Euro € transactions for UK company…

We are a UK company, we bank with HSBC and will offer our customers the choice of Protx and Google checkout for UK Sterling £ transactions.

For Euro € customers we want to process natively in € and for the funds to go into our HSBC € account (so they don’t get hit by their banks)… we had intended to do this manually but it sounds like storing cvv numbers is frowned on…

HSBC charge an incredible 3% for € transactions so Protx style transactions are out of the question.. What we really need is something like the Google model where they take a low % and then do a FOC transfer into our € account.

What € transactions mechanisms do people recommend? Or does everyone just offer € prices but then process in £?

Thanks in advance!
