When customers are shopping online within their financial limits, debit cards are usually preferred. Debit cards can only be used to pay with money already in one’s bank account, while credit cards are billed, and payments are made at the end of a billing cycle.

Paying with prepaid cards:

Prepaid cards have been introduced as an alternative to credit/debit cards. A customer usually has to choose from different stored values when purchasing them. Virtual currencies are stored on prepaid cards. Despite prepaid cards’ low adoption rate, certain niche categories are gradually adopting them.

Bank transfers:
