Online Payment Solutions for Small Businesses
May 10, 2021
As a small business owner, one way to boost sales is to offer a variety of payment options to enable your customers to pay in whatever way works best for them. Making payment options more convenient for your customers, such as offering online payment options, means that you get paid faster. Providing opportunities for your customers to make their payments online also offers better security and saves everyone time.
There is a range of online payment methods that enable your customers to pay their invoices online in the way that is most convenient for them.
Online credit card payments via your website
One of the easiest ways is to add a payment form to your website and accept online credit card payments via an online payment gateway. Payment is outsourced to an online payment service provider, who hosts the payment form, oversees the payment processing, and securely stores the payment information of your clients for future purchases. This is one of the most popular payment options today for small businesses.
These days, you can do everything on your mobile device, including payments. To accept mobile payments, you need a mobile card reader that plugs into your phone. They work with a mobile app that processes payments from anywhere you are connected.
Click-to-pay via email
Click-to-pay is one of the easiest and most convenient ways for customers to make payments and one of the fastest ways to get paid. Customers click a link in their email to view and pay the invoice online from wherever they are.
e-Check Payments via Direct Transfer
eChecks take the banking information that is on a paper check and have customers enter that information into an online form to send a direct transfer from your customer’s bank account to your account. Payments are transferred directly and the fees associated are often lower than those for credit card payments.
Streamlining the online payment offerings makes payment simple and easy for your customers, and that often translates into higher sales and greater customer loyalty.
