Online retail marketplace, OnBuy.com, is making the move to PayPal.
Cas Paton, Founder of OnBuy.com, says: “This is fantastic news for us and in turn everyone using our platform – there are more than 230 million PayPal users around the world, so offering it as our payment gateway helps to improve customer confidence because it’s a name they already know and trust. We’re really looking forward to seeing how this further improves the experience for our sellers as more users will be confident in the site thanks to PayPal’s existing credibility.”
Customers will have access to PayPal’s Buyer Protection scheme, offering assistance from the platform’s dispute resolution team. Paton comments: “We are completely separate from any PayPal transactions made – and by that we mean that we are simply the facilitator of transactions, we never hold the sellers’ money. After the item is dispatched, subject to any security checks by PayPal, PayPal pay the merchant directly and they’ll get their money immediately.”
