Paypal Questions

Hi there,

 

I'm desiging a website for a business and they have now decided they want to be able to sell online too.

 

It should be quite a small product list - The aim would be to sell Frozen Shellfish & Fish items. Say, up to a

dozen individual items (£15-£40 / item), plus 3-4 gift hamper type items ( £50 - £100 / item).

 

I am currently interested in using Paypal for this as it provides its own shopping cart, payments made using paypals secure server etc. Meaning i could easily intergrate it into the current website.

 

Using Paypal would that mean that the rest of the site wouldn't need to be secure, since everything would be done via Paypal, is this correct??

 

Any other comments/ reviews on people who have used Paypal for a similar purpose would be much appreciated.

 

Many thanks

Welcome to the forums shibby07 :)

 

Yes, that would be correct since the payment transactions will be secure with the paypal cart.

 

Thanks for the welcome and your reply.

 

Would you recommend Paypal for a small online shop? I have looked into using other shopping carts, but since the product list is so small doubt there would be a need.

 

Thanks again!

If Paypal works for you yes. I run a small online business and use eSellerate for my shopping cart. It's very similar to Paypal, they take the orders and collect the payments for a piece of the action.

 

Since I deal with PDA software this works out great for me. As they deliver the purchased product as well.

 

This way I don't have to get a merchant account and purchase an SSL certificate for my site.
