PayPal Payments

Want to accept payments via PayPal as well as using a normal merchant facility to accept credit and debit cards?

Since over 20 million UK online shoppers use PayPal, it's easy to see how you could be cutting out a big slice of your sales by not accepting it as a form of payment. In fact, according to a recent Payments Council report, 19% of all UK internet payments are now made using PayPal.

PayPal Payments

With our Solution Two account PayPal Express Checkout is included as a payment option with your account as standard and this makes life simple - no separate integration to PayPal is needed. With our Solution One account it is part of the hosted payment page API and the silent post option.
