Mt. Gox stopping with Technocash payments, Australia

After loosing OKPay and Dwolla in the United States recently, Mt. Gox is loosing the payment partner Technocash which provided payment methods for Australia. Australians can still deposit money through international wire transfer. They claim to be working on alternatives but it seems to be a new trend to loose payment partners. It is unclear why they have lost so many recently, the statements usually don’t give clear information about the reasons.

Official statement from Mt. Gox

TOKYO – JAPAN – June 4th, 2013 After some deliberation and discussion with Technocash, an Australian service for Mt. Gox customer account funding and withdrawals, it has been decided that our customers in Australia will no longer be able to deposit and withdraw funds in AUD using Technocash starting June 15th, 2013. We are working on alternatives for our Australian customers, but in the meantime please use other available methods such as international wire transfers, which are available in your customer accounts. Withdrawals via Technocash will be processed as long as we possibly can, and we will make our best effort to keep this method available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and look forward to evolving with the vibrant Australian market.
