Guide: How do I get Paid?!

7 Sep

You’ve completed your first sale. Great! However, you have no idea where your money has gone – not so great!

Don’t go all ‘Stewie Griffin’ on us; this short article will help put your mind at ease.

When setting up your freewebstore account, you’ll automatically be set-up to receive payments through PayPal. However, you are not limited to PayPal – there are many other payment providers you may wish to use. See for yourself!

Once a customer has completed their payment, the funds will appear in your account – you are free to withdraw! Simple as that.


Choices, choices…

As you’ve seen, there are numerous payment gateways to choose from for your convenience. We’ve provided a little bit more information on two of our most popular payment processors:

The old faithful…

  • PayPal – available in 190 markets around the world, with 24 currencies to choose from.

Freewebstore automatically set up your store through PayPal. Their platform builds on the existing financial infrastructure of bank accounts and credit cards to create a global, real-time payment solution.

The new kid on the block…

  • Stripe – Stripe allows shoppers to pay for goods directly and securely on the store with minimal clicks – processing billions of dollars a year!

Stripe aims to reduce lost sales due to unnecessary data entry, slow redirects, and general checkout friction. Stripe’s lean checkout philosophy has been proven to increase conversions and reduce abandoned carts.

If you choose to go premium, users can opt to get paid offline, giving yourself the BEST possible chance of landing the sale. Some of the options available on the premium package:

  • Pay by invoice
  • Pay by bank transfer
  • Cash on delivery
  • Local collection

Hope we’ve cleared that up a bit for you. Now, don’t spend it all at once  😉
