Accepting Credit Card Payments For Your Business

One of the most intimidating aspects of starting an online business is how to accept payments. There are lots of security concerns, not to mention how do you build a shopping cart? Some sitebuilders may have extensions or plugins to add this functionality, but this may add to your monthly price.

This one one of the biggest concerns for me in starting a business, but I found out it can actually be quite simple. Cue PayPal…


One of the greatest options out there is accepting payments through PayPal. Then you don’t have to worry about handling all the security issues. You will probably pay a small processing fee, about 2.5-3%. They take care of it through their own site and send your customers right back to you.

A few other options are checkout by Amazon, fat free cart, merchantec, shopify, and google wallet.
