Service Providers that follow Due ProcessPublished 2021-9-21
These are companies that either market themselves as "for freedom" or that come recommended as I've been asking around.
Cloud / Hosting
- XMission: https://xmission.com/privacy-pledge
- Epik: https://www.epik.com/blog/why-epik-welcomed-gab-com.html
- Sibyl: https://sibyl.li/store/norway-bunker-vps
- XODS: https://xodsws.com/
Not sure I'd trust this one, but listing it all the same:
- Smart Way Hosting: https://smartwayhosting.com/ (a gimmick perhaps? will cancel "offensive" accounts as per their Acceptable Use Policy)
- AlignPay: https://alignpay.com/
- Second Amendment Processing: https://www.secondamendmentprocessing.com/our-mission
- Klicked: https://klicked.com/
- Gravity Payments: https://gravitypayments.com/services/invoicing-recurring/ (recommended)
- iTransact (maybe? bought by Payroc) https://gateway.itransact.com/h/cp/user_sessions/landing & https://developers.itransact.com/api-reference/
- World Pay: https://www.fisglobal.com/en/merchant-solutions-worldpay/small-business (recommended by a reliable source who has faced processing issues)
ProPay(values have changed) https://www.propay.com/en-US/Legal/ProPay-High-Risk-Acceptable-Use-Policy Authorize.netsold to Visa, values have changed
Side note: NMI vs Authorize.net
It looks like everyone is either using NMI or Auhorize.net under the hood. I don't think there are any other players in the space except for the big names even consumers know - like PayPal, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Square, and Stripe. All all the niche processors one of those two platforms in white-label fashion.
If they sell high-risk items, such as firearms, they probably use NMI.
Apparently NMI is the sort of thing that services like Stripe are built on. The iframe pop-up product is called "collect.js". Search for a few direct quotes from the docs and a lot of identical developer API portals come up:
- https://www.nmi.com/sdks-and-apis ( https://dev.nmi.com/sdks-and-apis )
Every service is going to have some "at our sole discretion" clause. This can't be helped.
Other words like "harmful" and "abuse" have the traditional legal meaning of financial hardship - such using excessive bandwidth or CPU on purpose or otherwise causing service disruption for other customers.
