Learn How to Collect Payments on Your Facebook Shop

The ecommerce industry is growing rapidly. According to Statista, the global e-commerce market was valued at $2,961.4 billion in 2019. It shows that online shopping is becoming more popular with every passing year. In fact, it is estimated that more than 80 percent of all consumers prefer purchases over a physical store.

This popularity has increased due to COVID-19 and its effect on consumer habits. Before going into this topic, I want to give you some introductory information about your company or business in general. For example, if you are just starting out, then you would be able to use Shopify’s free 14-day trial to start collecting payments for sales using their payment gateway. You can collect payments from most major credit cards via PayPal, Stripe, Apple Pay, WeTransfer, etc. You can also add other payment gateways such as Google Braintree or Square. And once you have enough income to afford these services, you can then upgrade to advanced options like Authorize.net, BuyersBill.org, and Trustpilot.

You can learn how to add a payment gateway for both merchants and consumers. Then, when you’re ready, you can now set up an account on any payment service provider such as Amazon or Google Pay. Once your Shopify eCommerce storefront has been created (or upgraded ), you can simply go to checkout to accept payments from customers using different types of payment gateways. Here’s what you’ll need:

A Business Account — you can open one through Shopify’s website. By default, your account will only allow you to buy goods with certain brands (such as Walmart). However, you may also want to open an Individual Business Account in case you want to sell products based off your personal taste. After creating your account, enter a name, email address, phone number, and shipping address to continue shopping on Shopify.

Payment Processor — you can choose to make payments directly to your bank or to another payment processor (such as Shopify itself).
