They say that variety is the spice of life, and we’ve turned up the heat on your payment processing options. Check out the latest additions to your Volusion store by learning more about our Stripe integration and the ability to accept PayPal Express through your mobile store.
Volusion Integration with Stripe for Web and Mobile
If you’re new to selling online, you might consider looking at our new integration with Stripe. This integration allows you an affordable, low barrier to entry option to accept payments from around the world. If you’re unfamiliar, Stripe enables you to easily process major international debit or credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and others. It also allows you to have a consistent checkout experience online and on mobile devices.
In terms of cost, Stripe charges 2.9% + 30 cents per successful transaction, all without a monthly fee. When using this service, all earnings will be transferred into your bank account of choice on a 7-day rolling basis. Please note that you’ll need an SSL certificate to use Stripe with your Volusion store.
Setting up your Stripe account is easy. To sign up, go to Settings > Payment in your Volusion Admin. From there, choose Stripe from the Gateway Name dropdown, where you’ll be asked to either create an account with Stripe or sign in with your existing account.
You can also accept payments via PayPal while using Stripe. For more details on using Stripe with your Volusion store, check out this article in our Knowledge Base.
PayPal Express for Mobile Commerce
As we’ve all seen, mobile commerce has exploded and is only expected to continue its rise in the world of online selling. That’s why, to help you earn more mobile sales, we’re excited to add PayPal Express as a payment option for your mobile store.
This new feature opens your store to a much wider audience of mobile shoppers and is designed for you to better convert sales via mobile. In fact, one study shows that accepting PayPal Express increased sales by 18% across devices.
If you’re in the US or UK and have already enabled PayPal Express as a payment method, your customers can now automatically submit payment via PayPal Express on their mobile devices:
