Make Sure You Qualify to Use Their Services
Not all payment processing companies accept users from around the world. Some of them also have restrictions on the types of items that you can sell through your blog.
Examine the Company’s Reputation
There are some major players in the online payments business, such as PayPal, Google Checkout and Amazon Payments, which have been around for years and have a solid reputation. There are also a few other, smaller companies out there. Take a look at how long the company has been in business. Also, do a quick search to find some reviews of the company you want to deal with, which is an excellent way of hearing from other people who have used their services. Discussion forums aimed at webmasters and online marketers are also very good sources of information on various companies to process your payments.
Look at Their Fee Structure
Some companies may charge you a monthly fee, which applies even if you didn’t make any transactions. Others only charge you when you receive payments from customers. Be sure to take into consideration all applicable fees. Some companies may charge you additional fees, such as charges for withdrawing money to your bank account, or to convert your funds into another currency.
