I am looking for service provider suggestions for processing credit cards for a business outside the US (UK and Australia) in the website traffic niche.

So far I am still using Stripe, but a friend of mine from the UK has just recently gotten his Stripe account getting closed for a particular website that was in the website traffic niche.

He needs a new provider that works with website traffic niche sites in the UK and I am just looking in case Stripe should ever ask me to move on as well.

From PayPal, 2Checkout, AlertPay to Stripe... what could be next?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Isn't PayPal the usual go-to?

    PayPal was the 2nd after 2Checkout to not allow to sell products in the website traffic niche.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Im not going to say that I work in that niche or ever have... but have you gone to your local bank to see what their options are? Outside of platforms I work with ( eBay, Etsy, Amazon etc ) I use a merchant account from my primary bank for any and every instance I accept payments for products and services.

    I have no clue about the UK, but here in Australia there is just one that works in USD... the rest are AUD. And I somehow assume it would be harder to sell products in AUD than in USD.

    Anyway, that one Bank here is NAB and I don't remember anymore if I tried or if I just looked at their form and gave up without even trying.

    If all else fails, I might return to that option and will have to figure out how to explain website traffic as a product to a local bank that mainly understands local retail business.

    It somehow seems so much easier to open an account online.

    I suppose... the easier it is to get, the easier it is to lose?

      Things are obviously a bit different in the banking sector than say the States. Apparently you can go into your bank and apply for a Foreign Exchange Account specifically for USD?

      Im not understanding why you would have to "explain" what it is you are selling? I know my bank has never asked.

      Granted things in AU are a bit more "strict", but its 2022 Probably somewhere in the 25% of all financial exchanges occur online.

      But neither you or I make the rules right? we have to play by them. I can just tell you what I know, and based on my experience with My USD bank this isnt really an issue - and in the long run easier than dealing with 2nd and 3rd tier banking solutions
