While PayPal is also reliable, their pricing structures are often confusing as there are a lot of “depends on…”, so it’s challenging to work out exactly how much they’re going to charge you per transaction.
When it comes to fees per sales transaction, the best deal is to use Shopify Payments. Not only will Shopify waive all transaction fees, the credit card processing fees are lower than PayPal (and most other payment processors).
It doesn’t cost you anything more to use Shopify Payments, as you’ll need a payment processor to handle payments anyway.
