Credit card payments.

How do you chaps feel about paying for your services by Credit Card (or CC)

Would you pay an independent escort by CC ? - assuming she had the means to accept,

Would you or do you pay a reputable agency with a credit card over the telephone?

Your thoughts please.

I wouldn't for 2 reasons.

1. She would know my real name.

2. It leaves a paper trail.

Now I know that she is not interested in my real name etc but I feel more secure with some level of anonymity.

Not a chance. Cash is completely anonymous. :D

No on all counts.....

Years ago I was a regular at a Gym/Sauna health club but the girls who worked were booked on the front desk, 30, 45 mins or 1hour and I used to use plastic, great it meant more cash in pocket for extras! this went on for years then one day I got a call from "Access" who wanted to confirm some purchases, they had noted that 2 purchases were made on one day from a Video rental shop, well after making some enquiries it turned out that the shop was just a business name front so it looked ok on your statement, but the second purchase was fraud, I never spotted it, glad Access did, seems the receptionist was getting greedy, got money refunded on card ok, I dont ever take plastic with me while punting or anything with identification full stop.

Aside from the obvious problems with discretion mentioned already I think it would be less fun.

I quite like handing over the enevelope full of dosh; enhances the naughty secrecy of the whole thing

Somehow tapping my number into a chip and pin machine at the outset doesn't really do it for me.

I'd feel as though I were at the local supermarket.

I wonder if the girls would give out 'points' like Asda?:D

My answer, Helen, is a qualified "yes" to both questions. The qualifications are:

I would only do it with an escort where I was confident of her probity and/or knew her. Revealing your true name may be a step too far for some, but those who do overnights or use hotels reveal their names already. As to the paper trail, I'm assuming it would be recorded a bit subtler than, say, "Foxy Tinkerbelle" (or worse! :D)

The main problem I see is that I'm guessing that with the current use of chip and pin that you are talking about advance payment, or would the escort carry a remote terminal with her?! :D I'm sure advance payment would be a bridge too far for some.

In the case of an agency, it certainly would have to be reputable and, with very few exceptions, I'd be unlikely to do it for a first-time.

I go along with Calynx on giving a qualified 'yes' to this, but I share most of his reservations, especially about first encounters (unless the person is well-established). And crossing that 'bridge too far': with some ladies I will arrange advance payments to avoid them (or me) travelling with a lot of cash, but again this is only when mutual trust has built up.

Actually, with wireless card-readers 'talking' to phones or computers the whole CC bit has become much more feasible.

Its certainly handy when an hour becomes an overnight. :):D :D

But trust is the key factor and as the girls know it only goes so far.

How many girls would accept an envelope left on the side uncounted. Or even payment at the end of the night.

The only time I used a card was in an emergency (an hour turning into a night) and in a club of some substance. Not a risk I would wish to repeat.

So the answer is no.

From the ladies point of view - there is a risk of chargeback too and with a 'service' you are unlikely to be able to defend it. I've spoken to one indie who started offering card payment last year who hasn't had any problems - but she uses a form they have to sign to say they received the service. An agent who has been in the business many years says they have nothing but problems. Quite often chaps just tell their card issuer they did not authorise/don't recognise the payment. These are customer not present transactions so probably easier to claim such a thing as CHIP & PIN is not involved.

I was going to use a card with an establishment till they told me they charged 10% for the privilege of using it. Off was the second of the two words i immediately said to them before putting the phone down.

I certainly wouldnt pay over the phone in advance to anyone in this business, too risky in my view.

I would consider this method with an Indie i know and believe i can trust assuming its in the room immediately before the punt.:D

Some agents say the payment has to have been authorised before they will book your chosen Escort. Could see guys getting to the appointment and the card being refused, would cause a bit of discord for all concerned.

What would be your reaction, Smiths, if 6 months later the lady was being investigated by H.M. Customs & Excise due to tax problems, or even the Police, in connection with current legislation. Would you find the prospect of a knock on the door disconcerting ? Surely a credit card puts you in a certain place, at a certain time, with a certain person, and the proof has been provided by yourself.

Yes, I see you can now get a small card swiper and printer to use with your Bluetooth!

In fact, my earlier post was in error, as chip and pin would preclude advance payment, and so it'd have to be done "on the job" so to speak.

I would firstly get my solicitor also a good friend who like most people i know, knows i punt to represent me and wouldnt be saying anything till he advises me.

In this scenario i dont think i have much to worry about, its her they are after, but of course under the new law if plod found evidence of any coercion i would be in the brown stuff, so i wouldnt be wanting to use this method till i see how the law pans out.:D

I have to say that I would never in a million years consider using my card in some of the parlours locally to me.

Sadly a fair proportion of the girls have drug problems (or are associated with boyfriends with similar problems) and I know that for some of them card fraud and other types of fraud is not uncommon.

According to the local newspaper workers at my local petrol station were cloning cards and I am fairly sure that they used mine. I only pay cash now at that station. That is another reason why I would never use a card at a parlour.

I still cannot see the advantage. If the punt is in an area where carrying cash is aproblem, I won't punt there. If the woman is fabulous and offers an extra hour, betcha she knows where every single ATM machine is around her flat. My card does that profile spending thing and I dread a call, picked up by mrs L, from them asking about the new numbers coming up regulalry.

And to be honest, I get a real thrill out of using that large sum of money in one go these days.

It helps to have as many options as possible when the itch strikes. CC's especially good for an advance booking, an extended booking, or to show goodwill where 'references' are required.

Cash has to be the only way for me.

Ticking off our card statements is a joint occupation at Pokeyacres. Besides which I'd probably overspend majorly if I let my cards go 'a punting'.

Hmm interesting. Last summer I had someone say they would pay with a business cheque, whilst on the way to a several hour booking (would have been an overnight but I declined for technical reasons). I don't doubt most on here would have refused even though he claimed ladies from a well know site accepted cheques from him (no names though!).

As you can guess I didn't go ahead. A few days later he asked me if he could pay over the phone, direct from a credit card into my paypal account. This would not come from his paypal account but be simply a matter of me using someone elses card details to upload funds to my paypal. It did not require CHIP & PIN just the 3 digits from the back of the card.

When I looked into it I found if the card was stolen, cloned or the owner disputed the payment I would have no recourse as it would be a straight 'gift' and as I'm not selling 'goods' paypal would not protect me.

I'm afraid in that instance I don't think a CC transaction is a guarantee of anything.

Still to hear of any ladies who have accepted either business cheques or uploaded payments in this way (and I don't mean from someone elses paypal account it's you putting in someone elses card details to put funds in your account). The site mentioned was NA.

I would never pay for a punt in advance of the day by any payment method, so many things could go wrong that means the punt never happens, you or the lady could get ill or have an accident, or all number of other things. Getting the money back might not be an easy task.

I dont punt in the same circles as you as i have never needed a reference to punt.:D

If you pay by plastic and you have a rubbish punt, does the Visa Insurance cover the punt? And get a full refund. :D:rolleyes::D

Never.

Girls will lose Clients if they ask for Credit Card payments.

Cash is King and Anonymous.
