Why Are More People Choosing PayPal Pro Above the Rest?
There are a variety of different reasons that PayPal Pro has become more popular over the last few years. One benefit is that your customers will never leave your website. With many 3rd party payment processors, your customers will be taken to their payment gateway, which means leaving your site. If they decide to exit during the checkout process, there is a good chance that they will end up somewhere besides your site. With PayPal Pro, this is never a problem.
Another reason people choose PayPal Pro is because of the economical pricing structure. There is a $30 monthly fee and a transaction fee with is normally between 2.2% and 2.9% + $.30 per transaction depending on your total volume. While this may sound like a lot, PayPal Pro does not have many of the common additional fees such as gateway fees, statement fees, downgrade fees, and more.
PayPal Pro is also well known for their user-friendly back office. There are a variety of different tools available to help you know exactly what is going on. You can create customized, easy to read reports, set up a recurring payment schedule, download every transaction or report to Excel, Quicken, or QuickBooks. You can even do a transaction search to find a particular customer, which can be very helpful when you have a customer service billing issue that you need to address.
Another benefit of PayPal Pro is the ability to authorize a payment at checkout, ship the order, and then collect the final amount once it clears. Many 3rd party processors will not tell you about a sale until it has been finalized. This can be particularly detrimental to a membership site because this means that you may end up forcing your new members to wait several days before they get access. By simply allow them to enter your site once the payment is authorized instead of when it is actually collected, you can also keep your members happy.
As you can see, PayPal Pro has a number of benefits as a membership site owner. Plus, with the Magic Members plugin, integration can be completed within a matter of seconds.
