Happy Election Day! We're pleased to announce some great new features with payment services.
You asked for it and you got it! We've received several suggestions to integrate PayPal Payments Advanced and we're happy to bring this to you today.
So, just what exactly is PayPal Payments Advanced?
With PayPal Payments Advanced, you get an easy, affordable, and PCI-compliant way to give customers more payment options and offer them a seamless checkout experience. Here’s why businesses benefit from PayPal Payments Advanced:
No long-term contracts or setup fees: Offer checkout on your website for just $5 a month plus a low transaction fee. Cancel at any time without penalty.
Professional checkout: Embed a professional checkout page that matches your website’s look and feel.
Customers stay on your website: Buyers can pay by credit card or debit card without ever leaving your website – and they don’t need a PayPal account. Buyers who choose PayPal or Bill Me Later pay securely on PayPal.com, then return to your website.
More ways for buyers to pay: Accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal. Customers in the United States can also pay using Bill Me Later, a credit line they select on your checkout page. You still get paid quickly, and Bill Me Later takes care of billing customers and collecting payments.
Where can I sign up and learn more?
What does it look like when my customers checkout?
Your customers will experience the same wonderful checkout already offered by Highwire. If PayPal Payments Advanced is enabled on your account, there's be a PayPal option as illustrated below and a "Continue" button. Once Continue is clicked, they'll be displayed the PayPal Advanced Secure checkout form where they can enter their credit card details or choose an alternate payment method (PayPal Express Checkout or Bill Me Later if enabled).
OK, great! I've got PayPal Payments Advanced, how to I add it to my store?
Setting up is simple and easy. We have some step-by-step guides from the Payment Settings area in your admin.
Is there anything else new?
We've made it easier then ever to integrate with other payment services such as PayPal Pro, PayPal Express Checkout and Stripe. No more hunting for API keys, passwords and logins. Just a couple clicks to authorize Highwire and we'll set everything up for you.
On this election day, if your candidate of choice happens not to win you can at least be assured that the team at Highwire always has your best interests at heart. :)
