    >> So you've built your website and connected
    with your new online international customers.
    Congratulations, but how exactly are you going to get paid?
    There are a number of payment methods to consider as part
    of your e-commerce export plan.
    If your company has a website, you can add a payment gateway
    that is provided by a third party and blends seamlessly
    with the software of your site.
    The payment gateway provider accepts credit and debit cards,
    converts foreign currencies into U.S. dollars,
    and sends the payment to you.
    You pay a fee for each transaction,
    so shop around for the best deal.
    Another option is an e-wallet, like PayPal or Alipay,
    which can also collect, convert, and deliver payment to you,
    but they don't require buyers to have a credit card.
    This may be helpful in selling to many parts of the world
    where credit cards aren't as common or preferred as they are
    in the U.S. Also, be sure
    that your pricing info is comprehensive
    and easy to understand.
    You don't want buyers to abandon their shopping carts
    or return goods at your expense because they're confused
    or shocked after the purchase when asked to pay duties
    and taxes they didn't know they owed.
