We are often asked why we don’t Accept Credit Cards
In a nutshell we do not accept credit cards as we don’t wish to take the risk of non-payment.
Credit card fraud is the biggest problem with accepting cards. If a transaction is flagged as being fraudulent, the transaction is cancelled
If a transaction is cancelled that means nobody gets paid & why would anyone want to work for free?
Many moons ago we did accept credit cards. One charming gent with a skimmed credit card & fake ID had a lovely party…. The transaction was cancelled & as the ladies had all done their job; we didn’t think it was fair for them not to be paid, so we paid the ladies. This cost the agency a LOT of money and this is not a situation we ever wish to happen again
If an individual lady wishes to take credit cards she is welcome to. Ladies are independent contractors so we don’t dictate how they take payments. But nobody has ever asked if they can use their own card facility
We do accept bank transfers with a minimum of 5 days notice, we also accept foreign currencies with prior arrangement
We do not accept Paypal. Paypal doesn’t allow adult transactions & it’s been mentioned on many forums that Paypal simply freeze your funds & make it near impossible to get them back if a transaction is for adult services
Agency Atlantic is a low fee agency; Low fees to ladies means that those savings are passed on to you. We couldn’t afford to stay in business if we regularly had to pay out for fraudulent credit card transactions, our margins simply aren’t high enough to absorb this cost
