I am shareit user for 10 years now, but in last 2 months there is many chargebacks and paypal refunds and I dont know why, never been like this in years, also support in shareit in non existing, Today i have received chargeback from an order in january and today is april which is very unusual, so i was thinking to try Avangate, any pros, cons?
I have only used Avangate as a consumer, not as a business, and I found them to be highly disreputable. I think you'll find the same thing with a little research.
I have used Avangate as a seller (of a not so successfull product up to date), and their customer support was perfect, because they answer within the same business day, when I asked for non standard requests, in order to regularize better my fiscal status post-poning some invoices, and they helped me in a professional and impeccable way.
I read regularly this forum, but I never post. But I'm happy of Avangate service, so I take time to answer.
Honestly: they charge "a lot", and if some day solutions like ripple/bitcoin/direct-bank-transfers will be widespread and legal, I will move for sure. I don't like giving free money to resellers, only for the service of moving money, and fiscal safety in case of invoicing to foreign countries. But at least Avangate gave me a good service, when needed. So I don't respect the "status of affair", but I respect the company and trust their customer service.

I have sold thousands of licences through Avangate and have been very happy with their service.
I wouldn't touch any Digital River owned service (such as ShareIt) with someone else's bargpole.

>how do you find Avangate with regard the recent changes in EU VAT regulations? Does their process handle it smoothly?
Completely seemless. I didn't have to do anything.
I don't know if there were any visible changes for the purchaser, but I haven't had any complaints.
And if they implemented it wrong, it will be them that gets prosecuted. ;0)
