Preferred payment methods vary by country. So it’s important to understand what’s best for each market you’re targeting.
Make sure your provider offers one or more methods that appeal in your target markets – like debit cards or PayPal. With a payment wallet like PayPal there’s no need to pick each local funding method by market. When customers pay with PayPal they can fund their wallet with their preferred payment type.
While people prefer to pay in their local currency, an internationally recognised option like US dollars or euros may be an option too. Some providers will allow you to list prices in different currencies. If you’re not offering payment in the local currency, provide a currency conversion tool.
PayPal enables consumers and merchants to receive money in more than 100 currencies, withdraw funds in 56 currencies, and hold balances in their PayPal accounts in 25 currencies.
With a single PayPal account you can receive payments from more than 218 million active accounts worldwide, and sell to customers in more than 200 markets using 25 currencies.
