    ok guys, so guess what ? yeah thats right, paypal screwed me over. my account was limited and they asked me to send in my ID, proof of address and my SSN, which i did, the ID and proof of address went well.
    but the SSN did not, so i faxed it to them instead of uploading, then waited, then called, and they said, my account will be limited for 180 days, and then i can take my funds out... WTF, Anyways, i run a BST thread here at bhw, so im redirecting all of my payments to my cousins paypal. go figure. so, paypal has screwed me and now im going to do a few other things.

    im adding these to my thread

    Intuit (2co alternative/ accepts CC)
    Money Bookers (yay!)
    and the last one i have in mind is plimus,

    now, what else would you guys want to be a payment option,

    oh yeah, i have heard really bad things about plimus, and really good things.

    i don't want to cut the paypal people outta the loop, so, can someone help me make a decision, i need a paypal alternative, plimus is up for debate. give me some options and tell me the positives and negatives of them all.

    and i posted this in the business / tax advice because i run all of my work outta my paypal.. at least i used to, my website, my backlinking, and a few other things.

    Why not 2checkout? I've heard mixed reviews and they are quite expensive, but I've never had an issue with them all year and have put XX,XXX through one account. I would check them out. You can accept Paypal through 2CO and load your funds onto a neteller card.

    Your cousin's account will just get limited as well, eventually.

    You're far better off going with a merchant who will accept Paypal and not deal with them separately.

    Yeah, they process Paypal through their own account which won't get limited. You'll get charged a few % on top but IMO the fact you can take CC is a massive plus. Not sure what kind of volumes you are doing but bear in mind they will also hold a rolling reserve for 90 days and I think it's about 10% of sales (to fulfil refunds etc).
