It’s way too expensive for many small businesses online to accept credit cards.
According to Online Marketing and Home business
With startup fees ranging from $200 to $500, minimum monthly fees of at least $40 to $50, plus per transaction fees and a percentage of sales, most people who want to supplement their income online or test an idea can’t risk that kind of money.
But there is a cheaper solution, Paypal. Clickbank, StormPay and PaySystems are among the most well known companies that will help you collect money from your site. The user will register their credit card at one of these sites and you collect your money using the system. The company mentioned above will be helping the user to secure the payment and help you secure your pay, and it’s both cheap and secure at the same time.
Which company you should choose? Well, it all depends on not just what you are selling but what you prefer. They all have their pros and cons. I believe that you should visit their site and read them carefully. A lot of people have bad things to say about almost anything on the Net, also about these companies. Make up your own opinion first, and then talk to people about them. I have used Paypal, Clickbank and StormPay and have not had any bad experiences so far.
