If you're like many small business owners, your PayPal merchant account may be your lifeline for accepting payments. The popular payment service is everywhere -- the company claims to have more than 87 million active accounts across the globe -- and is the primary means of payment for millions of businesses.


So, it's pretty darn important, right? With that in mind, integrating PayPal into your small business website is a must.


As you launch your business website, you'll need to take a number of factors into consideration before thinking about payment methods.


Of course, you'll want your website to meet your ecommerce needs, providing an ecommerce solution to showcase your products. But it should also be optimized across all kinds of mobile devices (like smart phones and iPads) and various browsers, such as Chrome and Safari.


This means you'll need an easy-to-use website builder that offers basic functionality, like building your company's main landing page, or storefront, and subpages (such as a blog or an "About" page).


It's also important to have the ability to create discounts codes, track transaction data and comb through that information for marketing purposes. Plus, you should have the ability to incorporate multiple payment types (deposits, pay on completion of services, etc.), and finally, there needs to be a method of payment.


Here's where Ocoos and PayPal match up. With Ocoos's website builder, you're already given all the tools to create a company landing page with an ecommerce solution and data tracking built into the platform -- as well as the ability to create discounts and accept various payment types.


We recognize the importance of a seamless payment solution; that's why we've integrated PayPal directly into the Ocoos platform. If you have a PayPal merchant account -- and come on, of course you do! -- the Ocoos integration drops the 4.9% transaction fee, replacing it with a flat $10 per month access fee.


Because Ocoos is a platform, and the technology is maintained behind-the-scenes, your site will always be optimized for mobile devices and across browsers, and your software will stay updated and current.


With your website and PayPal needs met, you can focus your attention where it matters: on your business.
