PayPal for E-Commerce
You don't need a MasterCard, Visa, etc. merchant account to add e-commerce to your web site! PayPal, a third-party e-commerce system made popular by ebay, can be used to collect
donations, registration fees, payments for products, etc.
MouseWorks registers your PayPal account and associates it with your business's checking or savings account. We then insert the PayPal code in desired locations within the web site.
When someone makes a purchase or donation, you receive notification via email. You then log into your PayPal account to see details of the transaction and transfer the funds (less the small transaction fee) to your
SETTING UP YOUR ACCOUNT
In order to set up your PayPal account, we need the following information:
- Name of Bank
- Type of Account (checking or savings)
- Account Number
- Routing Number (see example below)
CONFIRMING YOUR ACCOUNT
Once we've entered your bank account information into the PayPal system, PayPal will begin the account verification process by
making two small deposits into your bank account. After 2-3 days, call your bank or log in to your bank account to find out what the
exact amounts of these two deposits are. Send us this information and we'll complete the verification process.
MAINTAINING YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT
When a customer makes a purchase from your website, you will receive a message from PayPal with "You've got money!" in the
subject line. Go to www.PayPal.com and log into your account using your email address and the password provided by MouseWorks.
From there you can view the payment history, withdraw funds from your PayPal account into your checking/savings account, send
money requests, etc. The user interface at PayPal is simple and straightforward, but please feel free to call MouseWorks if you need any help navigating their system.
