, the most popular at the moment is. Squareup.com they provide a free credit card reader too, the only downside they charge fees. They are simply: 2.75% if you use the reader and 3.5% + 15ยข if you type in the card information manually.

    Hopefully that helps you!

    You need something like a merchant account:

    Code:
    http://www.merchantexpress.com/
    I haven't used the one above I have mentioned, but you are looking for "merchant accounts".
