So, this is for the newbs, if you are an uber Bro, you’ll get nothing out of this.
Someone posted on a forum asking how to set up billing and went for verotel because they didn’t have a long QC process.
Nothing wrong with Verotel, but by only going with them, you’re making a mistake.
There are two big Internet Payment Service Providers, (IPSPs) Epoch and CCBill. Both been around over 10 years, both good and reliable. Then there are a couple of smaller ones like Segpay, Zombiabiioioi etc that will offer you a much lower rate at a much higher risk.
A few years ago they Epoch and CCBill started playing nicely together with cascading billing. This means if you try and join a site via CCBIll and CCBill refuse your card, your deets get parsed to Epoch and they might well accept it.
This alone will add 10% to your bottom line.
They both have different scrubs (the software they use to say if they think it is fraud or not), so one may accept a card the other declines. And viceversa. They also will now parse affiliate codes. So you can get paid out on an Epoch sale if you sent traffic to a CCBill join. All good.
Easy to set up, easy to implement.
Then you add a third payment like Segpay so you can pick up anything the two big guys refuse.
Also, here is a massive tip, unless you do two joins a month, remember that an IPSP’s rate is ALWAYS negotiable. So just ask for a discount. You’ll get one.
Hope that helps some of you. Any questions, email me or post a comment.
