    Please advise the best payment processor for my case.

    Asked by MelanieD on June 22, 2017 at 04:38 AM


    Could you advise me about the best payment processor for my case ? I am not sure we can use any of these solutions when the account is in FRANCE.

    Please find my needs :

    - Receiving account is in FRANCE

    - Every client will pay from a FRENCH bank too.

    - many transactions from September until March (no other transactions from April until August).

    - amount of transactions can be from 19 euros to 600 euros.

    Thank you so much for your kind help,

    Hello Mélanie,

    Have you checked Paypal payment tool already? I would suggest you to please check Paypal payment options and see if that fits into your requirement. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/50-PayPal-Forms 

    You need to first sign up for a Paypal account: https://www.paypal.com

    When you say "- Every client will pay from a FRENCH bank too." do you mean to say that you want your user's to make payment using their bank account? Unfortunately is it not possible to achieve. If you add PayPal payment tool, users will have to pay through their PayPal account or credit card. If they pay through their Paypal account, they can link  their bank account in PayPal before making payments. The following guide should help you how to add bank account in your PayPal account:  https://www.paypal.com/us/selfhelp/article/how-do-i-link-a-bank-account-to-my-paypal-account-faq686

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your reply.

    Indeed, I was considering paypal but stripe seems better as it is less expensive.

    Unfortunately, paypal and stripe are still too expensive for my case as I will have many small transactions. The fixed fee of 0,25 is quite an issue. Do you know any possibility to get a fee per month?

    Thank you so much,

    Hello Mélaniem

    As far as I know, they do not have any per month fees. Most of the payment gateway charges you a fixed amount plus a percent of each transactions. I would suggest you to please connect with stripe support to understand their pricing:  https://stripe.com/us/pricing

    Thank you!
