    Not sure if Moneybookers accepts casino/gambling websites, but www.neteller.com does it ;)

    Thank you for your replies.

    Moneybookers does not accept directly credit cards. As for Neteller my country is not on the list.

    However ePassporte looks promising. I signed up but I am still waiting for my email from them.

    By the way do you have any idea how much is it going to cost to integrate the payment gateway with the casino script ?

    Try chronopay.com they take online pharmacies and porn sites, so I doubt they will have problems with a casino.

    Neteller is actually pulling out of the online gambling field. Their executives were arrested a few months ago when the new law passed.

    One thing you could do it look at the competition, download their software. Pretend like you are going to deposit money into your account, and they will list off their payment processing options, which you could then research and use yourself. Doesn't cost you anything and you'll find out quickly which companies will accept it.

    As a side note - if you are opening a casino make sure you are very familiar with the new "Unlawful Internet Gambling..." law that was just passed a few months ago. It's extremely important if you are going to market to the US.

    Yes I am going to target US.

    I will appreciate it if you point me out where I can read more about that law. I am a non-US guy and I really don't know where to begin.

    Just search Google for "Unlawful Internet Gambilng Act" and you'll get several thousand resources for it.

    Basically the US gov't can't stop people from using online casinos, so they gave up trying. Instead they went after the payment processors. The Act makes it illegal for a credit card processor to accept a transaction that will be used for Internet Gambling. So companies like Visa/Master Card/American Express/Diners Club/etc have had the responsibility of stopping online gambling thrown onto them (gotta love americans, if they can't stop a problem they just give it to somebody else lol). The exact way this will be moderated and such is not really clear right now.

    The law was passed in Oct 2006, and it gave all the processing company 10-12 months to get their act together and stop processing online gambling transactions. So there's still about 4-5 months of this grace period open.

    However, this law only applies to US billing companies. So you should look for an offshore billing solution (try search Costa Rica, Belize, Gibraltar, Spain, and South Africa, they all accept online gambling as legal).

    You'll have to set up a couple of payment methods. Just having Neteller wont do ... unless you are only interested in that niche (could work - big payment niche). If you don't have any idea - then it's probably a good idea to become a neteller merchant, and take it step by step from there... But this wont do it if you intend to target US... then you'll have problems before starting. Otherwise, just ask your bank or financial institute if they can help you out.

    Btw I'm guessing that the larger networks support merchants ie they will deliver some kind of payment methods. Research this and you might have a solution.

    well a topic that suits me! mabe i can be of some help to you :D, well since me being a avid online poker player, Neteller is out of the question, the owners were recently arrested by the FBI and they no longer deal in America. Bascially you cant use Credit cards anymore because of the new law passed,(its possible some still do).

    So your down to limited options, As far as poker sites go you can use Walgreens visa gift cards, epassport (can take up to a week to verify and week to send money) and thats about all i know about right now that are guarenteed. hope that helped..
