If you’ve been marketing online for awhile, you know that processing payments can be a little challenging at times. If you don’t have a merchant account, you may be wondering whether to get one or use a payment service. You may also be wondering if the payment service you are considering will work with your online shopping cart. And if you have an existing merchant account, you’re concerned about making sure the shopping cart program you choose will work with your merchant account. All of those worries disappear with Yahoo Merchant services.
When you set up your online store with Yahoo Merchant, you have a number of options for processing payments. If you don’t have a merchant account, you can easily set up an account with PayPal and use Website Payments Pro, which allows you to accept credit card payments as well as payments through the buyer’s PayPal account. You can also set up a merchant account with Chase Paymentech, one of Yahoo Merchant’s partners.
If you have an existing merchant account that is compatible with the FDMS Nashville payment platform, you can accept payments in your Yahoo Store and process them through your merchant account, at no additional charge. You will not pay monthly or transaction fees to Yahoo Small Business to accept payments with your existing merchant account through your Yahoo Merchant store.
You may also choose to use PayPal Express payments with your Yahoo Merchant store, and pay no monthly or annual fees. With this option, you’ll only pay transaction fees on your actual sales. With Yahoo Merchant, you can also use your existing merchant account in conjunction with PayPal Express, and offer your customers the choice of paying by PayPal or credit card for more flexibility. The more options you offer, the more likely your customers are to buy from your store, and Yahoo Merchant helps you offer multiple options.
Of course, when you choose an online store provider and payment processing option, you want to insure the security of your customers’ information. Yahoo Merchant offers 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect your customers, and fraud reduction tools like address verification and IP blocking to protect you.
When you set up your online store with Yahoo Merchant, you’re partnering with Yahoo, one of the most trusted companies on the Internet, to build a complete store, with everything you need to make your online business succeed. You’ll have a professional online presence, the ability to offer gift certificates and coupons, reliable support, several options for payment processing, and the security of knowing you’re working with Yahoo Small Business.
Setting up an online store may be one of the most important things you do. Your online business’s success is important to you, and it’s important to the people behind Yahoo Merchant. When you choose to work with Yahoo Small Business, you’re making the choice to work with the best web services provider on the Internet. Your online store is a commitment to your business.
