Starting an online business can have many headaches and stresses as you have to take control of so many things such as inventory, customer service, payments, orders and more.
You can remove at least one headache if you implement a simple and functional payment solution. There are a range of companies and platforms that allow your customers to send you payments via credit cards, bank transfers, or echecks.
Amazon Payments is very similar to that of Pay Pal. They are a little smaller than Pay Pal but they have more advantages that appeal to the customers. Customers can go through check out using their Amazon account so they don’t have to input any of their credit card information.
Yahoo Merchant Solutions is another great payment platform you could go with. They accept the traditional credit and debit card payments, but they also team up with Pay Pal to offer a wider range of payment options for your customers.
Authorize.net is the worlds largest gateway payment platform that you could choose for accepting echecks and credit card payments. The payments are accepted right on your website so that the customer does not have to leave your site to make their payment, recently listed on Open Forum.
