Simplify payment processing
Extend tight budgets by doing more with fewer resources. When you process payments with PayPal, you don't have to reconcile cheques, make trips to the bank or manually create reports. PayPal automates the payment and reporting process, from start to finish.
Provide a better service
Make it easy for students, parents and alumni to pay for goods, services and fundraising activities. They can choose whether to pay with PayPal account balances, bank transfers, debit cards, major credit cards – all from one easy-to-add PayPal button.
Let us take care of compliance
Relieve your school or student organisation of the responsibility and risk of storing financial information – PayPal does it for you. PayPal is a leader in online payment security, using state-of-the-art technology to help protect the financial information of payers and ease the burden of PCI compliance.
Get paid faster
With PayPal, you get your money fast. When a payment is complete, the money usually shows up in your organisation’s PayPal account within minutes. From there, funds can be automatically transferred to a linked back account daily, or manually transferred when convenient.
We were very pleasantly surprised with the quick take-up of PayPal after going live in January 2012. We feel really satisfied with PayPal; it’s so easy it runs itself and the students are also impressed as it’s a brand they know and trust. We would highly recommend adding PayPal to any university store website.Sarah Turner, Income Team Leader University of Sheffield
