Credit Card Payment Processors

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.

Square UK Card Reader Review The Square brand has quickly grown from a single mobile card reader and now has many features for a small business to take advantage of including a unique POS (point of sale) system, Square for restaurants and Square eCommerce. Square has an unrivalled feature set, easy to understand pricing (transaction fees are 1.75%) and quick setup which outmanoeuvres some of the more established companies in this marketplace. Established in 2009 by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, Square.com (formerly Squareup) is easily the most advanced mobile credit card processing system...

Payoneer Overview Based in New York City, USA, Payoneer was founded in 2005 with the idea of making online payments simple and convenient. The company has over four million users globally and can process transactions in over 150 currencies. Payoneer inhabits a niche within the online payments industry in that it offers neither a merchant account nor payment processing services for eCommerce merchants, preferring instead to concentrate on facilitating direct consumer to consumer payments with a focus on making international payments easier. Whilst eCommerce transactions may not be Payoneer's strong...

WorldPay has the most comprehensive set of credit card processing tools in the UK marketplace. From its early beginnings in 1989 through to its modern day incarnation, WorldPay has been bought, sold and in turn, made its astute acquisitions to become one of the market leaders in credit card processing technology. In 2002 NatWest Streamline and WorldPay combined although they continued to operate as separate brands. Streamline has now disappeared from the branding and the company currently runs purely as WorldPay. The key date in their timeline was 2010 when they were bought...

Paymentsense Overview Established in 2010 Paymentsense is the UK branch of Internet Merchant Account provider First Data, one of the largest payment gateway processors in the world. They currently have over 50,000 customers on their books and are quickly growing in a market where a swift 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...

Sage Pay Overview Sage Group PLC is one of the UK's software success stories, and they are the third largest supplier of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software in the world, with offices in 24 countries and listed on the London Stock Exchange. 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. The ZX Spectrum 64 was an 8 bit PC......
