A Client is not allowed to use Confidia to accept or process payments connected with the following businesses and business activities:

  • Bitcoins, other cryptocurrencies and tokens are not allowed because their value sharply fluctuates, and so they are difficult to regulate.

  • Drugs, medical marijuana, cannabis seeds, drug paraphernalia
  • Illegal substances and products
  • Human organs and weapons
  • Counterfeit products and replicas
  • Unauthorized copyright media and software
  • Clients involved with bestiality, rape, hate, violence, or incest

  • Medical consultation
  • HCG weight loss products
  • Steroids
  • Cyberlockers
  • Unlicensed lottery, Gaming and online Casinos
  • Unlicensed IPTV

Some Clients are too troublesome to work with because of very high dispute and chargeback rates. Sometimes customers need to wait too long for a service/product to be delivered. In some other cases, a product/service could not be delivered at all due to unforeseen circumstances. Considerable customer dissatisfaction makes such businesses prohibited:

  • Get rich schemes
  • Ticket brokers
  • Timeshares
  • Precious metals/materials
  • Delayed delivery Clients


Some industries are more liable to fraud than others. That is why licensed and regulated financial institutions are not allowed to accept the following companies to prevent any criminal activity and money laundering:

  • Penny auctions
