Yahoo Store Offers Simple Payment Processing

When you set up your Yahoo Store, you have plenty of options for processing payments. If you don’t have a merchant account, you can easily set up an account which allows you to accept credit card payments as well as payments through PayPal.

You will not pay monthly fees or transaction fees to Yahoo Store to accept payments with your existing Yahoo Merchant account. It is part of the monthly fee. You’ll only pay transaction fees on your actual sales. With a Yahoo Store, you can also use your existing merchant account in conjunction with PayPal, and offer your customers the choice of paying by PayPal or credit card.

Setting up an online store may be one of the most important things you do. When you choose to work with Yahoo Small Business, you’re making a decision to work with one of the best web services provider on the Internet.

Your Yahoo Online Store is a dedication to your business.

Promoting your Yahoo Store for Free

"Build it and they will come" may have worked for Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams, but doesn't hold true when it comes to attracting website visitors to your Yahoo Store. You may have a great website, but it is all for nothing unless shoppers know you exist.

The basics of promoting a great Yahoo Store can bring tremendous success with the proper marketing steps. If you are willing to spend your time and effort wisely, then there are ways to market your storefront for free.

Actually, you can promote any website for free. It doesn't necessarily have to be a store with ecommerce enabled.

Here are some free tips to market your site for free:

  • Spread your URL around by talking about it and putting it on every piece of literature you own
  • Join your local Chamber of Commerce and have your site be listed with them
  • Yahoo has a set of free promoting tools that you can use in your endeavors
  • Join online forums that are related to your niche and drop your URL
  • Start a blog and use other blogs

These are just a few free ways. I hope to expand in depth about bringing massive website traffic to your Yahoo web site in the near future.

Choosing Yahoo Merchant for your Online Store

Selecting a provider for your online store is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in creating your online business. And If you’ve already tried other solutions, you probably know how difficult it can be to get what you need when it comes to hosting a store.

If you haven’t built a store before, and you want to find a long-lasting solution that serves your online ecommerce needs, Yahoo Merchant is your permanent solution.

It used to be that creating an online store and getting started online took time, money and effort. With Yahoo Merchant, you can run a professional online store an affordable $39.95 monthly, and set up your store with not knowing how to program or design for the web.

And just recently, with the express plan for only $19.95, users can sell up to a maximum of 10 products. This is an introductory plan if you have a few products to sell and are new to setting up an online store with Yahoo!
