You've asked a hotly debated question. The answer depends a great deal on the type of business that you have. There are SO many online transaction providers. If you are a simple e-biz that isn't going to be doing thousands of transactions per month, PayPal is still a great way to get started. It is free to get up and going and that alone is very appealing to large numbers of new online businesses. The downside to PayPal is that little things can set off red flags with them and they'll freeze your account. But again, if you aren't doing thousands of transactions per month, you are probably Ok. Beyond that, you may want to google financial transactions for your type of business. You'll get enough results there and then go to the BBB or some similar entity and check them out. There are just so many options, it will really depend on what specific transaction needs you have.
Hope this helps!
I think you are moving in the right direction - but I also think you should get out in your lcoal community and ask those business owners there who they use - especially if they are in a similar industry.1 of 1 people found this helpful
From that point on - do you homework - understand the contract or fees or costs - then choose who you think will be the best then hold them to it. Remeber, these companies work for you - not the other way around.
But, you should start by asking other businesses in your local market who they use - then come back here to vet some of them.

The answer to your question may not be as simple as you think. In order to get good advise, you need to share a lot more about what kind of business you are starting.
Paypal may or may not be the answer. For example, will you need a shopping cart? Recurring payment capability? Check and/or ACH capability. The list goes on and on.
Paypal may or may not be an option. The base program is free, but there isn't much to it. Otherwise for $30 monthly for PP Premium, there may be lots better options open to you.
I've said this a million times, and I'll say it again: For any serious (key word: Seriious) business, Paypal can and should be a PART of your payment capability system. But it should never be the ONLY payment option offered.
The reasons for this are far too detailed to outline in this post. They include security issues, cash flow industries, lost business issues, and so on.
Hope this helps. As I said, share some info about yourself and the members of this community will be able to offer a lot more useful advise to you.
