> sell digital goods

> paypal

I worry.

I agree, but it’s hard to find a good alternative that is comparably fast and most users already know.

@Astoundify

don’t know what’s the purpose of the “I keep it a secret”-acting, it’s not like you are apple… At least you could state if its a theme, a plugin or anything new/innovating that is worth waiting for, but as you don’t want to talk about this I will just go with the things people recommended me here :)

Thanks for that info, but I see none of them as widely used as paypal. Correct me if I’m wrong here. They are good to be added as alternative payment solution besides paypal, but they don’t justify to give up on it completely.

That’s the experience that I made when freelancing and receiving money from all over the world, paypal is the one brand most customers know and want to use.

PayPal is certainly the most widely used, though payment processors that allow you to process credit cards onsite are also huge.

We process about 50% of our orders on the Easy Digital Downloads site through Stripe, and the other 50% through PayPal.

Then I will surely take a closer look at stripe.

I will take a look at the ability of direct credit card payments of the other methods, and the fees involved with that.

Thanks a lot
