    Hi Everybody!!

    I wanna set up a website to offer a service both free and paid, but I want total privacy, I don't want to associate my name with the service (it's nothing illegal, just privacy!).

    So how to receive money online in this case? What is the most private payment processing company in the world? I don't want to use PayPal, Amazon Payments, Google Checkout, etc. because these companies ask everything (including ID), so what is(are) the best alternative(s)?

    If I had to provide these data no matter what, I'd like to at least use a company with a good privacy policy and preferably who's outside of the USA.

    I want to remain "anonymous", "invisible" at least while I don't make some good money, then I can officially set up a company, find partners and find a way to keep my privacy while doing the business.

    As you can imagine, I'm a noob at the issue, but I got a good idea which will make some money, so I'm asking your advice. Please feel free to ask whatever you want and I can provide more information/details.

    Thanks!

    Your best option is to do a joint venture with someone that does not share your privacy concerns. It will be extremely difficult otherwise. The other option is to make it difficult to find you identity. Private domain registration, payment processing using a dba name, and get a box at a UPS store and claim it as the business address.

    Banks in the U.S. require ID to verify citizenship and to get a TAX ID for reporting purposes.

    Internationally, I am not sure if this is possible either. Look at Wikileaks and the issues it is having with payment processing.

    VCCs will solve the problem or you could just register a Business account with a legit EIN and it will show your company name rather than your legal one.

    Just use the Costa Rica based Liberty Reserve: Payments are non-refundable, fees are very low, you can make private payments (the recipient never sees your purse number) and best of all they never ask for any IDs. You need to forget about accepting credit cards though.

    The problem usually is that the services that off you privacy are hardly ever used by the masses and even more seldom allow you to become a credit card merchant.

    Wide card acceptability creates a fertile ground for fraud and would get the payment processor burned fairly soon.
