Paying for goods on an online store via EFT is a pain in the ass in my opinion, but the best of course would be to give the user a choice of EFT, PayPal and Credit Card

Het al iets probeer koop deur PayPall. Halfpad moed opgegee en sal nie sulke tegnologiese wonders weer probeer nie.
EFT is vir my die eenvoudigste. Betaal die plek,bank steur n notice en as shop sien geld is inbetaal dan pos hulle item.
Straight forward.

Agree. More than one method.... but Paypal is best from an admin perspective surely. Everything is noted on the store page - status of transaction etc.

Paypal and EFT online, cash and CC in store.

Credit card for sure. EFT is a schlepp, especially if it is once-off. Paypal I don't like.

I agree give a couple of options.
I prefer CC but have used PayPal as well. Last time I tried to use Paypal in SA it was a prohibitively expensive deal on transaction costs (haven't checked if it was only for the site or a general rule)

Post by: Goose on October 22, 2012, 01:15:38 pm
Paypal - I've been using it constantly! 

1st - It's safe as houses - you never have to enter your bank or card details for payment on any sites............
2nd - Paypal have a security/guarantee system. In other words if you purchase something and not happy with it, or something goes sour - Paypal will investigate on your behalf and get you a refund... all with a basic click of a button. No fighting etc.... THEY sort it!

Cannot recommend it enough!

I do however believe that in SA there is a down-side in the FNB runs the backbone for Paypal......... others might know more!
In the UK - I can leave as much or as little funds in my PP account. No time limit and 99% of the transactions are free (depends on how you suggest the payment)..... I was told that in SA - "the law/FNB/Reserve bank" want you to transfer the funds back into your normal bank account after a limited time period........  :eek7:  so they can charge you fees..? ............. just need to check this.

Hein

You really need to offer card or paypal. From an admin point of view, EFT is a nightmare for everyone involved, including your admin. Paypal and card is automated with your stock, you get an order, pack it up and voila. Real time. No back orders etc.

EFT you are going to be spending your life checking stock, looking for payments, clearing up confusions, emailing back and forth and generally being a d@@s.

Make it easy on yourselves.

Can even offer WMD by credit card. Need some secure warehousing though.

Post by: Abrie on October 22, 2012, 01:42:49 pm
I voted for the credit card as you only allowed for one vote. I do however support the feeling that you must allow for more options. I haven't used PayPal before and can therefore not comment. CC and EFT are quite safe although I do not know what is required from the merchant's side to administer these payment options.
Title: Re: Wilddog Online shop - Payment preferences
Post by: bmad on October 22, 2012, 01:45:12 pm
Paypal, EFT and CC should be offered as a minimum.

This will cater for the majority of your customers. You need to check on the FT process though to avoid the admin surrounding it though.
Paypal could work out too expensive SA to SA, but is fantastic for international business.

Post by: Ratt on October 22, 2012, 01:56:09 pm
My way of doing business is usually sending you a email with what I want, you sending me a email back with prices, a total on all items and reference number for eft. So I eft my money with the ref number, you pull the ref number and gimme what I want. In that way I can sue your ass if I dont get my stuff that I want, because I got the whole paper trail to you recieving your money for listed goods and what Im suppose to get. Don't trust all the other funny stuff.

Card machine at warehouse/physical shop would help

Just watch out for the costs involved if you want to offer CC payments. R400.00pm for Merchant facilities and R165pm for Verification services.

thats my biggest concern - how does one manage this in an online world?  Gateway?  if so do I still pay merchant fees?

Post by: Boerbok on October 22, 2012, 02:23:41 pm
Online: Paypal or CC

At shop: CC (I very rarely use cash anymore)

PS: PM me if you want a quote for a CC machine at your shop at great rates.

I buy stuff online on a regular basis, and 9 times out of ten I pay through my credit card or with paypal. Any other options like"pay with eft first" ect is more of a pain in the ass than anything else. For the shop to work well, being able to pay there and then online for your goodies is a sure way to succeed.  I know I will buy stuff from the WD shop if its easy and convenient.

Title: Re: Wilddog Online shop - Payment preferences
Post by: Safeman on October 22, 2012, 02:59:28 pm
Paypal or CCard - EFT only if you are prepared to have all 4 major banks bank accounts so that you don't have to wait the extra time for the ACB to clear the payment.  (IE Standard Bank acc holder pays to your Standard Bank account etc etc)
Title: Re: Wilddog Online shop - Payment preferences

EFT or CC is fine  :thumleft:

I setup a WD Shop as a beneficiary, most of us will be buying more than once from the Shop anyways and future payments are a breeze, I don't mind the shipping delay if you need to wait for clearance.

My Two cents:

I use my CC most for online purchases, only because it's the most convenient method for me. There is the risk of fraudulent use, but if I'm not mistaken, VCS (https://www.vcs.co.za/) offers you the option to only accept 3D secure enrolled card payments, which really reduces the risk of fraudulent transactions as the user must know that code.

Also EFT through SID (https://www.vcs.co.za/), this is an instant and secure payment gateway for SA, that uses ones own banking portal.  Plus side for merchants is it's secure as the user has to log into their own online bank and also no need for you to have an account with every bank.  Problem for users is that it's not offered by ALL banks, but only the big 4 - Nedbank, FNB, STD and ABSA.  I have used this payment method before and provided the user follows the instructions, it's dead simple and convenient and quicker than a trf if the user doesn't bank with your bank.

Paypal, is very popular, I don't use it much myself and because of this, I always forget my details, so look for the CC option instead :)
Title: Re: Wilddog Online shop - Payment preferences

Eft can only work if you have dedicated admin squad doing constant recons (Bank vs proof of payments). You will have more pissed-off dawgs on your hands than what you would want...checking stock vs payments vs deliveries...

Paypal with integrated stock with Cc or linked account is the simplest...the tech is available to make shop owners' lives easier, I say use it.
