What is a payment solution?

Payment solutions are different ways to accept payments online. With PayPal, your customers have the flexibility to pay you using a credit or debit card, a linked bank account or any balance in their PayPal account, whichever is applicable in their country.

Whether your business is big or small, we have a payment solution to suit you. Some of them like PayPal online invoicing require virtually no setup. But if you're looking to add a payment solution to your website, depending on the level of integration, you can leverage our eCommerce and shopping cart partners. The good news is that most of our partners are already pre-integrated with PayPal, so it's quick and easy to add PayPal to your site.

What are the considerations?

Here’re some considerations before choosing the right payment solution for your eCommerce business:

  • If you sell a service, such as graphic design or tuition, you may only need to send your clients email invoices. They don’t need a PayPal account to pay you.

  • If you own a blogshop, you might want to sell directly from your website by integrating a PayPal ‘Buy Now’ button or use a shopping cart solution.

  • If you have an online store or you have many products and a dedicated technical team, you may want to build your own eCommerce site.

Other factors to consider for creating an online store:

  • How much customization is required.
  • Whether you'll need eCommerce tools such as inventory management.
  • Whether you will be doing it yourself or hiring a developer.

PayPal is more than just payments. Manage all your payments and access additional features with a single business account.
