Our online business has grown extremely fast in the last year. We started with a very simple shopping cart and have now upgraded to a very robust one due to our increased business. I’d like to take a moment here to offer a short shopping cart review contrasting the shopping carts we used.
Those wanting to sell goods or services on the web are often faced with the difficult choice of choosing a shopping cart. In this shopping cart review I will compare and contrast the two extremes of shopping cart choices and why you should choose one or the other. When I first started my website, I chose to use the PayPal shopping cart. My first and main reason for choosing the PayPal shopping cart was the fact that it is not only free to use, but I was a able to take credit cards without having to have a merchant account. Merchant accounts usually cost around twenty dollars per month plus a start-up fee.
PayPal Is A Good Way To Start
I had read a shopping cart review on the PayPal shopping cart when I was just starting my site. It too suggested the PayPal shopping cart was a good choice for young sites. The PayPal fee was only slightly higher than the credit card fee with a regular merchant account.
Another factor in choosing the PayPal shopping cart initially was its simplicity. Anyone with basic HTML skill will have no problem with adding it into a page. The process is quite simple. Log in to your PayPal account and click on “merchant tools” and then “shopping cart”. Complete the wizard and then copy and paste the code into your site where you would like the “Buy” button. Nothing could be easier.
