Being able to accept payments online creates breeze-work out of running a business by allowing a computer to automate most of the process. Ideally, when managing your eCommerce store, you have three different options for accepting payment: accepting all major credit cards with Stripe, accepting credits cards and transfers transactions with PayPal, or cash on delivery (C.O.D.).
 
In this article, we will discuss the differences between these methods, as well as how you can add them to your store. 

Different Payment Methods:

  • Stripe: is a service which allows online stores to process major credit cards
  • PayPal: sends funds from a customer's account into your store's PayPal account, but can also let you accept credit card transaction
  • Cash on delivery or C.O.D.: allows customers to skip paying until you physically deliver a customer's product to them in person

To set up one of the payment providers:

  1. Select the Store tab in the left-hand menu from your main account dashboard then Manage Products and Orders.

  3. When you set up a payment option, you can create a new account by entering your email, or you can link to an existing account. Once activated, you can manage payment options by clicking the Edit on your Payment Providers screen.

    Note: Once you sell your first product via PayPal, you will receive an email to set up your account through your new PayPal portal.

Once you've selected a payment provider, customers will be able to add products to their shopping cart and choose the option that you've chosen, either PayPal or Stripe, and check out just like they're used to when shopping online.
