How to Accept Card Payments Online

Card payment solutions

 

You’ve spent so much time setting up your eCommerce site. You’ve wrestled with usability and design. You’ve put effort into search engine optimisation and user engagement. And you’ve considered ease of use and responsiveness across a range of browsers… Now it’s time to put some thought into the payment solutions you will be offering your customers, and how you can make sure the checkout process is just as slick and appealing as your online store.

Considerations to keep in mind when adding a card payment solution to your site.

Customers love choice. And while some of your customers will have a credit card, many will only have a debit card with no credit facilities, which may limit their ability to spend. When developing your eCommerce site, make sure you provide your customers with as many payment solutions as possible so that you cater to the full range of shopper needs. Do you offer payment solutions for debit and credit cards? And what about offering a debt-free payment plan that allows your customers to pay for their purchase in instalments – at no additional cost?

Payflex ticks all the boxes

Do payment gateways accept debit and cheque cards?

When considering which eCommerce payment gateway will best suit the needs of your customers, ask yourself whether your payment gateway accepts debit, credit and cheque cards with the Visa or Mastercard logos. The more choice you can offer your shoppers, the better for your top line.
