Boost your online shop with business advice from one of the UK’s biggest websites Comment WordPress (6) Facebook () Google+ 6 Responses Laurence Payne The web commerce packages offered by 123-Reg are doubtless fine value. But let’s not forget to mention that Pay-Pal offer free tools that insert even quite sophisticated “Pay by Pay-Pal” facilities onto your existing site. It would only cause bad feeling if a customer discovered this AFTER paying for similar facilities.

However, one of the benefits of opting for a solution like our ecommerce package is that the set up process is all taken care of for you. As long as you have a PayPal account (which, I believe, you need no matter how you plan to use PayPal!), you can integrate the system into your shop with just a few clicks. And of course you get all the other benefits of a ready-to-go ecommerce package too, like a product catalogue system, shopping cart … and the rest. It’s not that you have to buy an ecommerce package to start trading online, but for many people it’s by far the best way to get started. Thanks, John.

However, are there any example sites (ideally real) that can be viewed to see how other companies are doing with the package?

We’re hoping to feature the site on the blog shortly too.
