Evaluation Criteria: Best Online Payment Platforms
Competitive Rates
Competitive Rates

Payment platforms offer merchants an unmatched level of flexibility for their products and services. It is important for these solutions to be competitively priced in all aspects of fees and costs in order to ensure merchants will be able to make a profit from selling their products and services. During our analysis, we compare the different costs of accepting payments through a platform between different providers.

Reliability
Reliability

The overall reliability of a payment platform is also another crucial aspect of our analysis. We ensure the payment platforms we recommend to merchants have a history of uptime and reliable service to help merchants find platforms which do not normally encounter issues or are able to take proactive corrective actions on any features which may cause problems or reliability issues which may negatively impact the platform.

Efficiency
Efficiency

It is also important for the platform to have efficient processes and methods of creating logs and records of transactions. Merchants are looking for software which requires as little human intervention as possible and will search for features which make their use of the platform more efficient. This many include having access to logs, an API, and other extensive features that impact the functionality of the platform.

Variance
Variance

Another concern of ours is the variety or variance of the available features and services within the platform. Merchants are often looking for solutions which match their particular need set and will often require a payment platform which can adapt to their own needs. Having a variety of payment processing features and methods will ensure the merchant will be able to adapt their business alongside their payment platform.

Customer Support
Customer Support

Payment platforms should have a strong investment in customer support and technical support to ensure the merchants using their platform will be able to have any issues they encounter resolved and to have their concerns addressed. Customer support is an important factor for payment platforms due to their self-service and self-setup aspects in addition to the types of features found in common payment platforms.
