  • e-payments. E-payments refers to any financial transaction where there will be an exchange of value; currency, virtual credits, hard goods, bartered service or credit; via a digital channel, online or telephone. There are a number of "e-payment" methods and they include well known methods such as: credit cards, ACH, direct debit, electronic checks, echecks, mobile payments, advertising payments, payment aggregation and wire transfer.
  • "Getting paid online starts with understanding how and which e-payments you should be taking."
  • Most merchants view the payment market as a limited competitive field with few real differentiators between the players. More often than not, merchants investigating credit card alternative payments are limiting their discussion to ACH, PayPal, Amazon and Google Checkout. In fact there are a number of payment options and a rapidly growing number of service providers offering them. There are 8 definable categories of payment methods with thousands of service providers offering their services globally (about 100 to 150 meaningful players).
