SANTA MONICA, Calif. — ePassporte told its clients Monday night that it has closed shop.

In a Dear ePassporte Account Holders letter, the credit card processor said it must close its doors due to a “lack of revenue and circumstances beyond our control.”

“Effective immediately, the call center, ePassporte's sales and marketing team and risk management staff will no longer be available. A small group will remain to organize wallet requests and help disburse funds.

“On the ePassporte website, in the near future, wallet holders will be provided further information on what is needed to obtain your funds. This will mainly be a process to protect wallet holder funds from fraud.

"We expect this will be a simplified process, and as we receive the necessary information, our small remaining staff will process requests as quickly as they can. Please direct your wallet questions, concerns and requests to walletrequest@ePassporte.com.

“For those of you with funds on your Visa accounts, we are informed that St. Kitts Bank is working on a plan to provide everyone with full access to their funds through their Visa Electron Cards or by bank wire transfers and will inform you accordingly.

"We appreciate your support for the ePassporte program over the past seven years and deeply regret we must close our doors at this difficult time."

XBIZ will add additional details and commentary to this story as they become available.
