Canadian Merchant Account
That time again..

 6:19 am on Jun 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

I've whittled my task list down to a point where the profitable thing to do might be to switch from 2checkout to a canadian merchant account.

Anyone know of any merchant accounts that are available for Canadian citizens?

I've been using Internet Secure for the past 4 months now, and so far so good. I believe they are based out of Oakville, ON. They handle both Canadian and US funds.

They are a bit pricy, but with an account you can also manually process transactions. I've had a few design clients where this has come in handy!

I would stay away from Paysystems (Montreal). I was using their 3rd party processor version (my#*$!) until they suddenly stopped their services with no warning. Many people, including me, lost money that had been processed by them.

Good service with Internet Secure over 10 months. Very responsive to any questions. Some initial tweaking to get complete compatibility with 3rd party cart was handled well.

Note: They can set you up to use several languages if appropriate.

moneris/eSelect have reasonable rates and integration is fairly easy but eSelects service has been spotty lately

I have been using InternetSecure for about 4 months and have been quite pleased with them. Support has always been great. My current rate on a USD account is:
-3.75-4% discount rate (depending on the credit card)
-8% 6 month rolling reserve for all cards except mastercard

The only thing I really don't like is the pay out times (twice a month), which has about a 3-4 day delay. At least they can deposit funds automatically in your account.

Overall they are a little more expensive, it takes a little more time to get your funds -- but they have great support and are extremely reliable.

Go with Merchant-Accounts.ca

They'll get you set up with WorldPay.

First class companies, both of them... saved our a** when PaySystems skipped town with the loot...
