Does upgrading to yola's "online store" definitely enable potential credit card payment facilities on one's website...and are there any other bank charges incurred from the potential payment, Im in South Africa?

When setting up the facility online and payment do you upload your banking details and does the potential credit card payment go straight into you account....or via a 3rd party ?

Does one get the full payment or are there deductions from local and international banks and credit providers? If so how much?

Is it worth having both credit card payment option (preferred) and PAYPAL ?

Hello Jean-Paul,

Direct Credit-card payment depends on the dialogue that transacts between Ecwid and their institution. There is a list of so called gateways for this. There isn't however direct transaction to the institution as it goes through a secure connection which is something that Yola don't provide but the Store company, Ecwid, does so transaction go through this pathway enroute.

There are transaction fees charged by the card companies and their rates are available on their sites generally but most definitely no charges are raised by Ecwid or Yola. PayPal charges you a fee per transaction as you are probably aware and this charge is available from PayPal themselves as it isn't controlled by the Store provider.

It's always a benefit with e-com to include PayPal as a payment option if for nothing else for the penetration it has globally (nearly). PayPal can handle credit Card payments within its own transaction process, as do many of the others in the list

You cannot have more than one Gateway activated at the one time. You would need to turn one off and another on and this can't be done by your customers because it is all front end stuff.

If your own bank has an e-com API then you could enquire with them about this. Beware there is often a large security deposit requested to use their e-com facilities directly!
