A client of mine had the same problem when we tried to set up subscription-based content on a website. Natwest were the bank in this case so it seems to be a pretty general policy. In the end we went with WorldPAy, which was hardly ideal, but we got there in the end. Many people suggest going to Barclays as they seem to be the most sympathetic bank towards web-based businesses.
