We have now switched over to PayPal as our Credit Card Clearing House, to better serve our customers needs. In the past, we have used Paymate to clear/process all credit cards, but this is no longer the case.
There are many advantages to using PayPal instead of using Paymate :-
PayPal allows credit cards to be used, with or without a PayPal account. Paymate does also.
PayPal processes your credit card in real time. Paymate takes 1 to 4 business days to process a credit card.
PayPal has no buyer fees. Paymate has a 3% buyer fee, on top of it merchant fee.
PayPal returns any fees to us when we issue a refund to a customer. Paymate does not.
PayPal is trusted and know around the world. Paymate is widely unknown.
Both PayPal and Paymate have world leading Credit Card Fraud Detection Systems in place, which is the main reason why we use these companies to clear/process our online credit card transactions. Without them, we would be an easy target for credit card fraudsters.
