  1. That is a truely interesting list – I actually have never heard of some of those methods of payment… It would be interesting to know what the advantages of the one method versus the other is?
    I am only familiar with PP and Paysafecard along with CCs… haha simple and easy that is the key!

      Ummm, It’s really nice idea to show the advantages in versus manner, i will try my best to write my next article (related to payment processing) in versus manner. By the way, you must try Skrill, i mostly use it and it’s compelling :)

      • Hey – thanks for the response, I wasnt expecting one! ;)
        What makes it so compelling in regards to other methods? I mean what is the difference between it and PP or the paysafecard, for example? Is it something significant (fees, etc) or is it just a preference thing?

  2. The article is very interesting. Thanks’!
    It would be interesting which of the online payment the saftiest are?

  3. Hello,
    Thank you for the list. Yes, the choice depends on different aspects (type of business, type of clientele..) but they are all safe. They are for sure the most used but let’s not forget that there are also smaller providers that also guarantee quality.

  4. Hello there, thanks a lot for bringing up this list before us buddy. But besides so many options paypal is opted first.

  5. Hello Siraj,
    Well, have you tried out 2CO or 2CheckOuts? If not then do check it. If you want to have the transaction in INR, this one is very helpful, especially I recommend to every Indian blogger.
