Our 2 cents PayPal is most ideal option for ecommerce startup. With 164 million accounts, it is the most well known payment method for online shopper. However, shopper need to have PayPal account. Signup process is fairly simple and fast. Other than Visa and Master, it also support PosPay, Mobile Money and most major banks in Malaysia. Not very attractive if compare to PayPal. Application process takes time, too many fees and long settlement period. However it has good anti fraud system. Offer 2 plans; Lite and Premium. Premium is for merchant with annual transaction more than RM61,200. Other than Visa and Master, it also support PosPay, Mobile Money and most major banks in Malaysia. Good for merchant who sells to China because it accepts payment in RMB (Ren Min Bi).
