Default Accepting large payments online? - 11-13-2012, 10:26 | posts: 1,346 | Location: Korea

Hey guys,

Does anyone know how to securely receive payments as a business in the $3,000~$10,000 range that's a better solution than PayPal? PayPal has limits on how much the buyer can send if the buyer is not verified. This creates a cumbersome process that requires the buyer to verify their bank before being able to pay us.


Thanks!

Why not have the buyer do a wire transfer. That would be the easiest if you want to avoid screwpal.

Or this. I believe $3k is the limit on US transfers. But if it's international, it's like $12k


EDIT.

Yup.

How much money can I send with Western Union?



Your limits will vary based on your transaction history, the receiver's country, your location (state) and the service you choose.

ONLINE: When sending online, your limits are typically as follows:

In Minutes, Three Day, and WU® Pay
$2,999 per money transfer

Next Day
$500 per money transfer

Mobile Money Transfer
$500 per money transfer

Bill Payments/Quick Collect
$2,500 per 7 days to a biller (certain states have a limit of $400 only)

Prepaid Services
Limits vary by card issuer.

Online FX International Payments
$10,000 per transaction (and this limit can be raised)

SMARTPHONE: When sending using a smartphone, the same limits apply as when sending online, although not all the same services are offered on the smartphone.

AT AGENT LOCATION: When sending in person at an agent location, you can send up to $5,000 per money transfer.

ON THE PHONE: The money transfer limit ranges from $300 to $2,500.

Why doesn't the OP have an EPOS system able to take electronic payment from clients? Guru3D pub section is hardly the right place for serious business advice is it? Lol

Sagepay is what my friend uses for his business.

Problem is banking systems in each country are different (not sure about the EU though). I would have said bank transfer as well, but then there's the issue as to whether it is from a bank in Korea or internationally. If internationally, you have to use things like SWIFT code (and another method) and it make be difficult for the person to do it through online banking (may have to visit a bank).

Also transactions over a certain amount won't be private for international transfers.
