    Hey guys. So I need a little bit of advice.

    I run a business online and I receive money only with Paypal.

    Now I have an existing client (and I've had others in the past a few times too) who says that his Paypal was hacked or something, and he would like to pay with his MasterCard. He says that if that's not possible then he can't buy from me.

    You understand I'd like to accommodate this in order to keep the client, but also for future such situations, I'd like to be able to offer clients the option of paying with their credit/debit card (without Paypal).

    How could I do this? I have a VISA debit card. Could the client pay me directly from his MasterCard to my VISA debit card if I gave him-- is that possible? If it is, what should I give him? The 16 digit number?

    Please guys someone who knows this stuff give me some info.

    Thanks

    He can log into his mastercard and transfer money to your account. Or you can use Stripe

    Can he pay me directly?

    His MasterCard ---> My VISA debit card

    And if that's a possibility (we live in different countries, so it would be an international transfer), do you know roughly the fee I'd have to pay for this transaction? How much I'd lose? A rough estimate...

    And if that's possible, what should I give him so that he can send the payment? Do I give my card's 16-digit number or what?

    No, you don't give out your 16 digit! Give him your account number, he won't be able to pay you using those 16 digits. He might need your iban and swift if its two different countrys.
