In today's fast-paced business environment, integrating multiple payment options is essential for small businesses to improve conversion rates and maximise revenue. With so many payment processing options available, knowing which one to choose can be challenging. In this guide, we'll run through three major players in e-Commerce and payments – Shopify, Stripe and PayPal - and explain how you can seamlessly integrate these payment options with Thriday to help your business grow.

Shopify, Stripe, and PayPal - Quick Snapshot

Shopify, Stripe, and PayPal are popular payment options in Australia for e-commerce transactions. Let's run the rule over each of them to help you decide what might be best for your business:

Shopify is an e-commerce platform that offers a payment gateway called Shopify Payments. It is available in Australia and offers a range of pricing plans. Merchants can also use third-party payment providers like PayPal, Stripe, and Afterpay. Shopify Payments charges transaction fees ranging from 1.75% + 30 cents to 2.4% + 30 cents, depending on the pricing plan.

Stripe is a global payment processing platform that allows merchants to accept credit card payments on their websites or mobile apps. Stripe is available in Australia and offers competitive pricing, including a flat rate of 1.75% + 30 cents per transaction for Australian cards and 2.9% + 30 cents for international cards. Stripe's key product features include support for recurring billing, fraud prevention, and support for multiple currencies.

PayPal is a popular online payment platform widely used in Australia and offers merchants a range of pricing options. PayPal charges a transaction fee of 2.6% + 30 cents per transaction for domestic payments and a 3.6% + fixed fee for international payments. PayPal's key product features include support for multiple currencies, fraud prevention, and easy integration with e-commerce platforms. PayPal is currently the most popular of the three options in Australia.
