Best Payment Gateways to Receive Payments Online

Do you want to receive payments from online freelancing? Are you looking for the best online payment gateway to send and receive money online?

We all know that receiving payments in another currency or from another country and converting it into local currency is a task. Many companies offer these services, but there’s a snake under the basket!

Often times payment companies turn out to have hidden costs, or sometimes they charge ridiculously high conversion rates and fees.

What should you do?

Well, you are in luck, mate. I have been receiving money for the last five years. Undoubtedly I have tried a lot of payment gateways for that purpose.

I am going to suggest the best payment gateway among all the payment gateways I have personally used. But before that, here are some essential factors that you must consider before selecting any payment gateway.

Consider this before receiving payments online.

Below I have mentioned some of the essential factors to consider while selecting the best payments gateway and what the best condition for the elements should be (High or Low):

  • Transaction fees allotted by the payment gateway (low)
  • Service tax allocated for the transaction (low)
  • Currency conversion rates (high)
  • Time for processing the transaction (low)
  • Transaction limits (high)

For example, you want to receive $100 in India (INR) from a payment gateway says XYZ.

The payment gateway has allotted a transaction fee of 3% of the total amount, 2% as service tax, and a currency conversion rate of 1% less than the market value. The payment is processed within 7 working days.

Let the market conversion be 1 USD = 77 INR (today’s rate).

So you should be expecting a payment of 7,700 INR, right?

Wrong. Here’s what you will receive actually:

$100 – $3 (transaction fee of 3%) – $2 (service tax of 2%) = $95 USD

Also, the payment gateway XYZ converts the currency by 1% lesser than the market rate. Therefore, you get 1 USD = 76.23 INR.

Hence, the actual amount you will receive is 95 x 76.23 = 7241.85 INR, i.e., 5.95% less than you received.

Hence, you should choose your payment gateway wisely, or you may unknowingly lose lots of money.

Here are some of the best online payment gateways you definitely wanna stick to:

Payoneer

Payoneer

If your country supports Payoneer, you don’t need to look for other payments. Payoneer is the best of all payment gateways I have ever used. It was previously banned in India by the RBI, but now it’s back with some traction limits, which is not a deal-breaker.

Transaction fees & Limits:

  • Currency conversion charge of 2%
  • Limit of INR 5,00,000 per transaction
  • Limit of INR 2,500,000 per month
  • Payment is processed within 3 – 7 working days

Note: Transactions over the limit will be reversed.
