"PayPal alternatives for accepting payment from clients?"


  

          

Seems like there is still a growing backlash against PayPal for reasons I still don't understand.....I've been happy with them on the consumer side.....and even on Ebay when i've sold things...

Wondering if the beef is all hype, or if there's legit concern and better options when deciding which electronics payment vendor to select for a business.

Any advice and input would be greatly appreciated.

*I tried that Organix board for this...but that place is deader than Bin's hustle board was....*

pretty much anyone can accept credit cards on their phone through sites like square. you just put a little device on top of your cell phone. i think both my bank and etsy offer it at this point, they're so widespread.

cash and check are def. suitable options. But as someone that looks down on vendors/businesses that don't offer a very mainstream and convenient payment option...I don't want to be that guy.

If it's you selling like $1600 of stuff a month then Google Wallet, Amazon Payments, or Stripe would work.

I work at a place where we do multi-millions a month and we recently left PayPal for another vendor and we hate it.

PayPal stinks, but I think the other places stink even more.

Paypal is easy because it's big and most people have access but the same could be said about Google. Transfers are fast and they give you a free card to use in case that's handy for you.

If you want your money very very fast, without any dumb shit, you should go with BalancedPayments.com. We built our SAAS platform on top of this, and it is easily the best payment processor I've ever dealt with.

Our business account is with chase, and if I charge a card, the money is in the account when work starts the next day. Also, they have same day pay outs to Wells Fargo accounts. Meaning yes, if you charge a card, and disperse the funds to a wells fargo account, it will be available in your account the same day.

Fantastic API btw
