Accepting payments on your website has gotten easier in recent years. A merchant banking account whilst useful for larger businesses is no longer a necessity for processing payments from debit and credit cards for small businesses.
If you have a website that you would like to start selling your goods or services on, then you need an online payments solution. This has gotten easier with the arrival of services such as Stripe, Worldpay and other similar services.
Firstly you will need an SSL certificate installed on your website. You can then implement an online payments solution.
There are several options when selling products or services, some of these are outlined below;
- Shopping Cart software – this allows websites to sell products online. There are several cost-effective methods of doing this. Applications such as WooCommerce allow an easy integration of shopping cart software with a website and just needs to be configured correctly.
- Membership sites allow website owners to commercialise a website on the basis of added functionality for paid members.
- Simpler methods for the sale of services (such as classes or grinds) or smaller range of products can also be set up
