Sage Pay Now Provide PayPal As A Payment Option.
‘Sage Pay’ is an online payment gateway that has over 30,000 customers, and I have seen a lot of Northern Ireland based companies that use it to allow the processing of credit and debit cards at checkout time on their e-commerce sites.
The big news is that they now also allow people purchasing from an e-commerce site to pay with Paypal as well.

- One in three UK online shoppers prefer to use PayPal

- Average incremental sales increase of 14%
I believe the first one, but I am taking the second one with a pinch of salt for now. But if this turns out to be even half true – I’ll be sure to come back and add an update to this post…
