    What's the most efficient online payment system ?

    Hi guys

    I have been asked by a client to set up an online payment system for his site, where he sells some products.

    Personally I see that paypal is a bit cumbersum as the end user must have a paypal account in order to pay. I wanted to know if there is something more practical, where client can pay directly using his credit card with minimum hassle and where the commission is also reasonable.

    Also, I would have liked to know what you guys' experience tells you. What's the most efficient way to accept payment thro' the net?

    Thanks ...

    As long as your client is not in Germany, then you should be able to use PayPal without requiring the customers to have PayPal accounts. Try setting up a test button and look for the Account Optional checkout.

    Are you planning on setting up a Shopping cart? if so then you may try searching for a professional merchant account that can be integrated with a payment gateway. Since you are in Paris I can't recommend any good merchant provider, if your customer by any chance is located in the US i would go with

    Shopping cart: osCommerce
    Merchant Acct: Global Payment
    Gateway: Authorize.net
