Tips and Hints

Accepting Payments Online

I’ve performed hours of research on how to accept payments online. It comes down to the context of those payments and the volume.

If you are selling your own information product and want to put it into the hands of affiliates to sell it for you, ClickBank is the hands down winner. They do everything, including collecting the payment for you.

If you’re looking for something simple, PayPal has a great system, even though I find it to be overpriced, especially if you anticipate a higher volume. PayPal is a great place to start until you build your volume then switch to a different provider.

For higher volumes 2CheckOut is the least expensive per transaction. They offer credit/debit/EBT card processing, electronic check conversion, loyalty and gift card programs, fraud management services, and various other innovative value-added merchant business services.

If you have more complex needs you might want to hook up with an ecommerce / shopping cart platform that offers integration with a payment provider. Here is the list of them.
