Ways to Safely Accept Checks for Your Products or Services

When it comes to making online purchases and payments, credit cards are by far the preferred option not only for business owners, but for customers and clients as well. Still, there are many people in the world who still prefer to make payments by check. This may be due to reasons of tradition and comfort or even due to the fact that they do not have a credit or debit card. Regardless, online businesses can be losing out on a good chunk of change if they are not accepting payments by checks. Fortunately, this can be remedied by working with merchant accounts to make it happen.

Of course, one of the reasons that many business owners find themselves feeling skeptical about the thought of accepting checks for products or services online is the security issue. They are simply not aware that there are merchant accounts and other services out there that are meant specifically for allowing for the safe and secure processing of online check payments. One of these services is known as PayPal and is one of the most popular merchant services in the world. PayPal accepts payments to and from just about any country, and the cost to use such services is extremely affordable for even small business owners.

To safely accept checks for purchases via PayPal, the first thing a business owner will need to do is to create a PayPal account. This is free to do and also includes credit card processing and even currency converting for those who are planning on accepting payments from other countries. From there, all business owners need to do is to include an explanation on their websites of how to pay by check. They will also need to list their business’ PayPal e-mail so that the customer can send the check directly to the business.

From there, the check is securely run through PayPal’s server and verified for a small fee. Then, all the business owner needs to do is to go to his or her PayPal account, click on “get money,” and receive the funds. This can also be done to receive funds from credit card processing. It is as simple as that!



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. CreditCardProcessing.com was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

Linda Garner from Regali Da Forno

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
