Exploring Ideas For Using PayPal On Your Website To Your Advantage
There are a lot of ways to "monetize" your website, or to make money off of things you might not typically think about, such as through advertisements on your site and affiliations with such websites as Amazon, but there are also a number of ways for you to make money on your own, and with the existence of PayPal, it will be easy for you to set yourself up for collecting payments. If you have thought of trying to make a bit of extra money on your website, and if you are wanting to know how PayPal can help you do this, here are a few specific ideas you might want to keep in mind. First off, PayPal is the preferred method of payment on eBay, but you do not need to sell things on eBay in order to accept payment through PayPal; consider setting up your website as its own "store" - and then, use this virtual storefront to sell the things you would normally sell on eBay. Many people who have a pretty good-sized following on the internet have begun selling their products (the same products sold on other sites and in other stores) for a comparable price, but with an added incentive thrown in; for instance, author JM Tohline (as well as many other authors)sells signed copies of his novel through PayPal, which allows people to pay only two dollars more than they would normally pay for the book, while getting a signed copy! Also, you should know that it can be useful to set up a "donate" button on your site, through which people can select how much they want to donate to you - doing so if they feel like they get a lot out of your website and want to pitch in. By understanding how you can go about putting PayPal to use, you can start to make a lot more money off your products, your items, and your website - and best of all, you will no longer have to give such a big cut to third-party vendors!
