Online merchants had plenty to say about the services they use to process payments on marketplaces and storefronts as part of the 2013 Sellers Choice Awards in which over 3,000 EcommerceBytes readers participated.

The top four most popular services received very close overall ratings: ProPay (6.6); Amazon Payments (6.5); Square (6.4); and PayPal (6.3), though they received varying scores on the five criteria in which merchants rated them.

Of those four payment services, Square came in highest for Fees at 7.0. ProPay received the highest ratings Customer Service and for Account Holds, while Amazon payments came in highest (by a slim margin) for Resolution Process at a mediocre 5.8.

PayPal was the most rated of all of the 13 services included in the Sellers Choice payments category, and sellers rated it 7.8 for customer popularity.

Respondents indicated they also use cash (56%) and paper payments (81%). The full results were published in the September 8th issue of the EcommerceBytes Update email newsletter.
