This is one of hundreds of videos where I answer the most commonly asked questions related to small business websites. “Today’s question is, can a website take payments?” Well, of course you can! I’m sure you’ve visited many websites that take payments from their clients and your website can too.

The easiest way to do this is to use Paypal. They have very simple ways to put a button there or a simple check out process. The problem is the check out process isn’t very user friendly and it can be a headache.

We recommend Stripe. Most eCommerce or website platforms have a plug-in that integrates very well with Stripe and the checkout is a breeze. That’s what we use on our website. That’s what we use on our client’s website when they need to be able to take a payment from a client.
