Are you wondering why your sales are just ranging from average to low? Maybe because you’re not giving your customers other modes of payment.

Generally, the more payment methods you can offer your buyers, the easier it will be for them to buy from your shop and pay for their orders. Most shops offer bank transfer but don’t you think it’s time to add PayPal on your mode of payments to boost your sales?

There’s a lot of benefit when you use PayPal and it includes:

  1. Receiving your money quickly and process your orders immediately.
  2. Your products will be easier to buy for buyers who often use PayPal.
  3. If you also selling to international crowd, you will attract a lot of them because paying with PayPal is easier and cheaper compared to other transfer methods.
  4. Customers can also pay with their credit card through PayPal, which means they do not need to actually register with PayPal themselves. This does however depend on which country the buyer is based in.
  5. You and your customers can access PayPal anytime and anywhere as long as you are connected to the internet.
  6. You are able to transfer money to your own bank account, at no cost.

So how to get started with PayPal?

Just go to PayPal’s website and click Sign Up

Create a free PayPal account

Visit the Paypal website www.paypal.com and click on “Sign up” which can be found at the top right corner of the page. When you register you can select whether you want a private or a business account. If you are a professional seller on handmade marketplaces like Etsy and Artfire, then you should select to have a business account on PayPal.

Then simply fill in your details and you will be registered with PayPal.

Connecting your PayPal account to your bank has a different process so I suggest that you call your bank for more information

When your buyers pay for their order through Paypal, you will quickly receive a notification via e-mail. You also don’t need to wait days for money to come into your account, you can post your orders faster, making your buyers even happier.
