#Change Your Plastic Options
If you own a small web site that doesn’t do tons of online business, then chances are you don’t need a merchant account. These can be costly, and probably won’t pay for itself unless you do a robust business. But instead of losing business by not accepting credit cards, you can use one of other options such as Paypal or Clickbank. 2checkout.com is another good option for few countries not accepted by clickbank.
With these types of payment systems, clients can use their credit cards, and once transaction is complete, money is instantly deposited in your online account. Then you will simply need to transfer it to your bank account. You can even run your own affiliate programme with these services. They are good and not expensive. You pay per sale rather than annoying monthly charges.
You will need to do some comparisons before switching services. Make sure that transaction fees won’t cost more than fees you are currently paying.
