Author Avatar

 

Online shopping in Malaysia has gained much momentum in the past years. Malaysians spent a whopping RM 1.8 billion shopping online in 2010 and the figure is estimated to grow in excess of RM 5 billion in 2014: an approximate 35% increase each year.

More Malaysians have turned to shopping online for various reasons. The main being low prices, convenience, easy comparison and time saving. If you want to take advantage of this situation and set up your own online store, you may want to accept credit card or debit card payment as it is the most popular way buyers choose to pay for their purchases.

How to Choose a Credit Card Payment Provider for Your Website

To accept credit card payments, you will need to sign up with an Online Payment Gateway Service. The most popular Online Payment Gateway Services in Malaysia are Paypal, iPay88, MOLPay (formally known as NBEPay) and Webcash.

To help you choose the most suitable payment getaway, take a look at some of the most popular Online Payment Gateway Services and what you can expect from them.
