Today is the day of the digital age. We are living in a time with untold possibilities at our fingertips and all we do is complain and moan. How crazy is that! The truth is, the general public do not know how to make money or realize what possibilities there are all around us. That’s why I wrote this post looking at ways to sell your services or product (Digital Good) and Receive payment.
To Sell your product online you need three basic things are,
- Payment Gateway.
- Online store.
- Sell Product and Services.
In a digital marketing, the best and easy way to collect payment from the customer is by Paypal. Paypal is the best and easy way to collect payment but unfortunately, in India, you can collect payment but you can not pay through Paypal. So here I find an awesome payment gateway which is free and no need to pay the money from maintenance fee. The lowest service tax i.e 2% on every successful payment. The alternative of Paypal is Instamojo. It is the best payment method in India. No need to do something hard just enter the amount and send that’s all. You can easily purchase the product or sell your own product through this services.
Even if you are ready with your product, the biggest challenge is to integrate a payment collection system. Most of us make a mistake by offering net-banking or direct deposit as a payment option, which increases the chances of last minute change of mind. You can set payment option on your own product or services just in one click.

It is a Bangalore-based company that is targeted to selling digital goods & collecting payment online. Instamojo offers various solutions to today’s era Entrepreneurs, Solopreneurs & Freelancers.
