    * Which methods of payment are most appealing to clients.

    Hello,

    Which methods of payment are most appealing to clients?

    Given the downfall of Liberty Reserve and now Payza currently not being able to serve US clients, I wanted to add more payment options besides having PayPal and credit cards.

    In my opinion , customer when doing online transaction wants its be secure so you already have paypal and credit card which has some kind of insurance in it.
    Coming back to your point , its more important to understand your client base. If you have more clients coming from specific country / continent then you should focus on adding their preferred payment gateways

    The best options are Credit Card, PayPal, Money Order, Check, and Bank Wire Transfer. A lot of people are looking at Bitcoin, but most larger companies don't accept this so you might not be able to reuse that currency to pay for your monthly/yearly business expenses.

    We have a small hosting company, too. Most of them pay by Paypal and others with bank transfer.

    It's easy. Use Bitpay.com's service, they even have a pre-built WHMCS module to help you automate bitcoin payments. They allow you to choose your own settlement options. You can choose to store x% amount of every payment as bitcoin and x% amount in any currency you wish (USD, CAD, GBP, etc.) and are paid out to you each day via bank transfer or to your bitcoin wallet if you decide to keep the BTC.

    I think whichever the country is PayPal is the most appealing to the clients.

    I think you would be the best to answer this question, have you ever gotten any inquiries regarding alternative payment methods (other than what you already offer)?

    After LR's failure I think PerfectMoney got most of their customers. So you can add PM + bank wire option. 2CO is a good idea also.

    Agreed, I personally used them in the past when I had my own hosting business and never ever had issues with them. The dramatic decrease in fraud was also a plus.

    FYI I had processed thousands of dollars through 2Checkout weekly and was able to negotiate the rates, so keep that in mind should you be in the same boat.

    Paypal is the most preferred gateway worldwide, but now a days people also like Skrill, Perfect Money and OkPay.

    Please share your secret, a lot of us here have had a terrible experience with them randomly closing accounts and a higher fraud rate (if you process cards yourself you can run the address through AVS, etc, but 2CO accepts 12345 abcde st as a valid address).



    OP: How about things such as Western Union?

    PayPal and Debit/Credit Card seem to be the most popular ones.

    Our clients order of preference is: PayPal, Stripe, Skrill, Bitcoin but that is all we offer. Over the years we have had a few enquires about using WU but on the whole, alternative payment methods is not a question that is asked. We also opened AlertPay, Google Checkout and 2CO accounts but never used them.
