Why do people put payment method icons on their website?

    I believe in the UK it's actually a requirement that you must show the visitor how they can pay BEFORE placing any orders. It's not enough to assume that 'most people know how to purchase things online nowadays'.

    I don't think this specifically means you must show payment method icons but there is no better way than a visual indicator that will also give visitors a little extra trust.
