I’m putting together a quick table to compare the online payment processing options available at the moment. At work clients are always asking us to recomend a company or coming to us wanting to use scary providers they found on the internet, and based in places like Nigeria.
There are only so many numbers you can keep track of, so I’ve started putting together a quick reference. This is aimed fair and square at smaller sites where people are dipping their toes into the bright new frontier of e-commerce. I have tried to pick the starter package where possible.
Please contact me with to recommend providers, share your experiences or get me to add companies to this very short list.
