That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..
No, you don't have to be a registered company. You do have to have a bank account where they can deposit the funds although I can't remember if they stipulate it has to be a business bank account or not..
I'm at the stage where the IR know I have a business but I am not yet VAT registered - that is in the future. I do plan on forming a limited company eventually but, again, that is a future concern..
I think as far as Worldpay go, they don't care whether you are registered with anyone, provided they get their fees...
Having waded through Worldpays FAQs, I would concur with JulieCSM. I am about to register and would like to give one and ask one:.
1. You HAVE noted the new year offer where they waive the 20 pm fee for 6 months and halve the worldaccess fee - comes to 310..
1. Is it easy to integrate Worldpay with OSC? I note that it is not a "switchonable" option out of the box..
I have just had to let cCheckout go because although their fees and setup charges and integration with OSC were superb - they interpreted all my prices as USD - even though I price exclusively in GBP..
Seems it's a one horse race if yoiu are a start up looking for card servives in the UK..
It is very easy to integrate WorldPay with osc. There is a Worldpay contrib which is simple to install..
Never given me any problems...
I'm wanting to accept credit cards on my iPage site and am looking at Worldpay. Do I need to be a registered business to use them?..
Basically what are the minimum requirements for using Worldpay? Do I need to be a registered company?..
