    Hello

    The best way to receive payments is Paypal. It works fine because is instant payment but you need to have a Bank Account only in authorized countries. In Peru doesn't work. Other choice is Xoom and Money Orders.

    Hey,

    I'm about to open my first online store, and I'm a little doubtful of using PayPal, maybe resistant or reluctant would be better words?

    I don't know why, but I see it as somehow less professional. From my own point of view, I feel better buying from sites where I can go seamlessly from checkout to payment page, with no third party visibly involved.

    Do you think I'm alone in this? Does PayPal work extremely well for you on it's own?

    I'm thinking (as I don't have a Merchant Bank Acc yet) I'll try PayPal for a few months, and then if I find people leaving site at checkout at a high rate I'll invest a little more and pay someone like Sagepay and RBS their fees for a more professional looking service.

    I guess I'm just asking what others here do and if they have great success using just PayPal for their checkout...

    I think it largely depends on your customers, too. It is easier for most people to get a PayPal account than a credit card, especially if they have a bad/weak credit rating.

    If you are going to be selling cheap items or items targeted at a lower income audience, I think you should offer PayPal for sure or you will alienate them.

    If on the other hand, you have confidence in your products and want to look more professional, not having PayPal at all and only accepting credit cards through a trusted merchant account can possible increase your image and trust.

    Unless you have strong feelings either way, I would aim to have both PayPal and other payment processors on your site. Of course, PayPal will be quicker for you to start using, then add other options as time passes.

    I use both Paypal and google checkout on my website.

    I also use Paypal Payments Pro which allows me to accept credit cards on my website without people knowing it's powered by Paypal and the funds just come into my paypal account.

    Have a look at my site, take an item to checkout and see what I mean.

    Thanks guys, I think I'm going to go with PayPal for a quick start up, and then see about upgrading to Pro. Is it possible to do as dropship_voyeur suggests by doing that? I mean upgrading to Pro but still maintaining the visibility of PayPal as an alternative?

    As was wisely suggested, I don't want to turn people away by not clearly accepting payment from a PayPal account!

    I like TSP's implementation of his PayPal Pro.

    Yes, I think you should have no problems offering checkout by standard PayPal and a "hidden" PayPal Payments Pro as an alternative/credit card method. It will be a matter of how much flexibility/control you have over your site's system and may require some customization of your e-commerce platform.

    another good one i haven't seen being mentioned is http://www.cardsave.net they are a payment gateway that set you up with streamline for £50 rather than streamlines £300 fee then you pay them £20 a month for the payment gateway and pay 1.4% per credit card transaction with solo cards ect costing just 35p a transaction.

    There are different processors but those which are compatible with every software and very secured are really very good and useful.
