BlueSnap: A Secure Payment Platform
The BlueSnap company offers a variety of different services to help you with your online payments. It’s important to know what they have to offer so that you can decide if their service is right for your business.
If you already have an account with BlueSnap, then you can log in to your dashboard and read the help articles there. These will help answer any questions that may not be included on their website. If you’re just getting started with them or if you don’t yet have a login, here is what they offer:
Accept Visa, MasterCard, Amex credit cards – When it comes to accepting credit cards online for payment processing services, this is one of the most common choices across all companies out there right now. While this type does tend towards more expensive fees than others like eChecks or direct debit options (see below), many people still prefer credit cards due to their familiarity; plus they are usually familiarized by their bank and easy to use for customers.
Accept eCheck payments – This feature is a great option if you want your online business to be more in line with the traditional retail / brick and mortar type of system when it comes to payment processing. While there are some benefits from accepting credit cards, many people prefer this method because they can have their money deposited directly into their account without having to wait days before seeing any movement on their financial statements. In addition, these types of transactions tend towards being cheaper than credit card options as well (but not always).
There’s also an “Other” option under payment methods that includes things like Wire transfer or even using Skrill which is another company altogether but often works with BlueSnap’s services.
