» You want to accept payments through email.

More and more businesses use email as a means to let their customers pay for goods or services purchased online. Even when they do not sell online but simply want to have their invoices paid swiftly and with more convenience for their customers.

Most Payment Service Providers have the option to include a 'payment link' in email, sms or even whatsapp messages. Via the link, the customer is instantly redirected to a payment page similar to the ones you know from webshops. Through that payment page you can offer the option to pay through multiple payment methods like bank transfers, credit cards and paypal. Payment by email is very useful for companies who let their customer pay by invoice, for mail or phone orders, reservations, memberships and subscriptions.

The email can be sent in parallel or can maybe even completely replace your costly paper based invoicing. Sending an email is almost with no cost, and in general, assures swift payment as the message arrives directly in the customer's inbox. Also webshops who have orders processed by mail and phone order (through customer services for example) are able to benefit from this cost-effective payment solution.

We help you to easily find the Payment Service Providers who support the pay by email feature on their payment platform. Start to compare Payment Service Providers and find the best payment gateway to process your email payments.

» You started with PayPal - and now want more.

Many companies starting to sell online, use PayPal as the first means to accept credit card payments and PayPal transactions. It seems like a good way to start accepting payments over the internet. And indeed, PayPal was one of the first companies that made it possible for online retailers and merchants to instantly accept MasterCard, Visa and American Express payments with just one single integration and contract.

Nowadays many other payment gateways, or Payment Service Providers, are able to offer a one stop payment processing solution as well. Allowing you to accept credit card payments ánd numerous alternative payment methods through one single integration ánd contract. And often with better rates for MasterCard and Visa, instead of the 2.5 - 3.5% commission rate charged to small merchants by PayPal.

Only cards and PayPal are supported as a means of payment through the PayPal payment gateway, whereas Payment Service Providers most often have an extensive payment method offering. Note that most providers offer PayPal as one of their payment methods, so do not be afraid to loose the PayPal payment option.

So, compared to most Payment Service Providers, the PayPal payment gateway offering is limited and quite expensive. And - important to recognize as well - is the fact that integration to a Payment Service Provider can be as simple as integrating to the PayPal gateway, however could turn out to be a more futureproof solution.

The limited payment method offering or the high commission rates by PayPal is probably why you are now looking for an alternative. Payment Service Providers come to the rescue.

Our free to use platform allows you to instantly see which Payment Service Provider fits your business. In addition, we enable you to compare Payment Service Providers on payment method offering, integration options, services, and of course, commission rates and transaction fees.

merchant experiences


"I used About-Payments to get proposals for the acceptance of MasterCard and Visa cards. I got feedback sooner than expected and with the right guidance. Also the service during the application and integration was OK. I would advise every company looking to take cards to use their platform to gain insight in pricing and conditions".

Maurice van den Heuvel


"Before we used the services of About-Payments, we had been processing through the same card processor for over 10 years. About-Payments really supported us throughout the application and boarding process with the new acquirer. Due to About-Payments, our costs for MasterCard and Visa card payments are now more than halved."
