All this depends with the size of your business. So if you are a small business or a startup freelance entrepreneur who sell products and services online, you need an easy solution.
If you look at this online business blog and have already checked some of the digital products I sell, you can see I have incorporate Paypal, e-Junkie and Clickbank to easily accept payments online.
Some online sellers set up a vendor account that provide payment gateways to facilitate shopping cart check out, secure payment processing , accepting credit cards and transfer of funds between the client’s and merchant’s accounts. When I was working at Aitken Spence Hotels Management in Sri Lanka, we used them all.
Accepting payments online should be easy for you as well as your customer. If the payment processing system takes time or it fails, you are more likely to lose your customers.
Specially if you are selling digital products online, that is how you get paid for selling online! Or you can call it “Making Money Online”
When I first got started I had no idea about how to accept payments online, with trial and error I figured this out and now everything is automated. One thing I would like to point out is, there is a lot of money to be made online and some people have no idea on what is going on. Today during lunch time I was talking one of my friends and when I mentioned I had one of the biggest pay days online, he had no idea if it was for real. Even trying to explain him about the potential would have been a waste. Last week, I had to basically log to my online account and show this friend that it is really happening and I’m getting paid from online work and selling my digital products.
So let’s look at my top 3 ways to accept payments online…”
I will show you that what makes some payment solutions better than others.
PayPal Payment Standard – PayPal is my first ever choice when I was first starting to earn online. Still I get paid from countries like Sri Lanka, India and Maldives through my PayPal Account. This is the easiest to set and the only drawback is they cut a percentage which I think is bit too much.
e-Junkie – If you’re going to sell your first eBook, this is the best solution for a fully automated delivery. No hassle after setting it up. I first got started with e-Junkie after reading Pat Flynn’s story at Smart Passive Income. How he used e-Junkie to sell his first eBook.
