Swiss Credit Card Processing

Hi does anyone know a Swiss credit card processing company? Also, an easy way to get set up with an Internet Merchant account? I am moving all my stuff over from Canada since I am moving to Switzerland. I don't want non-Swiss services because there is too much intrusion in other countries.

thanks

Re: Swiss Credit Card Processing

Any reason not to keep it running in Canada? Or will your clientele change to a Swiss clientele?

Re: Swiss Credit Card Processing

I am moving to CH for tax purposes. I don't want anything here anymore. Also, because of the US, there isn't any banking privacy anymore. I want my whole set up to be Swiss if possible.

Shopping Cart Software

Thanks for the great responses for the credit card processing. Hey I also am looking for shopping cart solutions that will integrate with the credit card processing. For example, in the US there is 1ShoppingCart, and 2Checkout, and of course PayPal. However, I am looking for a Swiss solution. I do recurring billing. It's all online. I write a stock market newsletter. thanks!

I can only tell you that Switzerland is the most profitable credit card market in Europe - and this is not because of efficiency.... like in many other markets, there is very little competition which keeps prices at high levels. If you really want a Swiss acquirer, the two mentioned before are your options. Personally, I think Aduno might be a bit more flexible and could be the better fit for a new business. Just try calling them (you'll find them on google). However, you might really be better off with an acquirer from another country.
