The free PayPal shopping cart software is not as robust as other expensive carts. However, it is the perfect way to get started. One of the best things about it is its simplicity. There is nothing complicated about it. Simply logon to your PayPal account, fill out a short wizard, and copy and paste the code for that item into your web page. You may have your page hosted on a basic site and the cart still works well. There is no need to pay for an advanced hosting account. Cactus Canyon was first host with a $3.95 per month GoDaddy plan. It all worked perfectly. I can’t say enough about how great the free PayPal shopping cart software is for startup web pages.
No Merchant Account Required!
That’s right, there is no need to acquire a merchant account with your bank! The free PayPal shopping cart software doesn’t require you to pay extra for a merchant account. This will save you about nineteen dollars per month! Any purchases made on your site will be credited to your PayPal account. It’s quick, safe and easy to then move the money to your own bank account. You’ll be able to accept PayPal and all the major credit cards with the free PayPal shopping cart software!
Extremely Easy Setup!
The free PayPal shopping cart software is by far the easiest shopping cart to use. In fact, when I first created a “buy” button for my first site, it seemed too easy. It was so easy I had a hard time believing I had actually done it correctly….until I actually made some sales! There are only a few step involved to produce the code which you then paste into your site where you want the “Buy” button to be located.
After The Sale
The free paypal shopping cart software makes order fulfillment easy! After every sale PayPal send you an email notifying you of the sale. Then when you logon to your PayPal account, you will see the transaction on the main logon page. Click the transaction for its details and then click “print invoice”. You’ll then have an official looking invoice along with the recipient’s address. At that point, I would copy the relevant information from the invoice and then paste it into my own Word document with my own header and company information. Once pasted into my personalized document, I then copy and paste the recipient’s name and address at the bottom of that page and increase its font size. Then I simply cut that address out with scissors and tape it to the package. This is quick, easy, and very efficient.
