Accepting Payments Online
you have established your website, and for those planning to have
an online store or collect money for products or services, your
next step is to accept payments online.
A Merchant Account is what allows you to bill your customers'
credit cards for your products and services. Without a merchant
account, your options are only cash or checks.
For smaller businesses with few products, we recommend opening
account. Your customers can purchase your goods and services
with a credit card or their bank account. After a successful sale,
you will receive an email to notify you that you have received an
order and the funds have been deposited into your PayPal account.
Next you can fulfill the customers order. Once the order has been
shipped, you can mark the order as shipped and an email will be
delivered to your customer to let them know that their product is
on the way. Once you are ready to remove funds from your PayPal
