    I can't seem to find a good payment processor for my eBook site... The stories about PayPal are scaring the shit out of me. Also can't seem to find a good merchant account.

    Help me guys

    thanks

    Is PayPal still a option for me? I'm not doing anything shady.

    Moneybookers looks pretty good.

    thanks

    You could use Google Checkout instead, or a site that allows you to accept credit cards for payment (like Tradebit).

    only problem with paypal is when you're selling stuff and people ask you for a refund, majority of the time the buyer wins the case, no matter how much proof you show paypal. Well, this is what I've heard.

    I am also off from my Digital Business because of this problem. If I use PP, they always like to give back to the buyer. AlertPay I think only accept Visa and only can set one shopping cart at a time, they also need some documents. MoneyBookers looks good but their policies somehow like PP, they have low limits to withdraw and they also need some verifications. And about others, who will trust them?

    Paypal is an asshole, Google Checkout doesn't allow Australians, ClickBank has some high ass fees at 7.5%, 2Checkout has high fees too at 5.5%, so only option left is Authorize.net.

    What's a good Authorize.net reseller that works with e-junkie?

    Thanks guys

    Any more suggestions guys?

    ClickBank has high fess but if I promote my own product and start generating sales with it, will my own sales create exposure on their marketplace by increasing the gravity or whatever?

    Thanks

    If you want to see 'increased' sales use paypal

    If you want to see Actual money paid to you use Plimus.

    You decide what you want 'Sales' or 'Actual cash' coz paypal wont let you run so easily.
