    I am trying to get a UK business bank account with the facility to take CC over the phone and process with virtual terminal but my credit rating does not appear to be good enough.

    I have tried with Paypal as well and they refused.

    Anyone have any ideas or inside contacts ?

    I'm not sure whether you specifically need to have your a/cc geographically located in the U.K. but have you tried going for an Irish account? It's easier & not much difference to UK account.

    Benefits are the same as UK bank a/cc's. They're pretty much the same and viewed as the same through banking clearing houses.
    Also, from your point of view, the security measures to open their a/cc's are less stringent.
    Suggested Irish Banking establishments with a good fiscal footprint in the U.K. are:
    Allied Irish Bank
    Bank of Ireland
