    What payment methods will be your first choice for online shopping?

    Online shopping from world wide is one of the most important shipping act for most of the people. As the developing of the online shopping, and we finnally find that there is something wrong with the online shopping website. Some of them do have the priority on something, but none of them.
    I have learnt there are paypal, cash, credit card, western union and so on. For you, which one will you first choose?

    My first choice is Paypal.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    We run quite a number of online shops, both in and outside ZA's borders.

    1. Paypal is the most popular - 1st choice for non ZAR
    2. Next is direct credit/debit (processing online via merchant gateway, require PCI DSSS certification) and indirect credit/debit (forwarding to a merchant gateway for processing) - 1st choice for ZAR
    3. Next comes along Google checkout
    4. Then 2Checkout (DO NOT go with these guys!!! you loose the ability to use #2, plus alot of people have reported draconic treatment)
    5. Liberty reserve and the rest of those odd payment processors

    Paypal is one of the easiest we've dealt with, most notably the multi-currency support. Altho has the downside of very long reserves in alot of cases.

    Yes, paypal is good, and it is also safe but sometimes it goes to be a little misused. There comes so many issues.

    Paypal is my first choice. It is safer, faster and easier way to pay online. I recommend it because it is less time consuming then all other payment methods. It is free to open paypal account.

    Robert, it depends on what products your selling, Paypal is quite tough with digital product downloads.
