What do my customers see?

Step 1:
Customers choose your products.

Customers shop on your site and add items they like to your cart. You give them product options, like size and colour, and show them the tax and shipping costs.

Step 2:
They view their cart and check out.

When they're happy with the selections in their cart, your customers proceed to checkout.

Step 3:
They review their details.

They are taken to PayPal’s secure site to review their order details. To pay with PayPal, they log into their PayPal account. If they prefer to pay by credit card, they fill out the payment form. Your customers see a summary of their order to review billing and shipping information.

Step 4:
They return to your site.

After they confirm the payment, your customers are sent back to your site. You choose where they go, perhaps to a thank you page or back to your home page.

Detailed order management.

For every sale, funds are transferred into your PayPal account usually in minutes. You get detailed transaction history, monthly statements and downloadable logs. We also offer tools to manage sales tax and shipping costs.

“PayPal’s ease-of-use is a must for us. We simply can’t afford to use a payment method our users don’t trust”

Roger Hardy, Clearly Contacts CEO

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get my money?

Just a few minutes when customers pay with their PayPal account or credit card.

What is PCI Compliance and do I have to worry about it?

Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standards are minimum requirements for protecting your customers' payment card information. Adopted by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, PCI compliance is required for all merchants that store, transmit, or process payment card information. Traditionally this creates a lot of work for businesses looking to sell online.

PayPal Payments Standard takes your customers to a PayPal hosted checkout page to relieve you of the burden of protecting their financial data. It also works with the most popular shopping carts. See our shopping cart partners
