The Basics of Online Payment

Optimizing Your Business

The internet is a convenient way to pay for just about anything these days. You can order food, clothes, and even get your car fixed online but if you have BlueSnap, you can have even better deals. But what if you need to send money to someone else? Well that’s where online payment comes in handy! In this post we’ll discuss the basics of how it works so you can start paying people back without having to go through all those pesky steps.

A brief history lesson: cash-based commerce has existed since the dawn of civilization, as long as people could exchange goods for other goods. It wasn’t until much later that we started using a different medium to purchase items – paper money. Paper bills were introduced in China around 680 AD and Europe got their first pieces of bank notes from the Dutch East India Company in 1661.


For centuries, currency was made out of precious metals like gold or silver; this meant coins had actual worth because they contained some amount of those valuable commodities within them. The problem with these types of currencies is that it’s really hard to transport large amounts without worrying about theft or loss–and even harder to keep track!

If you’re still unsure about how to use this nifty new way of paying people back, here are a few steps that should clear it up. First off all, go ahead and download the PayPal app on your phone or sign into access their website from any computer in front of you. Once you’ve done so, click “send money” and type in the email address for whoever needs funds sent to them (you may also want to enter an amount). Next, select whether they’ll receive either USD or CAD as currency before clicking next; if they never specified which one when requesting payment then make sure to choose whichever is applicable at the time–it’s not set permanently like a mobile number!
