Can you explain in details what is the best offshore company that you can incorporate in regards to online business and selling products online, getting payment processor and valid registered office address that I can put on website for my customers to see I'm a valid registered company?


Offshore Agent
This is helpful but I'm confused about what offshore jurisdiction would be best for my online subscription selling business? Can you guide me to the right jurisdiction I have customers from all over the world but have only 1 product that I'm selling.


Corporate Services
Panama offers both Banking and Merchant account for online business. But I have yet to figure out how to get it all connected to each other and where to find any reliable agent in Panama or Lawyer to help me register a company there.
I don't agree with you any longer. For approx 7 months I would but not after all the media covering of Panama.


Offshore Agent
I don't know the costs are higher compare to a Belize (costs only $800) and Seychelles ( costs only $750) and after all the mess with the #panamapapers it seems not to be very secure privacy vise.. but I could be wrong of course.

Thank you for the article Admin, I have read a lot about incorporating business in Panama. But I haven't decided which one I should choose.


New member
I don't think Panama will be used any longer after all the stuff happened there.. but I would like to try it if we can find a company that can provide merchant account for a Panama company

I still love Panama to be one of the first stop when it comes to privacy because when I need a bank account and a way to process credit cards there are many options for normal online biz in Panama. This requires a Panama corp.

Back when I was new to all of this the best I found was you didn't had to pay in any share capital. Years later many EU countries introduced the exact same thing for their local countries. Som only require 1 Euro
