I Need a Merchant account ASAP! Please help!

    I need a merchant account for the membership website I am about to open for Indonesian people. It's been very difficult for me to find a merchant acc. provider that are willing to open an account for Indonesian people.

    Last time I had one, but when they know most of the buyers coming from Indonesia, they suddenly closed my account without any notification. (Of course most buyers came from Indonesia because it was for Indonesian people!).this is just so unfair.

    I know my country is in the list of high fraud, but not all people are doing fraud. Internet marketing is very new to Indonesian people. So I intend to educate them how to do online business. Now I have more than 10,000 Indonesian people are waiting to join this membership website to learn with me, but I have got difficulties to find a merchant account who will accept payments 99% from indonesia.

    I came accross this site: www.InstaBill.com, they offer merchant account worldwide. I'd like to know if any warriors using or know of this InstaBill? Would you like to share your experience with me? Or have any suggestion what merchant I can use?

    Also, my programmers have created our own affiliate script, suppose I use 3rd party processors like 2checout.com or ibill.com, will they work with any affiliate script?

    thanks a lot!

    I have used authorize.NET for success. Not sure about international accounts with then, but it is worth a try.

    Good luck...

    I contacted Authorize.Net and they wouldn't let me use their services seeing as how I am Canadian. I also contacted my Canadian merchant account provider and they won't let US citizens join!

    I would suggest looking locally within Indonesia.

    Try StormPay.com It's not the greatest service, but it works and they're usually open to anything.

    Also try epassporte.com. You can get a merchant account through them and they allow just about anybody.

    As a last resort you could try ccbill.com, but they tend to focus on adult website merchant accounts, but they have a really good system and it's practically free to setup.

    I would agree with these as I know a few that use them for International accounts.

    I've had good luck chatting with the fine folks at loudcommerce.com - they are setting me up on an international account now.

    Ask for Corey - he's been great.
