Hey gang its been awhile, I have been enjoying life in south Florida...relaxing. RG the new site looks great, congrats.

I have a quick question.

I, like a lot of others here have a Photography workshop called The Tampa Shootout granted its a little more glamour then some workshops out there... I started a new website for the workshop called:

www.thetampashootout.com

I was using paypal to accept registration, I guess they caught wind of the site and took a look apparently I have violated their acceptable use policy so they have banned me from using their services.

I don't think the site is vulgar or of an adult nature, but there is no argueing with them.

Does anyone know of an online payment service, that doesn't have crazy start up costs and takes 6.9% of each transaction.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Jeff, Have you tried to call VISA or Discover? I hear they aren't very pricy. By the way, I want to order you edditing DVD and don't like pay pal, so I'll have to do it the old fashioned way.

I believe one of the keywords they look for on a site is a disclaimer about those under 18. While you've not really put that kind of disclaimer the phrase with those words in it does appear on your site, so a simple web spider would see that on the site and mark it has one that might violate Paypal's rules.

Unfortunately, there don't seem to be other companies that really offer a deal that is as inexpensive as Paypals. Perhaps that is why Paypal is more strict on this type of thing because anything that relates to the "adult" industry tends to have more charge backs and other problems which increase costs for the processor of charges.

I didn't notice anything on your site that was offensive, but there was just enough to probably trigger Paypal's guidelines.

Cheers,
rfs

Jef, took a look and if you were to change the site and was selling ladies under garments instead of a photography session they wouldn't have said a word.

BTW, You ever get any more of those reflectors in?

It is apparent that your violation was "Home Depot Lights!" When they read on your site that you promote this concept they probably went into alarm mode. You thought it was about nudity and it actually was about discount lighting.

Propay.com works like a Merchant Account but the fees are much less. Buyers do not need to join in order to pay.

Another site like paypal is www.neteller.com. It is what most online poker sites use.

Costco has a great service.

westernunion.com should have a service

A lot of the domain registars and hosting companies offer similar service.
