Our client wants to create online shop to sell goods worldwide.

Inside CIS there are many payment service providers (WebMoney or Yandex-money for example) which are useless outside. Are there any payment service providers (like PayPal) which work with Ukraine (part of former USSR)?

PayPal wouldn't work because they don't allow CIS residents to withdraw money.

Is there a reason you can't use more than one processor? – MrChrister Mar 1 '10 at 4:13
@MrChrister. There is absolutely no problems with using more than one payment service provider, but for now I don't know any trustworthy payment service provider which works well with 'other countries'. – Alex Bolotov Mar 6 '10 at 22:05

Take a look at Google Checkout but keep in mind that there is a different list of countries that they support as sellers vs. buyers. The buyer list is much more comprehensive, and I believe covers CIS (Russia, Ukraine and Belarus) while the seller list does not (yet) which means that your client will need to create a U.S. or U.K. based entity to accept payments, however they will be able to accept payments from buyers both in CIS and internationally.
