  • Card payments on websites

    I have my own web site, but only have paypal set up. I don't really get any orders from my web site and thought if I set it up to take card payments this might help me get some orders.

    I need to look into this further, but has anyone got card payments on there websites and if so, does it cost much? and how would I go about finding a good deal?

    Any advice would be appriciated.

    I use google checkout to take payments on my website.Things can be added to a cart and then poeple pay at the end.

    However I have also been looking at Barclays EPDQ on there website as it very cheap compared to most and they are having an offer on at the moment that there is no set up charges. I cant remeber the charges but they are less than google and paypal and the minimum you have to pay each month is £10

      Hi Susan

      I use PayPal on my website as it is easily integrated into the various shopping carts but visitors/buyers can still pay by credit or debit card as there is a link through from the PayPal page if you don't have an account with them.

      If this isn't appearing on your site, log in to your PayPal account, go to Profile then Website Payment Preferences and make sure the 'PayPal Account Optional' is selected as 'On' (scroll down the page a bit to find this - it is near the end of this form). Once this is selected, you should find that you can accept payments using any cards or PayPal. If you go to my website www.studiocrafts.net and click on the 'Online Shop' link, I have a full explanation for visitors so that they can find this link (it unfortunately can be missed so some sort of explanation will probably help you to make sure you don't miss any orders).

      I hope this helps.

        I also only have PayPal on my website. I don't find it's putting people off at all.

        It's really easy to set up, it's free apart from the transcation charges, and it's pretty safe too. You don't need to worry about your own site security as PayPal are handling the transactions.

        If you aren't getting any orders, it could be more to do with visitor numbers and site promotion rather than payment options - might be worth looking into?

        Good luck!

          I use PayPal & Google Checkout. I also accept cheques and postal orders but I would say most sales come through PayPal.

            Thanks for that, I've put this on my web site now, so people can see that they can pay by credit card as well. And I have lowered my prices a bit to see if this makes a difference.

              SagePay (formerly protx) is very popular as a payment provider on websites, but you need to get a merchant account. There's also Worldpay but they're more expensive.

              Avoid Nochex like the plague.
