How do I get started taking
Credit cards - I don't have a
merchant account?

Question - I don't have a merchant account but want to have the facility to pay and receive credit card payments. How can that be achieved at minimal cost.

Answer - The simplest way to get started is to use Paypal.

They take credit cards and transfer the money into your Paypal account. Then you can transfer it to your bank when you want to take it out.

The fees are reasonable and all you have to do is create a Buy Now button using their software, copy the code into your website and you can start taking payments straight away.

You can join here if you don't yet have an account.

Also, once you have an account, here's a page that looks at how to integrate Paypal into your SBI site -
