    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.

    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.
