Knowing what the options are for accepting online payments is made easy with this website. There three basic types of payment options that anyone with an online store can look at when receiving payments. Although there are a few other payment systems around (like Noca and eGold) which are unusual and unique in their offering, the following three methods are the main ways for businesses to receive payments online.
1. Accepting Payments through your own Online Merchant Account (can accept basically all credit cards). You need to also have a gateway provider if you choose this method.
2. Have a 3rd Party Processor accept credit card payments on your behalf party. PayPal, Alertpay and 2Checkout is an example of a 3rd Party Processor.
3. Accepting payment via mobile phone, preferably through SMS. DaoPay, SMS Kambi and Boku are examples of mobile payment companies.
