Are you using your WordPress.com site to sell products and services, or hoping to do so in the future? If so, you’ve probably experienced the struggle of trying to find a user-friendly and cost-effective payment tool.
While you want to find cost savings for your business, you don’t want to jeopardize your sales by implementing an unreliable tool.
Here are three useful and cost-effective payment tools for your WordPress.com site.
WooCommerce is one of the most popular payment tools for WordPress.com users, and given its seamless integration, it’s easy to see why. This eCommerce solution is powerful, flexible, and customizable, with plenty of free and premium extensions to meet your business needs. With WooCommerce, you can sell both physical and digital goods and services, and ship anywhere around the world.
While the plugin is free with a WordPress.com Business plan, credit card processing costs will depend on your sales volume and the services you use.
If you’re a PayPal fan, you’ll be happy to know the popular payment system also offers multiple WordPress integrations.
The easiest way to accept PayPal payments on your site would be to add a Simple Payments button to your posts or pages. Shoppers can then easily make purchases with their PayPal account or a debit or credit card.
If you’re already using WooCommerce (or considering it), you can also use the PayPal for WooCommerce plugin, which allows you to take payments via PayPal for a faster checkout experience.
For those who prefer the Stripe payment service to PayPal, don’t worry — there’s an option for you, too. The Stripe Payments plugin allows you to accept credit cards on your WordPress.com Business or eCommerce site, and like PayPal, you can also add easy payment buttons anywhere on your site. If you have a WooCommerce online store, WordPress.com also offers a Stripe Payment Gateway integration.
WordPress.com has many options if you’re seeking cost savings for your business, and offers plenty of integrations with affordable payment tools. By selecting these tools, you’ll be able to better serve your shoppers with an easy-to-use, secure payment process to foster customer loyalty.
