These are the three payment methods that we recommend if you want to start managing an e-Commerce website; each platform has its own set of advantages, so everything will depend on your business’s current needs.
The good news is that an e-Commerce website can accept multiple payment methods, both online and offline.
Offline payments include cash on delivery, bank transfer, and pick up; all of these payment methods must be manually approved from the back-end.
