I strongly believe that the most secure method of payment is Paypal.

When going US I would use credit cards. Creditcards have a high penetration and with new techniques that triangulate all the customer's data most fakers will get blocked. If you just choose the right provider, take some time to configure the settings and active the right services nothing will beat a credit card.

In Europe it is much harder to choose for "one" system. All countries have different systems and there is not one "payment method" with a majority share. Payment through wiring money seems the universal method but has its downsides. In europe I would go for multiple options ranging from paypal, wired transfer and creditcards.

2Checkout is better then PayPal, they use fraud scanner and also sometimes they do a phone verification.

Don't use PayPal directly otherwise they are monkey and they will play with your account(Freez/Defrez/Ban/)

Currently using 2Checkout to accept credit card payments directly and PayPal as well (for those that prefer it over 2CO). We also use AlertPay for a very, very small percentage of clients but I'm actually thinking about dropping them due to all of their problems with credit card processing...

I'd have to agree with this reply. Throw a 3rd party vendor in the mix and use there support if you have any issues.

PayPal and GoogleCheckout are both pretty good.

We're only using Paypal at the moment but we're adding 2CheckOut and maybe Google Checkout in the near future.

I'm sort of surprised with all the love that PayPal is getting in this thread, and no one is bringing up the many advantages of utilizing a payment gateway.

A service like PayPal requires you to send customers off your site, disputes are geared to favor the customer (including freezing the funds in question), the lengths of time it takes to receive your payments, and the other restrictions that they enforce.

I should have worded my comment differently. Of course, the processing will occur offsite. What I meant to infer was that it will appear to be a seamless transaction for your customers if you use a payment gateway.

Unlike using PayPal where a customer could easily abandon the transaction when they get sent to their site to complete the payment. It looks substanially more professional to use a payment gateway than PayPal, unless you're selling your goods or services on an auction site.

I only accept PayPal and UK bank transfer. Only had it used once for a yearly payment. But you have to wait for the transfer to happen tho before you can accept an order.

Its just as easy to abandon the transaction when they dont get sent to a site that looks a bit different. I agree on the professional part, but when your clients choose their payment gateway to be "Paypal" they know what to expect when they click on the pay button.

I think most customers would prefer paying via an external gateway - then the know there card details are not gonna be stored anywhere or logged.

My point is that not all clients are going to be thrilled to be paying you with PayPal. Some still associate it as that 'eBay payment service' while others may think that they still have to sign up for a PayPal account to pay you.

A true payment gateway allows you to accept payments almost seamlessly and in seconds. Sending your customers to PayPal just adds yet another step where a sale could be abandoned.

Why take that chance and continue to deal with PayPal's higher fees, lack of customer service, and slow payment process? Why should you have to wait 3-4 business days to get paid? And even then, you still always need to request that your money be transferred to you? That doesn't happen with a payment gateway.
