PayPal Overview



PayPal is the fastest and easiest online payment method, and is a secure payment option for both merchants and consumers. There are no setup fees and you can start offering PayPal instantly.

Neto integrates with PayPal Express and PayPal Standard, the two most popular PayPal payment methods.

Keep in mind if your business is partly or fully owned by a trust you cannot offer PayPal as a payment option. Check with your accountant prior to offering PayPal on your website.

Why you should offer Paypal

On average, PayPal buyers use PayPal for more than half their online spending. With the implementation of PayPal Express, your buyers pay fast using information they already have stored with PayPal. Since it's so easy, they're more likely to buy more often!

  • It's a safe and secure way for your customers to shop.
  • PayPal is the standard. Chances are if you're someone who's made a purchase online before you'll have used or at least know what PayPal is.
  • Fast and Free way to receive payments.

PayPal Standard and PayPal Express Differences

PayPal Standard takes the customer to PayPal's site after the entire checkout in order to make payment. Depending on the location of your store they may also need to sign up for a PayPal account before they can purchase.

PayPal Express allows your customers to jump over to the PayPal site before filling in shipping/billing information, and completing it on PayPal's side. Either by using their account details (hence making it "express") or by just inputting the data in. Customers aren't required to have a PayPal account to use this method.
