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.

Offer Coupons and Gift Certificates with Yahoo Store

One of the best ways to draw people to your Yahoo Online Store is to offer coupons. Many people who use coupons through your web site or by email, will visit your Yahoo Store to redeem their coupon, and search for related items to buy.

One coupon or gift certificate can bring in many sales. And once you have a customer, you can continue offering them more coupons. Turning new customers into existing customers is a crucial part of making your business thrive. New customers can easily turn into long-term customers.

With Yahoo Merchant or Yahoo Store, offering coupons is very easy and intuitive and is integrated into your online store. There is no programming - simply set up your coupon and distribute it to make more sales.
