Okay I need to make a decision about payments

by Darrell Hagan 7 replies
Its no secret here on the WF that PayPal and I have a, shall we say, less than stellar relationship.

So I've been researching all kinds of alternates. To get to the point: I'm strongly leaning toward Kagi for my needs, and would like to hear from you if you have used them.

I've been dallying for a long time with this and D-day is coming soon for me.
Thanks in advance.....

    Have you looked at Google Checkout? I have never heard of Kagi, and your customers probably haven't either...

      I've never used Kagi as a merchant, but have as a customer.

      Kagi is probably more recognizable among people that have purchased software than other products.

    I've never heard of Kagi either, and if I saw it I would be likely to not purchase because of it. Just being honest. Google checkout, or 2CO would be acceptable.

      2CO is probably the one I see most often besides Paypal. I haven't had the occasion to use them as anything other than a customer myself though.

    My favorite alternative is Google Checkout.

    * Free
    * Reputable/Trusted name
    * Make as many accounts as you like
    * Great security protocol
    * User Feedback is good for the service

    Well, I don’t know about Kagi (never heard of it). But if you plan to operate in the internet marketing niche, you should always have Paypal as your primary payment processor, because it is very popular in this community. You are likely to have low conversions without Paypal.

    Side by side, have an alternative payment option (such as 2checkout or Google Checkout) to serve as a backup just in case Paypal goes down or they freeze your a/c for some reason.

    Stay away from Clickbank though: you will get a lot of refund request no matter what.

      Thanks everyone. I'm selling software mainly which is why I looked at Kagi. They've been around for a long, long time. And it looks like they take PayPal too. So I'll probably go with them and Google Checkout.....
