Hello Verza merchant,

By now you must have heard the bad news that Verza will no longer
be taking our credit card processing. I myself have been using
Verza for four months now. Anyway I knew little about this
beforehand (but I didnt realized it will be this soon) and did
some research and came up with another payment processor that is
even cheaper than Verza. Its called 2checkout. Here are some of
the plus points that I have found to be valuable for me:

cheaper to use than Verza - at 5.5 percent plus 0.45 cents per

for International users - wiring fees can be low or free
accepts all four major cards - Master, Visa, Discover and Amex
accepts payment from all over the world instead of selected few

easy html codes using either link or form tags
you can incorporate your own shopping cart program
sells products and services
take auction payments too
safe - going to be insured with Lyodds of England
and many more
Here take a look yourself and do some research and you will find
them to be good. The URL is

Yes, I do make a small referrer commission but I am first and
foremost an online merchant just like yourself, and I am in the
same predicament as I too have to make a switch.

Hope this helps you as it has helped me, btw I found your address
using a search engine.
