    PayPal is the easiest.

    In fact, I use an invoice script that has a PayPal gateway built-in plus it
    allows my clients to view their invoices (PDF files) and print them out.
    The client can log-in and pay online, or pay directly through an email you send them.
    If they pay by check, you go in an mark-it as paid (using the admin panel).

    It's about $50, but it's worth it.
    You'll find that your clients will always want an invoice (for their businesses).

    Hi,

    I normally except cheque payments and bank transfers. Work well for me and the funds can be traced from source, important for the accountant.

    Slightly off topic, but I now ask for a deposit before designing (this stops those people who think they might like a website - sometime - and also stops people picking my brains so they can code it themselves) and I am just about to take a part payment before coding as well (I've just been caught by a client who agreed the designs, gave me the words, asked for a specific domain name and now shows no sign of paying or making the website live).

    There are different payment gateways out there but it will all depend on the type of transactions you will be having. You have to think about the user. Make it easy for them to pay and they will be happy. If you have a great [website design with easy navigation and good SEO on it, the visitors will come and you will start to get many leads and money. It's just business basics.
