Tips For – How to Set up PayPal Account
In this series of PayPal Account Set Up Videos, I’m going to show you how to set up PayPal and brand your PayPal. What PayPal calls creating Custom PayPal Pages. This is a huge benefit for you and a benefit that many people don’t know is available to merchants.
So, what is a Custom PayPal Page?
When a customer clicks on your buy now or add to cart button, they are taken to PayPal where they begin the purchasing process. In most cases, the next page they see is the normal, generic PayPal page. Nothing on it really looks like or tells the customer they are still with YOU…other than some small text that has your business name and some very small text in the description field that says what product they are buying.
Now…if you didn’t know how to set up PayPal correctly, then the business name your customer sees during the PayPal transaction may not be something they recognize or know. Like many people, when you set up your PayPal Account, you may have given it a generic name like OnlineInf0 LLC because you have several websites and sell several different types of products.
Now your customer who is buying shoes from your website named Mary’s Shoes get’s confused when during her purchase she sees OnlineInf0 LLC on the PayPal Transaction Page. She assumes she somehow clicked on a wrong link or somehow PayPal gave her the wrong page. So, she closes out, tries again, get the same results, get’s even more aggravated and goes buys her shoes somewhere else.
Set up PayPal Wrong = Loss of Sales
You’ve lost this sale and potential many other sales because, you didn’t know how to set up PayPal correctly.

How to Set up PayPal Correctly
When you set up your PayPal account, you need to create a Custom Payment Page that will become your Primary Payment page.

This will make your PayPal transaction page look very much like your website.
Now when a customer begins the buying process, they arrive at a PayPal page that has the look and feel of your website! This will keep your customer happy and feeling safe, knowing they are at the right place.
