What credit cards can I accept?

Because of the credit card rules, many merchants simply assume they can accept all credit and debit cards no matter what they are doing or where they are located. Unfortunately this isn't the case.

To be able to accept credit cards you can be incorporated anywhere (within reason). However to accept debit cards you must be incorporated in the country the debit card originates, normally the UK and Europe. Below is a list of cards and the country your business must be incorporated in.

All Visa debit and credit
