I think Paypal would be the best payment option since it is very simple to make an account and to verify as well. Most company or employers directly pay to Paypal for a a variety of reasons. A company which has a Paypal method signifies that it is a stable and well paying for my own opinion. Paypal has a good reputation over the other payment methods, they are already in the business for how many years. It is quite amazing since it processed immediately your money in the very short period of time compared to others that it takes time for your money to be transferred into your account. I really love Paypal since it has a good customer service among its clients, they immediately respond to your queries in the soonest time and making your experience in the best possible ways.

Hello all,

I was just wondering what are your preferred payment methods? I personally have quite a few to attract a wider audience aswell as have other means of payments. The ones i currently use are:

BitPay, PayPal, Stripe, Perfect Money and Payza. I am also currently looking into GoCardless which seems very interesting

What about you guys and girls?

Regards,
Adam
My preferred payment method currently is PayPal. Am from Kenya and PayPal really works well in Kenya since I just link it with my bank account and I can make my transactions easy. Other modes that I use id Mpesa. It is a mobile money service offered by one of the Mobile phone network service providers called Safaricom. When you get to Kenya, be sure to have this service because it will help you do your transactions easy around Kenya and neighboring countries.

I'm using PayPal, because I think it is easier for me to manage, since I am not from US. I would also like to try other payment system for better option, but with PayPal, I can link it with the prepaid credit card that I am using in my country.

Hello!

If only allowed, I would prefer to pay any purchase in cash or cheque. It is more convenient and free of hassle transactions. Although many mode of payments and receiving money is available nowadays, I would still prefer the former. Like if I purchase something through online, I prefer those with options to pay in COD or Cash On Delivery. One advantage also is that you can be sure to receive the actual payment. Other modes of payment like Paypal or credit cards would require you a certain amount as payment charge. Also payment made using a bank cheque is like paying cash, but it might be not favorable to those who will be receiving the cheque since you might need to wait for the cheque to be cleared in few days time.

Paypal has always been my preference. I don't know about the others but here in our country especially when you work online as freelancer, paypal is the best payment method for you. You can also easily link paypal to some debits here in country wherein the balance transfer is real time. That is why I have always trusted paypal more than other methods. Besides, paypal is the required payment method by most of the site earning points.

The one and only payment method I use is Paypal. I don't know, maybe because it when I registered to it, it was easy and fast. With only limited requirements other than getting ti verified. And up until now, I never encountered any negative experience with my PayPAl account.

I think the most popular is Paypal. It is the most trusted payment online methods. Aside from being a user friendly it's also secured. Payments online are very scary especially when it involves money so you better choose that has strongest security method because it's your money is at stake. Try to read testimonials first or watch on Youtube for you to be able to choose what kind of payment methods you're going to use. Don't mind about the service charge, as long as your money is safe you won't mind the fee at all.

I prefer venmo but most people prefer paypal. Thus, I made a paypal account just so I can accommodate to what most people use! I think paypal is most efficient.

Methods used for payments

I use several methods of payment but it depends on my purchases as well as the location I am making the transaction. I use a prepaid visa, Pay pal, Cash, credit card. If I am paying bills I use my prepaid card, I have a bank account but use a prepaid account. On a Prepaid card your money goes on the card directly, you can then pay from your card. In person in most cases cash is my go to. Then pay Pal is something I use for online, but sometimes I will use a the prepaid to not have to switch money from card to card.

In my opinion, 90% of shopper use PayPal. The rest either use cryptocurrencies or a credit card (which PayPal can process anyway).
I have not found any reason to use anything else.
As for a crypto processor, you can use a few like Bitpay or coinpayment or coingate.

I also prefer using PayPal as I consider it more convenient and trustworthy. Just one advice to anyone who collects and stores customers personal data or credit card details - if GDPR applies to your business, try to make everything in compliance with the law, as it will soon come into force.

I prefer PayPal than any other payment methods, PayPal is a trusted mode of payment when it comes to online jobs. I love how PayPal protects my information and also helps me in receiving payments with my online job.

As of right now, PayPal.
I use PayPal for most of my paying so I demand to receive payments to PayPal, too.
It is fast, secure and reliable and I can access to it easily.
I do not have to store the money since I can choose to transfer it to credit card.
When it comes down to higher payments, it would be WU, but a sender would have to pay at least 50% of the fee.

I am also using Paypal because even though I don't have any credit card or debit card to link in it I still have other ways to spend my money by purchasing items online and use my Paypal account and balance to pay for it. I am using Paypal to receive and process the payments of my part time online jobs.

That is the same reason for me, too.
I do not own any credit cards, neither debit ones and the only way to get paid online is trough PayPal.
Do you know any other alternatives that you can open without having the need to have a credit card or debit card ?
I haven't heard for any besides PayPal.
Another problem that I have is that in my country we can only send money but not receive it.My fiancee and I have a same paypal account that we both use, while she is in the USA and I am in Montenegro.

I appreciate PayPal as I live in Barbados and I am able to work in USA hosting. Our country agreement with PayPal requires 30 days hold on purchase made online but allows funds sent to be transferred right away. Above is a list of all PayPal approved countries.

My favorite is PayPal. I have used Stripe, but I really didn't care so much for it. Customer support always took forever to get back to me.

I prefer PayPal as a method of payment as my first choice. Since I started using PayPal I think I'm doing more shopping online because I'm not using my credit card number directly. PayPal uses different types of protection as email confirmations, PayPal security key (for stronger security of your account), just to mention a couple of ways. I really feel secure using PayPal.
Sometimes PayPal is not accepted in certain websites, or places, then I have to opt for my second option which is cash, if I can use it, if not it has to be Credit Card. What I always do is double check my statements for security reasons, just to be sure everything looks ok.

Paypal.Always.
Easy, clean, fast, never had a problem with it.
I never understood why people isn't getting more and more people to use it since it is an awesome way of paying.
