Payment methods other than paypal

I have had an account here for quite some time. I keep telling myself I need to start using Bonanza and leave eBay and PayPal far behind. I keep either finding reasons not to, or I just don’t think about doing it. Well, eBay just gave me a VERY good reason to leave them once and for all.

So, I’m in need of a LOT of help to get started on here. My first question would be: What payment options are good, workable alternatives to PayPal? I’d only be interested in something that nearly every prospective buyer had available to them. I have done just a bit of Internet research and found a few that seem like good products, but all of them would require the buyer and me to be “members” with accounts. That’s not what I would call a workable alternative. I need some place that would NOT require the potential buyer to have an account with.

So, does anybody have a really good alternative solution? I’m open to any and all suggestions and will discuss each one as reasonably as I possible can. Thanks in advance.

Bonanza also supports Stripe, which allows the customer to use their own credit card to pay (they don’t have to create a stripe account or anything – it’s transparent on the customer side). Works great.

As others have said PayPal and Stripe are bonanza has as payment options. You will have to have paypal, but stripe is optional (use sales are mostly stripe now on my own website and about a 3rd of what I have here)

If you want to dump Paypal due to your experiences on ebay…don’t..
the only issue I have ever had with paypal is when I sold things on ebay. I have not sold on ebay since 2009 when I opened my first booth here…and never had any issues with paypal

Good Luck
the transition will be slow and at first hard..but if you stick with and follow the can work

PayPal and Stripe should be enough for most all buyers. Bonanza keeps things plain and simple. You won’t be disappointed. Welcome!
