        Well, really 2CO is best bet... you mention Paypal no option.. well there is Google checkout see if it's available there.

                      That would then turn out to be fairly expensive.
                      1. You pay the service charge on each charge out.
                      2. They charge you a fee to wire it to your account in Pakistan. (minimum wire charges in most cases are $30+.
                      3. They convert it into rupees at their end, using their own bank rate, which will be far less than the market rate in Pakistan.

                      So for a $500 charge, you could easily lose out $50 or more. Am i right in this?

                        Hmm according to 2co website, it charges $10 per wire transfer. and they send it in USD so it depends on Pakistan bank what rate they give after conversion. If you have a USD account you shouldnt be losing any money on conversion.

                          Their are couple of companies are available:

                          1) Paypal (Not available in Pakistan) - ( One of the best)
                          2) 2Checkout ( Very good & reliable service) - check their per-transaction fee
                          3) Authorize.Net (Tried & found awesome service. Rates are low too)
                          4) Paypoint.net (Haven't checked yet)
                          5) Google Checkout (If i was you, i will take it. Because google behind it)
                          I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

                            Hello everyone. I am Bion with 2Checkout. I noticed this topic and I am glad to read some very positive comments about the company. I thought I might just clear up some specific parts.

                            You can get wire transfers made to your bank - but there is a fee of 10 USD. We also have a partnership with a company called Payoneer where we can make payments to a reloadable credit card. This can be used anyplace that accepts MasterCard. This could be more convenient than conventional wire transfer.

                            I believe that there was some question about the $49 account fee. This fee is a one time fee for the account. After that, there is only the comission - no monthly membership/account fees.

                            I guess I should also mention that all of our contact options (our Community Page, Ticket System, and Customer Service ) are available 24/7 and are open to both existing and potential 2CO vendors, or even the mildly curious

                              ^ the real question now, does 2CO provide account facility to businesses out of USA, Canada & Europe? and what are the requirments?
                              Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.
