How We Chose the Best Online Payment Processing Services

In a global economy, businesses need to build trust with customers while providing a safe environment to conduct business. By using the best online payment processing providers around, your business can drive sales and implement customer retention strategies designed to promote long-term growth. To assess the best providers, we looked at their transaction fees and limits as well as payment features.

Transaction Fees

Transaction fees for payment processing providers are a combination of a percentage plus a flat fee for successful transactions only. Companies with higher volumes of sales may get a break on fees.

Transaction Limits

There are a couple of transaction limits providers may set. They can restrict the number of transactions a company does during a specific time, such as only allowing a certain number of transactions per month. They can also limit the number of individual transactions. While these limits are imposed at the start, they can be relaxed over time.

Payment Features

The best providers offer integrations with other essential business tools, such as accounting software for invoice reconciliation. Mobile payment support, subscription billing, and chargeback protection are other valuable features. Analytics is also important to provide insight into business performance and customer perceptions, which are key to building stability and achieving growth.
