PayPal eCommerce Integration

Clarity eCommerce™ Integration with PayPal


To complete customer transactions online, eCommerce businesses need to use trustworthy, secure payment processing. Clarity eCommerce™ can be integrated with a number of popular payment processors, including PayPal.

PayPal is a popular payment processorPayPal is one of the most widely known and used payment processors on the Internet. With a merchant account, businesses can sell throughout the US and abroad for a small percentage of the sale and additional small flat fee. No startup or monthly fees are required, so the cost of doing through business through PayPal is dependent only on the total value of your sales. PayPal also decreases their percentage of the sale as your businesses earns more. This makes setting up and maintaining a PayPal merchant account fairly easy. After setting up a merchant account, sellers can start business as soon as the PayPal HTML button is incorporated into their eCommerce shopping cart.

PayPal also offers a number of benefits to customers. In addition to allowing you to accept direct credit card payments, PayPal also allows users to link their personal PayPal account with a credit card or bank account, so payment details need not be shared with multiple merchants, giving your customers peace of mind. PayPal accounts are always free for buyers. Though some users may be concerned when PayPal navigates them off the site to complete their transaction, other users will find value in the brand recognition that PayPal offers.

Clarity eCommerce™ offers robust integration capabilities for PayPal. Just as PayPal’s fee structure allows you to grow your business without penalty, Clarity eCommerce™ can scale with your company as your business expands. With the flexibility and extensiblity to customize your online shopping cart, Clarity eCommerce™ affords complete control over your eCommerce website and customer transactions.
