PayPal ( www.paypal.co.uk
) are the biggest online payment acceptance company in the world.
Owned by Ebay they provide fully automated and secure online payment
facilities for no initial outlay (subject to sign up criteria).
Running a PayPal web site needs no end user software and customers
can buy online at your site making secure payments straight away
by credit and debit card. Sound good so far.
EA Design can build a PayPal site for you, along with precoded
prices for all your products and online payment facilities through
PayPal for just £425 including web space and domain name.
What is the downside to PayPal?
There really is only one downside to the PayPal system. The buyer
needs to have a PayPal account themselves in order to make a purchase
from you. Now, if you have never heard of PayPal you have likely
never been on Ebay but, take our word for it, many people have and
more people than you think regularly shop with their PayPal account
online (they are, after all the biggest in the world!).
Still, it should
be recognised that you market, with a PayPal account rather than
a full e-commerce site, will be
smaller and it is really a cost decision that you will have to make,
deciding which system is right for you.
As usual, EA Design are happy to chat you through all the options
with you and help you decide on the best way forward for your business.
