Times have really changed. It used to be that PayPal lacked a certain credibility. It was often associated with homemade websites, and thought of as the Band-Aid way to get money from customers online when you couldn’t do it the “real” way.
But PayPal is all grown up now, and while PayPal still fits its early niche as a payment option that can be easily adapted for sites (often in the business-to-consumer space) that need a quick e-commerce solution, it also has gained enough credibility to be used as a trusted business-to-business payment method as well.
It’s from that backdrop that we can now say that PayPal is a supported payment option on Websites For Printers websites! If you’d like to offer PayPal as a payment method to your customers, here’s how you do it:
You’ll first need to make sure your website is set up to use the Ecommerce Suite. Once that has been activated, all you need to do is follow these simple steps:
If you followed those steps, your PayPal account is connected to your website, and PayPal can be made available as a payment option to customers doing business with you on your website.
That’s it…but don’t forget to check your PayPal account now and then so you can watch the money roll in!
