    Hello all!

    So im planning a seminar, and I wanna offer the option of paying with a credit card on my website. BUT i do NOT wanna use PayPal. Too afraid theyll freeze my account or something. they are dickheads after all.

    I was checking out 2CO.com and they do not permit seminars, and CCBill.com does not authorize any money making scheme related programs or seminars either.

    What would you recommend? Creating a clickbank account for payment processing?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, google checkout doesn't allow it either..

    Not Allowed:
    Multi-level marketing and wealth creation programs Multi-level marketing programs (including online payment randomizers), matrix, pyramid, Ponzi schemes, wealth creation programs, and all similar programs

    I think im just going to use clickbank man.... Ill enable to pay now button when theres a seminar happening, and unable it when theres none. That way i wont sell soemthing that isnt happening anytime soon :)

    Ive never worked with clickbank before, are they reliable?

    Have you looked into Revolution Money Exchange? It's like Paypal but free. I use them from time to time. It was started by aol founder, Steve Case, and some other big hitters. There's a link in my sig.

    You can get a standard merchant account through your bank or just use g00gle, search for 'merchant account'... When you fill out the form explain to them it's for an educational seminar, should get approved easily. I have one I use for all my software sales.. I used to use Clickstank , they charge almost 10% in fees though so fuck them!

    I think AlertPay.com can also work.

    You are not selling a "wealth creation" program, you are selling admissions to an internet marketing seminar.

    Bill it as such and it will fly right through!

    "Wealth creation" programs are like that shit they sell about how tomake money from the "cash flow" of buying distressed real estate.

    uptown is right , you should be able to use google checkout for this easily, if not get your own merchant account (think authorize.net)

    authorize.net is just a gateway , they're not the company you get the account from.

    Xoom Merchant Account is the most convenient for me. They transfer the payment direct to your bank account in just hours. But they are already discontinuing the service by Aug. 1 which sucks
