Hi guys!

Could you tell me what's the best option to accept international payment? I heard a lot of negative reviews about Paypal stealing money recently. So I would like to find other alternative. If you have experience with other services, please kindly share your knowledge.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

I would go with Stripe, as PayPal loves to hold your funds for random reasons, for up to 180 days.

Yes it's the best. I just don't like it when they freeze my money for 180 days because of some blissful reason :alien:
I'll definitely check out stripe.

Yes exactly! Random reasons, I sold some books and they freeze my fund for 180 days. Their supports gave weird response and just gloss it through.

Stripe is something I'm checking out. I also looking at Skrill and some other services like payoneer. Still researching.

See as if you want to integrate payment configurations in website/application then stripe will be best and reliable option for you and even if you want to accept separate payments from some other user then i would suggest you that you can use either Paypal or Stripe

Else and some difference are also there for each country based payment charges etc. So i think it's upto you that what you choose and which is more reliable for you.

Sure thing, that's a great idea. I'm trying to learn the ins and outs of Stripe right now 👍👍

I think your first action is to check compatible payment gateways available in your country then check their charges per transactions....
Some African countries are restricted from receiving international payments ... PayPal for example, Stripe or payoneer is the next option in these countries but then there are still many rules governing receiving funds internationally... The best option right now for these countries is Rave (Flutterwave) though their rates are high... The support community for this payment option is vastly growing.

In summary, look within your country and compare transaction rates before looking beyond. Lastly, good documentation about integration!

this comment is also focused at people who would read this thread having similar challenges... Especially Africans... ;)

Rave is cool, in my country, Paystack is better but you will be required to create a local foreign account to be able to receive USD. Only USD is allowed.

Cool... They've also been acquired by Stripe so, looking forward to more improved changes and accessibilities....

Ah yes, because now, they hold your USD for 7 days and some cards won't work. So some payments gets declined by customer's bank.

They also don't have the feature to push the transaction charges or fees to the customer. A seller bears it all.

Yikes! I'm sure they've received these complaints and work towards improvement this new year... I just wonder people prefer Paystack to flutterwave tho..

Marketing and good advertising, customer support.

Paystack came in with aggressive marketing, even though rave had been around for years.

Rave doesn't have a good customer service compared to Paystack.

And in terms of simplicity, paystack is far easier to use.

But I like and used rave because of the ability to push the transaction fees to the customer.

@viid & @The Accuser

Thank you so much for your info guys!! Viid made a great point about local payment gateway. I did a search just now and found this company that looks pretty awesome called midtrans.com. Perhaps it's good one for local business, but I'm planning to accept more US/UK payment. so perhaps I'll just go for transferwise for manual payment if paypal is not playing nice with me.
