    Hello friends

    I have a web design business.

    I have all clients from UNited states and want to see easy way to get payment from them

    Every month I am paying $500-600 to paypal in transaction fee and even after that paypal is now giving a headache to all indian users

    SO my question is what alternatives are there to paypal

    I am thinking of a global bank or something which allows me to take payments all over the world

    For example

    I saw these option in bank of america where I can take payment from clients using invoicing feature

    I have bank of america, citibank and wachovia account from USA as I opened them when I was visiting there but there does not seem any easy option like PayPal

    what do you think?...My company is not registered in India and I can provide any legal documents to any bank

    Let me know

    You could try having direct payments such as credit/debit card payments through your site

    I think the only other option is a credit card or what you were thinking. I'm not aware of how much that costs for a processor but I have researched that too and I haven't found any other way.

    You could try sage pay, i know they operate in US/UK, but not too sure about other countries.

    Hi jeff123,
    What do you mean by PayPal giving headache to indian users? If it is about the fees you are paying, I am afraid there is no such service where you can receive payment online and not paying any fees.
    Good Luck with your business!
