Key takeaways from alternative payment systems series
A while back I asked you for input as to which alternative payment systems you’d like to see compared to PayPal. Thanks to some great feedback from community members, I was able to map out and write a six part series.
This series examined the following alternative systems:
- Amazon Flexible Payments Service (FPS)
- Facebook Credits
- Google Checkout (plus a bit of discussion on Google Wallet and Google In-App Payments)
- Square and Intuit GoPayment mobile card readers (one article discussing both since they are quite similar in many ways)
The final article in the series summarized and cross-compared each of the systems with each other and the PayPal X Platform. It included a table of key features, availability information, pricing, and other details important for developers and merchants considering their payments options. Please note that the table appears clipped in the HTML version in many browsers; to see the full thing, you can view it in the PDF version of the article (click here to access the PDF).
If you read the entire series, you will understand the major payment system options available to you and be able to make recommendations on which system(s) would be appropriate for specified sets of payments requirements.
