With PayPal, prospects can buy products online without having to pull out their credit card which simplifies the checkout process.

The quicker and easier a prospect can go through your checkout, the more likely they are to complete their purchase.

But this doesn’t mean credit card payments are dead.

In fact, 42% of online shoppers prefer to pay with their credit card.

Giving visitors multiple payment options will increase conversion rates, and reduce cart abandonment.

Takeaway: Survey your customers and find out what their preferred payment options are. The more relevant options you offer, the more money you stand to make.
