More options definitely get you more sales because I have found that some customers actually look for a web host that offers a certain kind of payment option. However, my website currently only offers PayPal, which covers all kinds of credit cards and is the most secure, in my opinion.
Depending on what's being sold, dedicated hosting we offer Paypal, Stripe and BTC for colocation which usually requires a contract because its not month to month we accept money orders and checks and occasionally btc this is because they require security deposits and what not but if we did offer paypal, stripe and btc for colocation orders I believe we would receive more sales but its a security thing. Having multiple payment options online could become a hassle but its good to have if you have the customer base for them all.
1. PayPal primarily (Only payment publicaly listed)
2. Email Money Transfer for Canadian clients and trusted long term customers
3. Checks/Cheques for trusted long term clients
4. Cash for local clients
5. Good stories and bakes goods (an add on for #4) :dans2:
We offer Paypal, Bitcoin, Domestic Payment options
There are countries which still don't support paypal or some popular payment aggregators, But has access to bitcoins easily.
most users don't has credit cards, which comes handy while processing cross-currency transactions. They have to do plenty efforts to get just balance in there paypal wallet.
So yes, To ease customers trouble we can tie up with most suitable payment aggregators!
More payment options will not help you to get more sales but it will ensure that you don't lose the earned sale. For Indian clients, we offer credit card, debit card, net banking, cash deposit and cheque payment. For international clients, we provide PayPal and bank transfer option.
In my opinion, especially with smaller providers, from a business standpoint, it is best to condense payment processing options as much as possible. While offering Paypal, CC Processing, BTC, Money Orders, etc is great for a larger business, this can become messy and makes things slip through the cracks easier. Also, consider that with every payment gateway you add to your system, you are potentially opening up the possibility for new exploits. Systems such as WHMCS are very secure nowadays in their native state, but many addons can quickly corrupt the systems authenticity.
PayPal is currently the only payment method listed on our site. We do have Stripe but PayPal is by far the most utilized method used. For local clients we do accept cash and check payments, and in-person credit card payments via Square. Check payments are also accepted from a few non-local, long term clients but wouldn't be offered to any unknown new clients due to check fraud in the past.
More options are always helping with sales. The main ones that I'm using are PayPal, some kind of credit card payments and local banks gateway. When it's not possible to pay with those, then wire transfer is also possible.
We have Paypal, Card, Bank Transfer, Webmoney, Bitcoin, Skrill. For local customers there are also payment terminals.
Paypal of course is the most popular, but also Card and Bitcoin are.
We are thinking about adding Perfect Money but are not sure. What are your experiences with this system? Do a lot of your customers use it? How are the commissions?
We offer Paypal, Credit Card and Bitcoin. I've thought about adding Payza however they can't seem to read the pages linked to when supplying them with all the docs needed and Skrill however the rep emailed saying he would send another email with details but he failed to do so.
