Hi everyone smile

What would you recommended as the best payment method for a UK based (GBP) site?

WorldPay seems expensive with its small business fee?
PayPal are OK but I’ve read some horror stories?

I’ve never really used any others. I guess what I really want to know is what’s the most cost effective and simplest to use with Magento!

Obviously it depends on your business, but Protx (protx.com) would be worth looking into.

We’ve haven’t done any custom Protx work but we have integrated it on a Magento site before without any problems.

We are just finishing a SECPay / MetaCharge payment module (www.paypoint.net) , we’ve been partners with them for a while. They have pretty good rates and good customer service, might be worth a look.

I’ve read and experienced PayPal horror stories and always steer well clear for anything but the smallest sites.

Thanks

Tim

WorldPay fan here.

Used to be with Barclays ShitePDQ. Anything ClearCommerce engine based, don’t touch it!

WorldPay is great, though they didn’t do particularly well with their migration but it’s all settled now.

I’ll be toying with the Magento WorldPay plugin over the next weeks to see it uses all possible WorldPay features I need.

ARG, thats not what I wanted to hear, one of my clients is asking me to integrate their site with their merchant account which is Barclays running on the clearcommerce engine.

Can I ask whats wrong with it? Should I be advising my client to go down a different route although I dont think they will because I think their already setup with that system for their offline sales.

I would recommend Barclays with Sagepay (used to be Protx) and don’t be frightened to barter with them we have a few sites and regularly quote cheaper merchant rates.
Worldpay are a good start up but very expensive rates and very one sided in experience with chargebacks at least barclays help you worldpay in experience just take the money off you and charge you for the priveledge avoid.
Paypal are very good at identifying fraud sit on the payment for a couple of days and they will root out the bad ones.

Only just read this. For what it’s worth, as a developer you won’t have many problems. As a merchant, it’s a pain in the arse. A lot of logging in to their system to process orders. Something you don’t have to do with WorldPay.

Sage Pay provides a range of services allowing you to process secure credit and debit card payments online, over the telephone or via mail order.

Yes, it’s a real shame. They have been a good payment gateway with little downtime and good customer service but since the recent ‘upgrade’ things have taken a definite turn for the worse.

The fact it has been down for about 2 hours on what is one of the busiest days of the year for most retailers in the UK has been a final straw for many.

Got any ideas on who else to go with?

Been looking at a few now.
eway.co.uk are rather pricey.
Securetrading.com seem a bit better

Do the problems experienced refer to Sagepay GO or a different version of Sagepay? I\’m really finding it difficult to find the right solution.
