      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

Most companies aren't in the market of removing customers. I'm sure you must of violated a policy.

Yep I must have because all I had was 1 refund which I issued to the client. I take it the other companies / businesses in here also violated policies? http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1254029

The online payment industry is screw up. I've never heard anything about 2CO before. Guess they run a great business practice.. :(

Well let me take you back to 2013, I said it was the OP's fault and not 2CO: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1254029&p=8655997#post8655997 (04-22-2013)

Then on the (08-16-2013): http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1254029&page=3&p=8802194#post8802194 I had the same issue, I asked them why on the support tickets and even linked their reply in the thread, they got the moderator to remove my link.

So approx of 4 months of me standing up to them they closed our account for 1 refund, others have had accounts closed for less than that.

That's just sad. They probably could have made a decent amount off of you.

Alright a little status update.

I applied with CDGCommerce and they told me for the last week the one bank they use has been giving them a hard time with hosting related companies so they've been trying with another bank. I tell ya if it's not one thing with this industry it's something else.

Soooooo as a fall back option does Authorize.net understand our industry? Any recommended authorize resellers?

I've thought about talking to them. The only problem is the WHMCS integration.

That's what a lot of people don't understand.  Most banks will still use a payment gateway that is suitable for WHMCS integration.  My banks used authorize.net.  But it was loads cheaper than going directly through authorize.net.  There was no setup fee, there was no transaction fee, the monthly gateway fee was waived for a long time, and even after that period, it was only something like $9.99/mo.  The 2.9% rate was also significantly lower.  Compare that to the $25/mo. if you go directly through authorize.net, and all the other setup fees, transaction fees, etc.

I'd recommend FirstData -- I got a deal with them through my local credit union. They use the Payeezy gateway -- there's a module for it in the WHMCS directory. It's $80.00, but it's totally worth it.
