If you're just starting to sell your crafts or other handmade items online, one of the first decisions you'll need to make is how to accept customer payments. There are a variety of choices for payment processing, and many crafters end up using several. The methods you choose will depend on the needs of your business and your customers. One of the most common payment methods for small businesses is PayPal. You also might want to process payments on your own website. That's where companies like Stripe come in.
I like to offer PayPal and direct credit card payments through my Shopify e-commerce site. Stripe is great for in store purchases.
