How you can boost your business by taking card payments

If your e-commerce turnover has increased recently, it’s important to carry out a payment gateway comparison to ensure you’re on the best rates possible.

When first launching your e-commerce website, it is difficult to make an accurate projection of future online turnover. This can make it tough to carry out an accurate payments gateway comparison and to negotiate the best transaction costs for your business.

If you don’t compare payment gateway providers accurately, you could harm your profit margins. Initially, your profits will see an uplift due to the additional revenue stream, but high payment gateway charges could damage your takings. Whether you are on a percentage-based rate or fixed fee per transaction, you could be paying too much for online payment processing.

If you’ve started seeing increases in your e-commerce turnover, it’s vital that you carry out a payment gateway comparison to help your business save money.
