Now that your professional business site is set up, it's time to start selling products on your site!
All payments made on your site are processed via PayPal. You require a PayPal account to accept these payments, but your customers are free to pay using their card details - they do not require an account.
If you're on a paid plan, you have access to the shopping cart feature which adds a state-of-the-art E-commerce functionality to your site. With this, you will have the button Add to Cart mentioned alongside your products. To use this feature, click here to select an upgrade.
If you're on the Starter plan, you will have the simple Buy Now button mentioned alongside your products, allowing individual purchases only.
In both cases, when the purchase is successful, your customers are left on the Payment Successful page. To make things more efficient, you can set up a process that automatically directs them back to your website so they can continue browsing your catalogue and learn more about your business.
To do this, start off by logging in to your PayPal account.
Once you've logged in, you can follow the steps shown in the following images:
- Click on your name in the top-right corner
- Select Account Settings
- Click on Website payments in the bottom-left of the screen
- On this page, in the Website Preferences section, click on Update
- On this new page, toggle the On option
- Add your website URL in the Return URL field
- Click Save
And just like that, you will now have your customers be directed right back to your website after they have successfully purchased with you!
