Payment gateway comparison chart for ecommerce

Gareth Lisle February 23rd 2014

We are often contacted by clients that want to set up an e-commerce websites.  Once we’ve gained an understanding of their requirements, one of the important decisions that needs to be made relates to which payment gateway is most suitable.  This decision should be based on the anticipated volume of sales (and their value) since this will determine the total cost of the payment gateway.

Here is an overview of just a hand-full of payment gateway providers, along with information about their costs.

Payment Provider Setup Fee Fixed Monthly Fee Transaction

Paypoint £0 £19

350 free transactions each month then 10p per transaction thereafter

 

PayPal £0 £0

For transaction values between £0 and £1500 fee charged is 3.4% + 20p

 

 

Worldpay £100 £19.95

350 free transactions each month then 10p per transaction

 

 

SagePay £0 £25
