Outside of Europe I'd propose an idea I've been mulling over for quite some time. Use Bitcoin. The transfers will go through immediately, and while it's somewhat of a hassle for the buyer to first acquire the bitcoin, we in the retro movement don't do that many spur of the moment purchases and we might be willing to put up with that? (I'm exaggerating the hassle though, today it's quite easy). On the receiving side Chris could either choose to stay in Bitcoin denomination or partner with a company that would directly convert the bitcoin into GBP and transfer to his regular bank account.
No one can censor Bitcoin.

You also need to cash-out a lot if you want to reduce risk of having all your BC crash to a total value of 50 cents when the next big exchange goes belly-up (or you can gamble and keep your BC inventory, it may go up in value.... but this isn't what currency should really be used for)

Store is live as of about a hour ago!
Already taken first payment, think some people been sat clicking refresh on the store page 24/7
According to my site logs 80% of traffic uses Chrome, So my webstore was created using it. I have however done some limited testing with Opera 40, FireFox 43 (on nope its 48 now, seesh!) , Internet Exploder 11.
I can't predict how other browsers will work, and likely vastly lesser versions of browsers will most likely fail. But lifes to short....
Should something crap out, send me a screenshot and I will look into it. I've plasted in a load of error checking already, But its nothing critical to stores operation.. There might be some tiny hiccups, but will ircon those out another time. So rather than keeping people waiting anymore, its gone live
