to buy but they would not allow Paypal payment option...
I even offered full payment of $1997 but the staff refused as
they don't have Paypal account.
One of PP option's advantage favors international customers...
Because it saves them some cash on currency conversions..
In my case, I'm not US based but my revenues/sales
are passing thru Paypal in US currency. And those funds are used
for my purchases. Payment of high ticket items such as $2000 would
be seamless but for credit card,
1. I have to withdraw a $2k Paypal fund to my local bank account
thus currency conversion occurs = 1st instance of losing value of my money
2. Next, I then had to pay my bank issuer in my local
currency the $2k equivalent. Then fund is converted again
into US currency in the process of purchasing the product.
~~> (2nd conversion occurs which reduces again the monetary value of the fund)
For future big ticket product launchers, I bet most of your
international customers would not afford to lose some moolah in the conversion
process ...UNLESS they don't have Paypal funds.
I'd suggest getting ready for a Paypal account to receive payments on your next
big launch or if you're afraid of the Paypal horror stories, 2Checkout now offers Paypal option.. Unless my case is isolated. :rolleyes:
However the advantage of using my plastic is the point
accumulation for rebates but I would prefer saving the actual cost!
