Important Things to Consider When Making Payment Online
Here are some points to consider while accepting Payments online:
1. Accept Credit Cards and Debit Cards Online
Allowing your customers to make payment online is the most primary way one can accept payment online. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are among the most widely accepted credit cards
2. Always be compliant with PCI-DSS
PCI-DSS is a set of compliance regulations that are mandated by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. To be compliant with PCI-DSS means you must undergo an on-site data security assessment annually.
3. Choose a secure eCommerce platform and processor.
