2checkout.com dumped our site www.jurgita.com. Everything was OK for few years, but they decided not to provide payments anymore. The reason: they don't want to provide merchant account to the site which displays so called Pre-adult content.

What is pre-adult content???

We are reputable modeling agency here in Lithuania. We work with children, we have the right to work with children. Our models works successfully in in high Fashion modeling industry.
For example Laura Muraskaite, she presents the collections in All known Fashion shows in Paris, Milan, London, Barcelona. She presents collections of the most known designers of the world. (Jil Sander, Ghost… etc) But she is 15 at the moment. Most of the models start their carriers at 14, 15, not at 18 years old. !8 years old model in Fashion modeling industry considers OLD model and its late to start the carrier at that age.
I don't quite understand what wrong they see in the content. This is our speciality, we don't provide any pornographic content and we follow all
Europe Union laws. We cant do otherwise, because we will loose the license. There is no even any Nude content at all. It doesn't matter if the model 18 or not, We do not accept any nude content and try to verify every photo.
But 2-chechout sees something Bad with the content and treats it not acceptable to them. I understand that its their site and they can do whatever they want, but still I find this a bit weird and not professional.
When I wrote this letter to them, I got following explanation: "This decision was made by our upstream provider of processing services
who instructed us to immediately cease support of any type of pre adult content. We sincerely regret their decision but, as they have the
ability to terminate our services at any time, we're left with no choice but to comply with the notification we received."
In other words – Negotiations and further examination are not acceptable.
After this "Adventure" I can not recommend 2checkout.vom as a professional service. Think about before taking it, you can be dumped particularly for no reason.

Update 21/05/2005

When jurgita.com was dumped, 2-checkout.com manager told that the rest of money will be sent after 60 days. There were about 2000 usd in the account.
After 60 days we contacted the 2-checkout.com again and asked for our money. Surprisingly we got the answer that our account was cancelled and all money confiscated ! WHAT!!!! They changed their conditions and they confiscated legally earned money!!!
We sent more mails, asked to clarify, and none of further emails were answered.

So I can clearly call 2-checkout.com rogues. They simply Stole our money. DO not ever trust this payment processor!! I'm not alone who tells these kinds of things about 2-checkout.com. They are stealing money from lots of people without any explanation and reason.

    I agree. The gang at 2checkout.com is not trustworthy. I have also had bad experiences of promised refunds, and would recommend you avoid 2checkout.com

    I 100% agree with you. I have horrible experience with 2co as well. They just shut down your account without any explanation. They think they’re like the monopoly in this market. I hope google checkout can destroy them. Use Paypal or Google checkout, never go for 2checkout. 2checkout will not provide solution for you, instead it will make you go bankrupt.
