Earlier this year we started a payment gateway series to help you understand exactly how you can make money, accept money and much more. Really great series if you are just starting out in business. One of the things I would like to touch on today is the mobile payment gateway options you have to grow your business.
Creating a website for your business can be a good amount of work, but when you add a shopping cart aspect to it – it is another level of work. With my first business, I researched for weeks and it was completely overwhelming trying to understand what I needed for my shopping cart. I had to decide which shopping cart was best for me, not an easy task.
Google does it all let’s be honest, what doesn’t Google do? We use it as a verb and yet it is a company. Google as an entity is a powerful company that has changed our world. To think, they aren’t even 20 years old! They are still a teenager in terms of years. Google has launched many ventures in the business world, some have skyrocketed and changed our world and some have failed miserably and have been kicked to the curb.
Google and dealing with consumer’s money has been questionable, you don’t know if they are coming or staying. Let’s break it down even further.
Last week, we started the conversation on payment gateways for your business. We learned there are more than three options for you to use and the basic knowledge of how it works for your business. Today, we are going to focus on the direct payment options that most small businesses do not even realize are out there.
To be honest, I knew I could have a pay direct option on my site, but didn’t know how to incorporate that. We all shop online and let’s be honest, big companies didn’t start integrating Paypal as an option for customers until 2010. That begs to question, what were the big companies using prior to this date? They were using direct pay.
