Other Ecommerce and Merchant Account Blogs

Filed in: Ecommerce, Guides, Merchant Accounts | 3 comments

I’ve compiled a list of merchant account and ecommerce related blogs that offer good information from knowledgeable, professional people. I’m leaving SEO and online marketing specific blogs off because my list would be far to large for a reasonable post.

It is hard to find merchant account related blogs that offer objective information because most of the blogs out there are run by companies. Although my blog is also company sponsored, I try very hard not to bias my information on anything but my personal opinion and observations. run by John Conde is a good merchant account blog. John offers some great articles and information relating to merchant accounts, and his information remains as objective as any out there. John is also responsible for creating the foundation for the merchant account wikipedia article.

An Ecommerce blog that I find interesting is’s Online Business Blog run by Ana Rincon.

The ecommerce times offers a great ecommerce news and articles. While this isn’t a blog by definition, it is updated with great articles daily and the quality of the content at Ecommerce Times is far above most if the internet.

The most comprehensive blog covering payment processing and ecommerce related news is Payments News, operated by Glenbrook Partners LLC. I have had several articles syndicated by Payments News. They are updated many times a day with highly relevant, interesting news covering everything related to payment processing.

The shopping cart Volusion, offers an interesting ecommerce related blog. The blog topics are focused more on the analytics, usability, and SEO sides of online business.

Lastly, practical ecommerce is a ecommerce magazine offering free and paid ecommerce articles and three ecommerce blogs. Practical ecommerce is fairly new, but I think they have a lot of potential in the world of ecommerce.

That’s it for this list. Email me if you own or know of an ecommerce or merchant account related blog that deserves to be on my list.

    Thanks for mentioning the blog at It’s nice to know that those “in the know” consider it to be informative and, even more importantly to me, objective. This blog is the only other one in the industry that I read on a regular basis as the others out there seemingly tend to be self-serving, lacking in focus, and just not worth the time and effort.
