    I was planning on using Revecom.com for my credit card transactions but they are unable to accept payment in Canadian funds at present. Are there any other companies out there that can offer a professional looking interface?

    I am also looking for a low-cost service (like 2checkout.com or revecom.com) that can accept [red]Canadian[/red] payments. My business is based in Vancouver, BC, Canada and most of my clients are local so my prices are listed in Canadian currency.

    I feel it would be somewhat confusing to my clients to list in CAN and then have to charge in USD. (Not to mention that the exchange is always changing, so I'd end up loosing more $$..

    Thanks for any help!

    Have you looked into WorldPay ? I know they offer multi-currency processing. I haven't heard much on them lately, I know SitePoint uses them some for their e-book order processing. I'd do a search here in the forums on WorldPay to get reviews from other users.

    I know http://www.canadamerchantaccounts.com can offer you a real merchant account without the need to incorporate in the US. Rates and fees are low. Though I don't know if you're wanting to go that far just yet. If not, bookmark the site for later when the time arrives.

    I did check out their site.. but my vision must be off because their cheapest package (actually the only price listed - WorldDirect) was US$399 setup, US$25 monthly. I was unable to find pricing details on any other packages.


    I'm guessing that this is for a merchant account.. because if it isn't I don't see how they can possibly stay in business with 2checkout.com and revecom.com charging only $45 setup and no monthly fee.

    Yeah, it's for a merchant account. Their right up there with PlanetPayment, price wise that is. You could get a real merchant account cheaper through CanadaMerchantAccounts.com. Guess it doesn't always pay to go with the big guys all the time.

    Heard you signed up for Revecom! Keep us updated on things.

    Yes, after searching the forums.. reading through your site, and visiting a few other places I narrowed down my choices of 3rd party credit card companies to two:

    2checkout.com
    revecom.com

    I would have prefered to use 2checkout.com, however since I require the ability to charge in Canadian funds (the reason for this thread), I was forced to go with revecom.com. Apparently, they support what I need... however I haven't been able to figure out how to get it, so..

    Check out http://sitepointforums.com/showthrea...threadid=37060 for how my next email gets answered..
