Don’t let your payment solution wear a scary costume for the whole year. Consider a few things that will help you choose wisely.

To make it simpler, meet some scary practices that you should avoid, even during Halloween.

1. Never-ending integration process

Picture the scene — You’ve spent a few weeks adding an online payments to your website, trying so hard, but there are still errors during the payment process or something just isn’t working well.

What’s more, imagine you have limited or no control over the development and payment process on your website. Not cool, huh?

What you need is a transparent pricing structure with no hidden or extra fees guaranteed, so you always know how much and what you pay for. Things don’t always look as they seem, so focus on the REAL costs to avoid getting tricked.

3. Bad user experience
