Payment Processors

Payment Processors And Credit Card Acceptance

In my Guide To Transaction Charges, I outline why using Paypal as your only payment processing solution is not a good idea. Especially if you are doing any volume of business.

Both Cardstream and Sagepay are great payment gateways, and credit card processors rolled into one, although you'll have to pay a monthly charge for using them.

There are also mobile credit card readers in this section and if that's what you are looking for then try mobile credit readers compared.

WorldPay has the most comprehensive set of credit card processing tools in the UK marketplace.

SumUp Overview SumUp is the leading Mobile Point Of Sale (mPOS) company in Europe.

They currently have a staff of just over 100 people working in more than 20 countries who provide their services to merchants, and they are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. On the face of it Sumup offers the same product and service as...

They currently have over 50,000 customers on their books and are growing quickly in a market where a quick reaction is establishing a lead over traditional staid banking practices. However with that swift of foot marketing movement must come excellent customer support and the early indicators are that it has not been present, although steps have been taken to rectify this with a...

PayPal Overview I've used PayPal as a customer for 16 years and never had a problem. However, the terrible stories of accounts being frozen and funds seized lead me to be wary about recommending PayPal as your payment gateway provider. The fact is that PayPal is a monster company. It is huge. And with big business come lots of complaints. It's inevitable. However for getting payments processed and quickly without any red tape or forms to fill PayPal is seriously good at what it does and since being spun off...

What is interesting about them is that they first launched their fledgeling accounting software “Sage Software” for the Amstrad PCW. This was about the time I got my ZX Spectrum 64.
