I love CMD :-) !!!!
I've used Verotel in the past. I had ONE chargeback and they suspended my account, and their security services/risk management were slow to get ahold of.
You need a different kind of account to charge for camshows - they are primarily a subscription management payment processor.
They are not very flexible, and their "Ticketsclub" can be confusing to clients, since they get around the Visa/MC fees by selling "tickets".
Their affiliate system is good, and their back end is user friendly and attractive.
I've used them on my site for over a year now and have been happy enough with them to keep using and to recommend to others (with some notes, below).
Their support can take DAYS to get back to you, and at one point this was a major issue since I could not manually add a user. I would almost rate them a 2 on that, except that it was technically my fault for updating wordpress which changed the htaccess file pointing to their security script... and they DID end up apologizing for the awful delay in their response. Luckily my client was very understanding.
Please be aware that WORDPRESS UPDATES CAN CHANGE THEIR HTACCESS FILE - so either do NOT use WordPress in your members area, or do NOT do updates, or backup your Htaccess file before updating the code.
Also, it is MUCH easier if your script is in a subdirectory rather than subdomain. This caused me some issues with the initial set up.
They auto blacklist some countries, and once I had a legit fan wanting to join (he was stationed in Africa or something- totally checked out). I just had him pay with a gift card and manually created access.
Their affiliate program is apparently only considered so-so. Rabbits Reviews requires sites that use Zombaio to keep a button on their homepage (v.s. just on the "links" page).
Their help documentation on anything but the initial setup, is pretty hard to find and not very helpful. I think they need to have this issue with WordPress updates covered :-)
I love their low processing rates and that you can accept mastercard and visa without any other fees!
I love that you can generate payment code and sell cam shows very easily with "tokens". You have total control over how you charge and how much etc.
You can easily set up an affiliate system with giving however much of a split you want to sites that promote you.
Their code is easy to generate and to place on your site.
You can have hidden payment options (so I can create a lower promo offer on a hidden page, and not have it show up on the main subscription form).
You can also give discounts for customer loyalty, have trial subscriptions, etc.
They are REALLY flexible in things you charge for and how you can use them. This is the main reason I've rated their software as 4 stars.
Their checks come reliably, after you reach the $100 minimum. It is VERY discreet. I mistook my first check for a bill the first time!
They really are nice and helpful, once you actually reach their customer service.
I would recommend Zombaio to any beginner with a paysite who doesn't want to pay the $1000 visa/mc processing fee.
I've been using Payoneer for the past 3 months and so far have no complaints. I don't have the card though; I use the Bank Transfer option. My money arrives from Cam4 to Payoneer 3 days later, and 2 days later its on my regular bank account in Europe (transfer from Payoneer). I pay $2.99 per transfer which is steep if the amount I transfer isn't high, so it's best to wait and transfer larger amounts.
The exchange rate of the US$ to Euros sucks at the moment, but not much to be done about that! Live support is ok, but they aren't the sharpest tools in the shed, however, I have never had any real issues, so they were able to help and you can reach someone at anytime with Live Help.
In 4 years it never had a single delay except the announced ones.
If members had problems with token packages the admins were always on time with their answer and solution.
I had 2 payments wired to me. The first one went fine. What I was expecting to pay in fees is what I was charged. However on the second transfer I had unexpected/surprise charges totally approximately $80US. I first investigated with my bank (the receiving bank) and obtained all the details of the wire stating that the fees were charged by the sender and corresponding bank. After going back and forth with the OKPay "service" agents, they were not helpful, deflected my questions, and obviously claimed no responsibility. I'm using Payoneer now and find it MUCH better!
Hello Phoenix, which site do you use payoneer for? Ive heard that a lot of sites wont use it, same reasons as paypal.
I dislike how it can be someone difficult to direct people to this option, but the option of sending tips through their messaging system is unique and as convenient as having a tip note, but with more room for details to be specified. It's only a downside if a customer is new to ELM and doesn't know how the system works already.
ELM's support team has always been reliable through email. Their online support is only available during certain times but is very convenient when it is online, they are always quick and courteous, I enjoy using the service.
ELM is adult friendly since it is an adult ecommerce site, payout is reasonable at 65% through Payoneer and other options.
Its the best payment method ever. And im in love with the Support.
Best way to get 100% of what a customer wants. Easy and hassle free while being totally private and secure!
