It makes the most sense to use electronic methods of money transfer for online shopping. Each method has advantages and disadvantages.
Accepting Credit Cards:
To keep identity theft issues to a minimum BG-Gear LLC does not accept credit card information. All credit information will be handled by a payment service who is better equipped to handle sensitive credit information.
Using Payment Services:
There are a few payment services out there. Two of the most popular are PayPal and Google Checkout. Google Checkoout is no longer supported by the store software the BG-Gear uses and would be problematic to implement and maintain. PayPal is supported by the store as an included module and works smooth right out of the box. This makes PayPal the obvious choice for a payment service and is what BG-Gear offers.
Using Money Orders:
A few customers have refused to use Paypal. If you are unwilling to use PayPal for online purchases, BG-Gear will accept money orders for payment. When you select Money Order as the form of payment during the checkout proccess you will be given the address to mail the money order to and instructed to make the money order out to BG-Gear LLC. After BG-Gear has recieved your money order your products will be shipped / or can be downloaded.
If you forget to write down the address to mail the money order to you can find it in your account page. Log into your account and note the mail to name and address for the Money Orders.
Unfortunately using money orders complicates the experience for both the customer and BG-Gear but does offer and option for those unwilling to use PayPal.
