paypal merchant referral program
I use paypal as a secondary purchasing option (after eSellerate). I don't get tons of people using paypal, but it does get used. I think it is valuable to have because some people who already have paypal accounts are more free spending their paypal money, since it isn't 'real' yet. Also, if esellerate was ever down, or people had problems with it (this happened once) paypal is there as a back-up. Lastly, paypal's rates are less than esellerate's. I have actually considered making paypal my primary purchase system because of this, but I still have to investigate setting up an automated system for it (which esellerate does automatically).
Anyway, I just got an email from paypal announcing that they are starting a business referral program. So if anyone here was thinking about signing up with paypal it would be cool if you could use the following link:
I’m going to start with paypal as my only payment processor and see how that goes. It took me less than two days to get the paypal part working. They have great dev tools and documentation. I will have a dedicated server running ASP.NET to receive the payment notifications, and the server will automatically send out serial keys via email. I store the transactions in a MySql database just to backup what paypal already stores. The system isn’t live yet, but it is working well with my tests.
