Accepting Online Payments!
Online shoppers in the United States will spend $327 billion in 2016, up 45% from $226 billion in 2012, according to a projection released by Forrester Research Inc. in their report, “U.S. Online Retail Forecast, 2011 to 2016”. An ever-increasing percentage of consumers are shopping online - merchants that support a successful online retail website stand to gain a larger share of the available online retail revenue.
Merchants need effective solutions to be competitive in today’s multi-channel marketplace. Additionally, it is imperative to have online payment tools that fit their business needs - a broader set of processing capabilities, a more intuitive user-interface and greater reporting capabilities. Here’s the proof: 94% of consumers research products online before buying. And 3-in-5 people use search engines as a go-to shopping resource.* Clearly, companies that accept online payments and have online marketing can reap the rewards of connecting with more shoppers. Online marketing often costs less than offline efforts and can produce great results. Launching new campaigns online can be lightning fast. Changes and updates can be made instantly, usually at minimal cost. Measurement tools quickly show what’s working and what’s not.* An online payment solution that can effectively support the growing demand for online shopping and purchases can help a merchant with customer loyalty and achieve an increased revenue stream.
