Accept Credit Cards On Your Web Site
One of the first things you need to think about when starting a new business is getting your website up and running. There are a few thing you know you'll need on your site: general information about your business, the products or services you provide, your locations and hours--things along those lines. But will customers be able to purchase items directly from your site? If not, you'll be losing a potentially lucrative revenue stream.
When you consider the popularity of e-commerce (an estimated $12.2 billion in revenue in 2003 alone), a business without the ability to sell items directly from its website is lagging behind the times. This is all the more apparent when you consider that more and more people use the Internet in lieu of more traditional means of researching a company or a product (like, for instance, the Yellow Pages).
At Pangea Webhosting, there are a number of things that we can do for your business's website. These include hosting options that include a free web design as part of the package. When you sign up for our eCommerce Plus plan, in addition to free unlimited email accounts, a live phone consultation for your new website design, and search engine submittal, we'll also give you the ability to process credit cards on your site.
We use our industry partner PayPal to process these payments. PayPal has long been an internet trailblazer, with cutting-edge security and fraud protection.
PayPal's recent acquisition of Verisign also shows it's strong commitment to
merchant services in the online arena. Pangea Webhosting will also provide your website with a pre-integrated shopping cart, which facilitates the entire process. And even if you've already got a website for your business, we can still help. Contact us to see what we can do for your business.
