If you are starting a business online, providing services that could be sold online or could be delivered, you would be thinking of a good payment method to collect your money safely. The problem isn’t to create a free online store as it’s easy to be created, but when it comes to getting paid, you have to choose the payment method wisely.
Why a website with PayPal checkout?If you didn’t try other methods before, check 4 reasons PayPal is an excellent payment method for your online store. In addition to those reasons, you should think as a business owner and as a customer. As an owner, you allow the customers to pay deposits easily and immediately, guarantee getting your whole money and avoiding unserious orders. On the other side as a customer, you can pay without going to the shop which could be far, pay using your credit card, debit card and bank account, get your money back if the item isn’t available or if the product wasn’t delivered as stated by the seller. It’s totally fair for both of you. Also, if you are a freelancer or providing a service like translation or designing, you can create a free online store or a free website with PayPal checkout to show your services and products and sell them with no efforts.
Difference between PayPal personal and business accountBefore getting into the tips, you should know the difference between personal PayPal account and business account, especially if you are starting a business online to sell a service not an item to be shipped. Both of them can receive and send payments securely. For the personal account there is a 500$ limit of receiving money monthly and no limit for business accounts, higher fees vs. lower fees, doesn’t accept credit cards vs. accepting debit and credit cards and if you want to have a free website with PayPal checkout button, you will be able to have it only if you owe a PayPal business account.
