Web hosting companies are forever in need of cost effective merchant tools that make simplify the checkout process.
Web hosting companies looking to increase their sales and expand customer reach in 2013 need only to do one thing: offer ecommerce solutions and online payment methods to their customers.
Online shopping is the biggest trend in retail right now, and do you know why? It’s convenient. Shopping online makes the purchasing process endlessly easier on the customer: they can browse leisurely and conveniently from the comfort of their own home, they can complete a purchase in just a matter of minutes using only a credit or debit card and, many times, they can even avoid paying sales tax on items. For all these reasons, online shopping is, and will continue to be, on the rise in our country.
Web hosting companies can capitalize on the growing popularity of online shopping by offering convenient and affordable ecommerce solutions to their customers. Specifically, they can sell their hosting packages, web management services, and other offerings in an easy-to-browse web store format, allowing shoppers to compare details, services, and pricing. Then, they can even enable online payment methods, making the purchase just a simple click away once the customer makes a decision.
As many web hosting packages require a monthly or annual renewal fee, offering online payment methods can have additional benefits, as well, allowing customers to easily set up and configure a regular, recurring subscription. That means, every month, three months, or whenever the customer’s package expires, their subscription will automatically renew, charging their original payment method. With this convenient service, web hosting companies can retain more customers and prevent any payment lapses from occurring.
