Website review

Arriving at the homepage of the PayPal website we’re offered a large visual image with easy to read headings and texts. The log in and password are on top of the page, which are noticed first when arriving on the page.

I created my PayPal account some years ago to test how Paypal worked. Recently I have started to actively use PayPal finding it of great help when needing to do online (international) payments.

I connected my personal bank account to my PayPal account which makes it possible to do a payments through PayPal directly without needing to log in to your bank account and transfer money to Paypal first. I have done multiple payments in this way and have not stumbled upon any problems thus far.

First arriving in my Paypal account I found that there were many links and options and I did not knew right away where I needed to start to add my money. I than eventually found out I needed to go to my profile to make most of the changes I sought, for instance connecting my bank account to my Paypal account.

I also recently am using Paypal in some of my websites including on Website Reviews for visitors to order a “Featured Review” or ordering publicity space at the “Publicity section”. The Paypal offered options at the subsection “For webshops”, which gives you the possibility to simply implement a payment button that is connected to your Paypal account.

This is ideal for creating an easy to use payment system into your website. You can also get an Express Payment system for implementing a shopping cart into your site, you’ll simply fill in what you want and get a line of code that you’re able to paste in your desired web page.

I recently upgraded my account from Private to Premium to receive PayPal payments on my account through the payment buttons I wanted to implement, I found it doesn’t cost me any money for upgrading my account to Premium or Business, you will solely pay PayPal over transactions or the payments you receive. Those 3,5 to 1 percent (lower percentage when your transaction volume rises) I find reasonable when it means I have no start up costs, administration costs or any other fees for using PayPal.

I advice to experiment how PayPal can work for you as it is a broadly used payment system worldwide and it doesn’t cost you any money for owning an account.

You might think at first “What do I need to do”? or “What are all the options?” When you arrive in your PayPal account, I advise you to check out some of the options and see what is important for you. I hope PayPal will make its design a bit more visual and readable though as I find it has many links and options that could seem a bit overwhelming at first.
