So, what should be on your radar as you assess these essentials? While accepting payments is a business necessity, remember that it’s also an opportunity to provide a good payment experience to your customers and build trust.
Payment service providers differ in more ways than just the billing logic they support. They take different times to transfer funds between your customer’s account and yours.
