    I want to sell few (5-10 different kinds) small handmade objects through my website from EU to worldwide. I don't have an established business and I don't want to create a firm, because it would be too much of a hassle just for peanuts. I'm expecting sales of few hundred dollars per month, maybe a thousand, in the best case. Which payment method would you suggest for my clients? I want something without any upfront instalation fee, and with small fees per each sale. I want that my clients to be able to pay online directly with their credit/debit cards, without being forced to sign up to Paypal or to other payment processors. I want to easily withdraw money to my bank account, without any legal authority to ask me from where I have those money... Is it possible? What online payment would you use for a small website like mine, in these specific conditions? Thank you in advance.

    Paymentwall might be a decent choice too, but they have high fees I think.

    I already have a Paypal Premier Verified account. Can I use it for payments without the need to subscribe first to Paypal? And what should my clients write in the Paypal form, what does the payment represent?

    just create/generate paypal "buy now" buttons and you will be good to go its free also lol

    but to get better answer for your stuff you need explain better what you trying to sell specially if its hand made as there's tons options for hand made industry one of them just go tru etsy as you get more chances to sell something there then with your brand new website without proper amount $ investing in advertising etc...

    Can I use the Paypal Premier account for sales? If yes...my clients should choose the "gift" option in the Paypal form?

    Paypal is best because customers can checkout using both PP and their credit/debit cards.

    Stripe is a close second

    Have you considered using ETSY, or something similar as they specialise in selling handmade products and will also help bring customers.

    I don't want to use Etsy, but my own website. Anyone can explain me the difference between the Premium and the Business Paypal accounts?
