PayPal introduced PayPal Plus in Germany, as a solution that can be used by all online shops and allows the client to choose from various different payment methods.
The new service, Via, allows the client to pay with PayPal, credit card, automatic debt collection or invoice. The service is optimized for mobile devices and costs just 1,9% of the purchased product, plus EUR 0,35 for the transaction. Payments are under PayPal’s seller protection. It can be an option for future payment solutions and can be offered to clients as a payment method.
PayPal PLUS for buyers
PayPal Plus provides customers with numerous benefits: it gives them more payment options, allowing them to pay with PayPal, credit card or invoice, and provides a new checkout to make shopping easier. It also provides them with easier handling since PayPal handles most of the tasks for consumers. Another benefit is the high level of security, including the Seller Protection program and enhanced risk management, and it applies to each of the four payment methods.
The service is open to all buyers, even those without a PayPal account, and all options are available to them. Buyers using PayPal Plus would reduce the drop-out rates in their store to a minimum and increase their opportunities for revenue.
