Paypal is the best and popular platform for ecommerce. However you need to check if your customers can by paypal or is there any other method they prefer than this. Also best way to do this is check what your competitor in business doing.

Yep. Paypal is a popular payment gateway and really should be used to accept payments. That's how most of my clients pay. We also started using stripe for credit card payments and that has really helped increase signups.

Will have to look into google checkout too.

PayPal without a doubt is the most widely known and secure. The fee's are a bit high though.

Paypal seems to be a globally accepted form of payment and convenient for both parties (customer - provider) on top of that credit cards are normal methods. There are cases however, where only paypal is accepted!

I agree with most here that PayPal is a necessity if you are serious about eCommerce of any kind.

But for Credit Card processing, there is no better option than Stripe.
https://stripe.com/

2CheckOut is a joke in comparison to Stripe... and I was a 2CO user for years.

We've stayed away from PayPal in the past because their fees are higher & they put a 90 day hold on your money.

Around the start of this year we started offering more straight forward products vs custom solutions / managed services, so we're going start offering it as an option.

Anyone know how to get around their 90 day hold?

PayPal by far the best hosting solution I think for many reasons.

But I think if you just want to accept cards on your website then MoneyBookers is good but I do want to look at Stripe in the near future as it looks promising.

PayPal is the best. Almost anyone who makes purchases has a PayPal account or at least a credit card they can easily use too. It's secure way to get paid and also customers know that. The fees are also fair.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THAT ANNOUNCEMENT THAT SAYS YOU CANNOT SELL WEB HOSTING WITH GOOGLE WALLET. AS A MATTER OF FACT WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR WALLET QUITE THE OPPOSITE IS INDICATED.

I HAVE GIVEN YOU AMPLE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW US WHERE GOOGLE SAYS SELLING WEB HOSTING IS PROHIBITED. YOU HAVE SHOWN US NOTHING WHILE DISPARAGING ME.


FOR THE HONEST AND INTERESTED READER, I AGAIN POST MY DIRECT FINDINGS:

According to Alice at Google (1 855 WALLET6) when you sign up here: http://www.google.com/wallet/business/ you'll be taken to the API info page. On that page select Digital Goods. Fill out form and select Internet, Network, and Digital Media -- don't select Services -- as Primary product type. You can now sell web hosting and domain registration

I've included an attachment showing how a web host should sign up.

If "Internet Products" does not include hosting and domain reg, I don't know what is. There is nothing in the TOS about web hosting. There is nothing in the manuals about web hosting. There is absolutely nothing I can find in any Google documentation that would prevent a merchant from selling web hosting. Maybe there is somewhere, but no one can find it for me.

I can now sell web hosting from Android devices

THE END
