    Hi all,

    we are a credit card payment processor, with our own payment platform, excellent fraud control instruments and a chargeback rate as low as 2%. We are processing payments from Sportsbook and Bingo. Of course we accept US cards since in our country it's legal. We are looking for off-shore banks which can offer us merchant accounts. We would like to communicate via API. Is there anyone out there who can give us some recommendations? I'm looking for weeks now and havn't found any bank which would accpet payments from US cards.
    Any help is highly apreciated.
    Thanks in advance and have a nice day.

    haxxor I'd suggest that you use telephone directories and Google to find the contact details of banks who may be able to provide the service you need. Start calling them and asking if they can provide that service, if they can't ask them for recommendations of someone who would be willing to work with your business.

    You could also contact the credit card companies whose payments you process. Ask them if they can recommend banks that might be able to provide you with a merchant account.

    Good luck with it and please do post back to let us know how it works out for you.
