We all know that without happy customers a business is doomed to failure.
If a business has customers who are dissatisfied with their products or
services they lose out on repeat business - and will ultimately wither
away until they disappear.
However on the other hand if a customer has a good buying experience
and are satisfied with the products or services they paid for they will
become a customer for life. Think of the value of this loyal customer
to that business.
On line business is no different. You need to strive to make the
process of purchasing your excellent products or services as straight
forward as possible.
This is easily done by using the worlds number one on line payment processor for small business and individuals - Paypal.
Paypal has all the tools and resources that you need to automate your
selling process and make it extremely simple for the buyer.
Paypal also has something else that not a lot of people know about. It is called the Paypal Sandbox. Many less tech savvy people don't know that this even exists - let alone what it is.
The Paypal Sandbox allows you to use a fully functional test
environment to test your payment flow and make sure everything works as
it should. This enables you to avoid the embarrassment of having a
download page that doesn't load and ultimately makes you money because
of less refund requests and happier customers.
Without the Paypal Sandbox you would have to
place a real order from another credit card or Paypal account to test
the transaction. It is much easier to set up your test accounts and
test your sites in the test environment - where no money changes hands.
Well - today is your lucky day! I have put together a video series
that shows you how to prepare your site and set up and use the Paypal
sandbox for Website Payments Standard. You can be testing your own
sites in the next thirty minutes.
You will see how to use it in simple situations (like taking a payment
and routing to a download page upon successful payment). I will also
show you how to integrate Paypal's advanced features for use in scripts
like membership scripts. (Specifically S2member, but the process is the
same for other scripts).
These Videos show you how to set it all up and start using it today!
