Hey guys,

It's very simple, I'm running VirtueMart (w/ Joomla) and I am very satisfied. We're into product sales such as DVD's, CD's, books, etc. For now Im running Paypal, which is working well, but I have a big international base of clients that are trying to get a hold of the products we're selling. Even if Paypal is big, it's nowhere near as widespread as we want....so we're cutting a lot of the WANTED fat! :)

I looked at some merchant services providers such as:

Authorize.net (only does transactions in the US)
1shoppingcart.com (crappy service. they NEVER answer the phone or emails)
<insert any adult processor here> (tried em all, they arent interested in my model of fulfillment)

Can anyone point me in the right direction? What do most of you guys use for processing credit cards on your site(s) OTHER than Paypal?

Thanks a million!

Well the first company you mentioned does support some international merchants, but it is only an electronic payment gateway, you still need a merchant account. It depends on what country you are located in and what is on those DVDs (if they are adult in nature)

No, they aren't in adult nature. Mostly in a niche market such as music/media.

I suggest that you look at the largest international banks: Citibank and HSBC would be my first thoughts

Call the London office, or wherever the head of international ecommerce is and start there. usually they want to meet you and have losts of security issues but once overcome, they can be great...

Hey bootsauce...

If I am correct,and if you use virtuemart, I think you can link the paymodule WWW.WORLDPAY.com to your store....

There are some excellent international payment gateways. If you want specifics, private email me.

Of course, the most important aspect is fraud protection. You certainly want the ability to block certain countries, computer addresses, and so forth.

Corey, AuthNet is strange. The party line from them is that they are US only; however, I've seen some international applications for them.

yes that gateway that you mentioned can support international merchants but it is getting the merchant account account provider to actually do that.

You might check out the gateway Protx b00tsauce. And then Barclay's, Lloyd's, HSBC - depending on the location. I'll tell you this in the public forum since promotion is not allowed on this board

Not to pick an argument here; however, I was in no way promoting a product on this board.

I am fully aware of the rules. My only intention was simply to provide useful information.

I found a company that accepts international credit cards and processes international orders for FREE. <snip>
