We are running an ecommerce shop based in Manchester and currently using a custom built website which uses Pay Pal to process payments. We are quite sceptical about using Pay Pal as we are not sure customers trust it, so can anyone recommend another payment processor?
Thanks for you help, Rachel.
Good morning Rachel, thanks for the question.
You mentioned you have a custom built eCommerce website? This will have a major impact on what payment processors you can use.
Normally custom built stores will have been programmed to accept many payment processors but you need to double check with the developer that they have NOT only coded for Pay Pal.
If the custom store can work with other payment processors there are many out there from a Merchant account with your current bank to Skrill, SagePay, WorldPay etc.. One note is the merchant accounts is a lengthy process, if your an existing business with accounts the process can be quicker.
Regarding the awareness and trust of Pay Pal, I think this has moved on massively over the last 5 years. They have worked hard on building their awareness and I would recommend to stay with Pay Pal.
