The original question was regarding the fastest and easiest credit card payment service to set up on a WordPress website.  The answer includes the fastest and easiest credit card payment setup for WordPress – PayPal.

You have several different options when it comes to setting up a credit card purchase on a WordPress website or any website platform for that matter. First off all of the payment processing service websites that offer credit card payment services make it very easy for regular folks to add payment processing links to their websites for obvious reasons – they want a cut of the action.

The simplest and fastest credit card payment processing service to set up is PayPal. All that is required is that you sign up at PayPal for free. The Premier PayPal account is the one you probably want. It is free and gives you a lot more options and features compared to the Personal PayPal account. They also offer a Business merchant account, which you may require depending on your requirements. Once you set up the account you will be able to create and save buttons. PayPal has a wizard that walks you through the process, you type in all your personal info and pricing about the item and then at the end the button code is automatically created for you. You then just copy the code to your WordPress website pages. The whole process takes about 10-15 minutes.

Here is an example WordPress page using the PayPal credit card payment buttons created by using the button wizard >>>…
I basically just created tables on this WordPress page and then pasted the PayPal button code into the table cells. Very fast and very simple to do.

You may want to take a look at this WordPress ecommerce theme called WordPress Market Theme.  It looks very impressive as a pre-built WordPress ecommerce website. I have not personally tried it out, but from what I’ve read it appears to be a very well designed WordPress ecommerce theme with all the backend and frontend bells and whistles. I would imagine that they have included some credit card payment processing modules to make choosing your payment processing service into a one click selection process. is another good credit card payment gateway service. It used to be a little trickier to set up on WordPress, but I have not worked with this payment gateway on any WordPress websites for a while so it may be more user friendly these days.

Personally I would go with PayPal because it is currently the most well known and trusted credit card payment processing service available.
