Well, there's worldpay. I've always considered nochex to be more of a UK
equivalent to paypal though.

Paypal.co.uk :p
fastpay.com aka moneybymouse.com (natwest bank)
nochex.com

Worldpay are very expensive IMO to sign up with.

They are very good however they are not a PayPal equivilent.

WorldPay offer several different accounts, all of which are aimed at
business clients, to provide credit/debit card payment facilities.

A lot of their business comes from companies who might otherwise have
trouble getting a merchant account with their own bank (perhaps due to
lack of trading history, Internet transactions, etc).

Their charges depend upon the service you use them for. If you take full
merchant facilities from them - ie WorldPay are your merchant bank as well
as the online transaction facilities you can expect to pay 4.5% on credit
card transactions and £0.56 per debit card transaction.

You also pay a small remittance fee and there are fees for extra
anti-fraud facilities but they are not very high.

The big difference from using your own merchant account is that WorldPay
hold onto the money for a number of weeks (4 in our case but I've seen
others where it is 8) before remittance. Of course many other banks
require you to keep a fairly large deposit with them to guarantee against
chargebacks to the effect is much the same.

I like WorldPay as they are easy to work with.

I wrote the Perl module for use with their Select Junior service -

But, isn't Nochex just for debit cards ? Or, has this changed recently ?

Even so, it is a very good way of being able to accept debit card
payments.

I appreciate all your advice! I did'nt realise there where all these. I just
heard alot of negative press with regard to "paypal" and would prefer a UK
site if poss, even if it means not such a good deal.

For what it's worth, I have used Paypal for several years and have had no
complaints. I have read much negative comment about them, but wonder if
this is a case of the dissatisfied few being far more vocal than the happy
ones! The internet does provide good opportunities for the perpetual
whingers lol

Thats interesting! I believe that now PayPal has been taken over by Ebay!
But yes I have read all the problems people have claimed to have had, also
the huge number of websites dedicated to nothing but complaints. It is
enough to strike fear into the hearts of the most trusting of soles....But
Its nice to hear you've not had any probs. Maybe they have got their act
together? I do recall that the main problems are in the US.

I'll second that, I've never had any problems with PayPal - a very
efficient service.

Ditto. However, I'd avoid paypal for high value transactions outside the US.
Their guarantees/insurance only applies to US transactions ISTR.

Thats the same as paypal.com
It's the fees that are a pain ,especially for higher priced/cross border
items if selling and if you charge the buyer that can put them off,well it
puts me off if I am buying

Try alt.queer.etc you pervert!
How do you know he's not referring to female posters? Or, how do you know he
is not a she? Therefore it is a "she" who is in fact inviting you to remove
your pants? eh?
