Hello Ross,

You can't receive payments directly on line with a Yola built website as they don't offer secure servers, required for card transactions. The Online Store does this for you behind the scenes.

Hi Ross,

Gop is correct, however I wanted to add that you can set up an online store or pay pal widgets to sell services, not just physical merchandise so you can still make that work.

From looking at your site, I would suspect sending payment requests via PayPal might also make sense for you as the price per each job seems like it could vary greatly.
