    Question Setting Up Shopping Carts and accepting payments, please help?

    Hello People

    I am in the process of setting a new online Business. I aim to sell computer systems and Hardware to individuals and offer very competitive prices. I currently trade on EBAY and wish to expand.

    I have bought a Template for my business, if I was to set up shopping carts and accept payment via a check out means, who is the most easies and yet least priciest company I can turn for assistance? I do not like Pay Pal or similar companies as the buyer needs to register in order to use hem and 10 out 12 customers would just not bother.

    What would you say would be an easy option in terms of updating the product catalogue and other usage?

    Thanks

    What country are you based in? Are you going to be selling over $1,000 a month?

    You can choose either, that does not matter.

    Have you possibly checked out Worldpay? Not being in the US, your discount rate & transaction rates might be a little higher.

    A few things that you might be required to show:
    • Proof of company registration
    • Proof of residence
    • Copy of ID of signatories
    • Ownership and business structure/ description of the current business model

    Well they are a large company. Every large company you are going to see some bad reviews from. And unfortunately, I would say about 75% of those complaints come from the merchant not reading or understanding the agreement fully.
