This actually looks very useful. I might have to look into writing something similar for my own billing.@ you might want to purchase this module for WHMCS and save yourself allot of trouble when it comes to chargebacks:
@WSWD there are two ways to look at this, kind of like a double edged sword:Unfortunately a lot of hosts can't do this because they aren't real companies.
True, but in my experience, PayPal, Stripe, etc. will drop people far quicker, regardless of your previous volume. They just simply dont want to deal with it.
- your record with your payment processor is a key factor for them in determining if you are worth keeping around; previous volume of business and how much money they made from you versus how much they've spent on you is also important; you're a customer to them so for them it's trouble versus profit
That's the cost of running a real business. There are fees involved, and taxes, and costs associated with that. But like in anything business, you should shop around. If your bank is charging all sorts of fees, you should get a new one. I think that's pretty obvious. There isn't an online payment processor out there who can touch the rates we get, and lack of fees that our bank provides. AND they aren't going to drop us in the event of a couple chargebacks.
- everyone has to start from somewhere and using your bank as your payment processor isn't always the best idea; every payment processor likes fees, your bank might not be any better than any of the other merchant banks out there like BankCard for example who have fees for anything you can think of, and some things you can't
Nice find. Looks useful. Might look at it if chargebacks pick up.@ you might want to purchase this module for WHMCS and save yourself allot of trouble when it comes to chargebacks:
@concerto49 after evaluating that module closely we have found a few bugs. I have since contacted the author and I'm waiting to hear back from him. Basically it doesn't work right (for us it doesn't work at all).Nice find. Looks useful. Might look at it if chargebacks pick up.
