When you are getting into the adult business, or any online business for that matter, once of the most important things you need is going to be processing (i.e. how you process payments and credit cards). Over my 17+ years now in the adult industry, there have been a lot of that have come and gone… iBill, ePassport, among others. You need to pick a company that has a long track record and you can trust, enter Verotel.
Now let me preface this by saying, I have found no payment processor perfect, each one has it’s pros and cons. However, I have been with Verotel a good 10+ years now and I have rarely had any serious issues. When I need to get a hold of someone, I can. My payments have always come on-time or early. Most of the time with them, I have been paid early via ACH, something that I do enjoy.
They have an entry level, which I used initially, called ‘tickets club’. This allowed you to keep your expenses to a minimum while building up your website. At which point you would upgrade to a PRO account, and be subject to the fees associated with it. If you are pushing any serious volume, you would want a PRO account. You also need this for NATS, or if you run an affiliate program. But that is for another day.
At the time of this posting, they have three tiers I believe and their rates and percentages can vary. However, you can always contact Jason (firstname.lastname@example.org) and see if they can do something for you outside of the norm posted rack rates. I know this is possible. ;-)
Over all, I am happy with Verotel and the service they provide. They have upgraded their back end making and it’s very user friendly to set up your pay sites and plans. Their turn around on support tickets takes longer than some others, but rarely do I need anything done in 5 minutes from them, so it’s not a major issue for me. Paid early is nice, and not ONE of my clients has ever complained to me about having issues with their credit card or service. They are a solid choice for processing.
