PayPal has blocked one of my social business accounts which they refuse to discuss with me and keep telling me to have subscribers pay using a different system. This paypal account has been associated with the site since 2010 and in the entire period has had 4 disputes; the last being in 2017. 

According to PayPal their "Security algorithim detected some unusal activity".

What other alternative payment processors are yall using?

Does anybody know of a good developer who can create a gateway for:

1. Payoneer

2. Flutterwave

Thinking of it, why arent other payment systems built into phpFox?

Thanks.

The challenge I see is that most ecommerce websites are US based. Being a global business, I find that due to US FTC banking regulations, the payment processors that are US favoured do not accept, or rather, treat every other country traders as hostile entities.

As an example, I have a truly global site whose members buy products from China and raw materials from Africa. These two markets are blocked by PayPal, and trading with them on my paypal site, rendered the site useless, as the phpFox site goes to jail leteraly any time I transfer funds from the Paypal account to my US bank account. I guess, paypal thinks I am laundering or "washing" money.

In my Social Engine website, I use PayPal, Skrill and Payoneer. 

Paypal for US members because It is a US company

Skrill for EU member states because it is a UK company

Payoneer for the world over because they are friendly to what Trump called "sh!thole" countries.

So, to sum my vote, I would definitely add Payoneer and Skrill.

Forgot to add Flutterwave which a few months ago received $170 million in funding, and have an agreement with PayPal to handle Africa transactions https://dig.watch/updates/flutterwave-partners-paypal-allow-african-merchants-accept-and-make-payments

Hi All,

Your comments about adding new payment gateways into phpFox default platform has been noted from our end and in this thread, I want to collect your idea about this master as well. Except Paypal, according to you, which global payment gateways need to add in next phpFox versions?

Hope to receive your thoughts.

Regards,

Vinny Ms.

I say Gpay would be better than PayPal since most people who uses Chrome already have their card information saved, even if you don't have a Gpay account, you can easily hit pay with Google which people trust Google more than PayPal. I've had issues with PayPal, they will take your money and throw all kind of loopholes so they won't have to pay you back. Rid them please.

"Rid them please"

Sorry for your issues but they do have millions of users, and I used them in my previous business. I had over 2200 customers and over 1.2 million dollars processed through PayPal without any issues that I lost.  I am not saying I didn't have any issues but they always listen, and though I had to provide proof they always turned to my favor since I as not doing anything wrong.  Here are some stats which shows that there will be some that end up getting screwed by them, but that is because a lot of people use them, and some people are not honest and that can be on the buyers side as well as the seller side. I don't think it would be a great idea to get rid of them.  But, I do think would we should have some additional options and Gpay is moving up fast with about half the users which is a good sign and might be the future.

  • PayPal currently has 361 million active users.
  • The average PayPal user conducts 40 transactions per year.
  • 87.5% of online buyers use PayPal.
  • PayPal had $5.46 billion in net revenue in 2020
  • PayPal accounts for 22% of online transactions in the US.
  • The average PayPal user has $485 in their account.

PayPal, like most financial institutions, are thugs. They ain't your mommas keeper. But, it is always good to know the devil that you know than the angel that you don;t; until the angel becomes a devil. PayPal is not going anywhere soon, keep them! Just add onto them. Think global!

 

Don't know about other countries, but in India, Paypal doesn't allow domestic transactions. Also, there are issues with bank linking in Paypal India. I got custom work done to integrate PayU, but it could not be integrated fully. 

Request to phpFox (have been asking it for a long time) - Please integrate a payment gateway for India. The most popular ones are PayU, Razorpay, Paytm, Citruspay, BillDesk

Never try for a customised payment gateway. I had a bad exprrience. In worst case you can try the advanced payment gateway addon. Or better , request/beg/threaten :) phpfox team to have major payment gatewyas ( including RazorPay ) in the core module :).

I am hoping for at least two payment options in V5 for the core product without using an addon would be nice...being modern and all (hint: Stripe)

Although there is this option, with too many options for me  :)

How do you integrate this successfully into mobile apps?

Right! I have spent a few lacs of hard-earned money on customizations and then gave up and installed a fresh copy of the core script. because customizations and core bugfixes/ feature updates complement each other in torturing the script owner.

Here are some great alternatives. I think PHPFox would make a lot more money from international buyers if these gateways were available.

Cardinity
QuickPay
PayTR
CCAvenue
Payeezy
Razorpay
PagSeguro
Mobio SMS
RoboKassa
Redsys
Wallet One
Fortumo SMS
BitPay
Skrill
Payu
Dotpay
Przelewy24
Transferuj
2Checkout
Stripe
Authorize

Maybe PHPFox or a plugin author can make a payment gateway plugin with the alternatives above.

I opened a ticket in regard to this. My PayPal was recently banned and I can't recover it. I'll suggest that these payments will be added and it should also be compatible with the mobile apps because I use the mobile apps.

Paystack

cashapp would be a good one to add as a gateway, I think Square uses it as one
