    Hello everyone,

    I am in the planning of open a membership website, most likely an adult dating site. I'll order an anonymous webhost like prq.se with domain protection and pay with bitcoins to stay anonymous.
    For software I'll use skadate which offers some integrated payment options. But how do I stay anonymous when somebody pays? For example if somebody wants to join my site and
    he decides to use paypal or ccbill he will see who is receiving the money he pays. How do you guys receive your money?

    best,
    mesonic

    The reason Paypal and CCBill are more transparent in this regard is because I believe they have to report transactions to the US government for tax reasons. I would doubt you will find a payment processing company that is both anonymous and reliable.
    Have you considering setting up a Bitcoin payment system?

    One idea is to start a company, and get a new paypal / bitcoins / whatever else account under the name of the company. But, this only goes so far because if someone looks up the company they will see you listed as the owner.

    You can open an offshore company with nominal service. In this case you'll be anonymous

    ainmaker577: I'm not realy considering bitcoins as most people dont know about that payment method - yet. I think people are carefully when paying online. They will trust known payment methods like paypal, bank wire, ccbill etc.
    I'm not trying to avoid taxes, I will pay them. The only reason to stay anonymous is because I want to avoid trouble while promoting an adult site in germany and also doing some blackhat'ish advertising or using nulled scripts.

    thedorf: I'm reading into that topic. But most times its very costly and as you said its not very 'safe'. Then I was thinking about offering only micro-payment systems like sms payment? Like offering a free membership all the time but charging the user for writing messages to each other - but I guess thats not a good idea.

    primadg: So that company should at best be in panama, cyprus, belize etc. right? And a bank account should be opened in the name of the nominal person. Would this offshore bank account work together with ccbill, paypal, moneybookers, securepay etc.? What are the possible problems?
