I opened this and a similar ticket with two of my favorite companies:
To whom it may concern,
I'd like to give you a heads-up about something relatively new you might want to look into in the area of online processing of money.
It's a new thing that was recently invented. It's kind of like a digital commodity currency people trade online called Bitcoin. The cool thing about it it isn't owned by anyone. It's an open source projects that a bunch of programmers developed completely openly for everyone to see how it works but because of it's ingenious design it's still very secure and very private to use.
- much lower fees
- accessible from anywhere in the world
- no chargebacks possible
- no need to give out your ID info to be able to use it, therefor no ID theft possible
- no one can stop your transactions or prevent you from making a new one, no one can freeze your money
- protected by military grade encryption and relying on the laws of math making it practically impossible to counterfeit
Practically it behaves much like cash on the street but on the internet and it's completely legal too.
The main part: people actually use this method and value bitcoins at about $5 a pop right now.. so I really wanted to share this with you.
Today there are several online exchanges where one can buy them and it's pretty easy to get or sell some. Here are a few links if you'd like to find out more:www.bitcoin.org

- independent IMO leading payment processor ( probably most interesting to you )
I'm not part of the project or any of the companies I linked nor am I an expert in how it works, I'm just an enthusiast who follows it regularly. Even so I would be more than happy to help you find answers to any questions you may have.
Both tickets got answered one directing me to forward the info to their official company email which I doubt got anywhere where as in the other I got told it was forwarded to the higher ups. Haven't seen the payment option adopted yet but these are pretty big companies and I doubt they'd be willing to take the perceived risk.
