Payment method could be a deciding factor for a web host. I would not be surprised if someone turns his back on a web host for not finding his desired payment method.

There are dozens of online payment methods out there which vary from host to host. But among all of them, the customers’ most sought method is PayPal.

How PayPal works

Link your credit, debit, or prepaid cards to you Paypal account and you are off to start making online transaction.

Why choose to pay with PayPal?

It is not the only factor that PayPal offers faster and easier online transactions. Some people choose PayPal because it gives them the required confidence for making a purchase.

PayPal has a 180-days Buyer Protection which covers purchases from deceitful delivery. So with this method, you can have the assurance that someone has got your back.

Another obvious reason of using PayPal is security. When you pay with PayPal, all you need is an email address or mobile number to send a payment. Your payment information (credit card numbers, name, and other bank account details) are hidden from the merchants.

Side note: Accepting Online Payment with PayPal

One silly features we see in hosting market is “Paypal supported hosting” or “web hosting with paypal shopping cart”. Truth is – you don’t need a special web host to receive payment at PayPal.

To start accepting payments online, all you need to do is to copy-and-paste the code provided by PayPal to your website.
