Merchant Services with PayPal

Merchant Services through the bank can be very expensive to startup, with initial costs, fees, machines etc before you’ve even taken your first payment.

Paypal may cost slightly more on a  per transaction basis but there are no setup costs and you only pay when you get paid.

Here are some useful links for setting up merchant services with PayPal.
