With several years worth of experience designing and developing online eCommerce applications we’ve had the chance to try out quite a wide variety of options for accepting payments online. There are some people who may be tied to an existing payment processor since it’s what they use at their EPOS terminals and there are others who are new to taking payments and are starting out from scratch.
With so many options available it can be quite difficult deciding which one is best for you. For existing businesses with large turnovers it may be possible to negotiate your fee structure with a third party payment processor however for the majority of businesses this isn’t an option. With so many out there how do you know which is the one for you?
The three most common payment options we work with include PayPal, Stripe and WorldPay. Each of these allow you to accept payments via your website or application with ease and provide relatively straight forward integration options. Whether you’d like to capture the card details yourself or let them do the heavy lifting, each of these payment processors comes highly recommended by us and should definitely be considered when weighing up your options.
