When you are first setting up your eCommerce business, there will be a lot of decisions to make. One of the most important decisions (after selecting your brand name, product, logo, etc.) will be defining the user experience at checkout. 

Many new business owners assume checkouts are more or less the same, and that choosing one payment method over another will make little impact on their business. However, the right payment method has the ability to dramatically increase your conversions, encouraging shoppers to come back to your brand time and time again.

With X-Cart, you get access to the most popular payments solutions designed to drive conversions. Talk with a Solution Adviser today to see what is best for your business.

Improve Your Checkout with PayPal

Payment providers can play a key role in both conversion and trust. PayPal is just one checkout method popular around the world, and also a brand name synonymous to security and efficiency.
