Discover how we can help you overcome, the latest payment challenges.
Several factors go into choosing the right payment methods for your business. It can be difficult to know which is best as there are so many options available, and the wrong choice can be costly. Even different customers can have different preferences, so it’s important to offer a variety of options.
However, there are some common mistakes that businesses make when choosing payment methods. Avoiding these mistakes will help you choose the right option for your business and your customers.
Relying on a single payment method
Don’t rely on a single payment method, as this can limit your customer base and lead to lost sales. Make sure you offer multiple options so that customers can choose the one that suits them best. As we mentioned, different customers have different preferences, so it’s important to cater to as many as possible.
Offering inappropriate payment methods
Some payment methods are better suited to certain types of businesses than others. For example, businesses that deal with high-value items or services may not want to offer payment by cheque as it takes too long to clear. Conversely, a business that deals mainly in cash may not want to offer credit card payments as they attract fees. It’s important to research the different types of payment methods and make sure you offer ones that are appropriate for your business.
Neglecting security and fraud
When choosing a payment method, you need to consider security and fraud. Make sure the method you choose has adequate security measures in place to protect your business and your customers’ information. Failing to do this could lead to expensive chargebacks or even legal action.
Not considering the cost
Different payment methods come with different costs, so it’s important to consider this when choosing one for your business. Credit card payments, for example, usually attract fees, so you need to make sure these are factored into your prices. On the other hand, some payment methods, such as direct debit, may have lower costs but require you to set up a merchant account. It’s important to compare the costs of different payment methods before making a decision.
Not thinking about international payments
If you plan to do business with customers overseas, you need to make sure your chosen payment method can be used for international transactions. Some payment methods, such as PayPal, are good for this, while others, such as direct debit, may not be so suitable. Make sure you research the different options before making a decision.
Not considering mobile payments
Mobile payment is the current trend and is only going to become more popular. If you’re not considering mobile payments, you’re missing out on a large potential customer base. This is the problem with old-school businesses that only accept cash or cheques. You need to make sure your payment methods are up-to-date and cater to the latest trends.
Not considering the traffic
The traffic to your website or store must be considered when choosing a payment method. If you only get a few visitors, it may not be worth offering a wide range of payment options. However, if you get a lot of traffic, you need to make sure you offer enough payment options to cater to everyone.
