The days of dealing with payment hassles are gone! Now, you can easily accept online payments from your students with multiple payment gateways from any corner of the world.
You must be wondering, how?
Today, in this blog, we will share with you how you can collect online payments for eLearning websites with multiple payment gateways.
So, without further ado, let’s dive in.
Why Should You Accept Online Payments With Multiple Payment Gateways
When you start selling courses online, your customers are not limited to a single boundary. Your site will have visitors around the globe. So, all of your customers won’t prefer a single payment gateway. For example, some may prefer using their credit cards, while others may be skeptical about putting their credit card details on your site. You can allow them to pay using PayPal, or other such international gateway for payment.
Again, some may want to pay using local currency while your payment gateway may not support them. In such a case, you will need a universal payment gateway like Stripe to receive payment in more than 135+ currencies.
It’s proven that sites allowing users to pay through their preferred payment gateways receive a higher conversion rate. So, the easier the payment process, the higher sales you can generate for your eLearning courses.
