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. 

Primary Payment Methods:

  • Stripe: A service that 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 transactions.
  • Cash on delivery or C.O.D.: Allows customers to skip paying until you physically deliver a customer's product to them in person.
