Hi all, Kellie here with MorePhotos. Not only do I work for MorePhotos, but I am also a user. I first became a customer of MorePhotos almost 15 years ago when I had my wedding and portrait studio. A few years ago I made the decision to retire from photography and close my studio. To my dismay I found I missed the photography industry not very long after. I loved the photography industry and knew that I loved MorePhotos as a vendor after being a customer of theirs for 10 years. I am so happy that 18 months ago I was lucky enough to go to work for MorePhotos. And today I have some exciting news to share with you.
When you hear the words “Merchant Account” most folks cringe. We have all had dreaded credit card fees, and especially the monthly fees associated with merchant accounts. MorePhotos wanted to do something about that so we went to PayPal to see if they would help our customers get a full merchant account without the monthly fee… And we did it! We are happy to announce that MorePhotos will waive the monthly fee for all of our customers who sign up to use PayPal Pro. For those of you that don’t know the PayPal Pro monthly fee is $30, in addition to the transaction fees. Now we are able to do away with the $30 monthly fee.
Up until now I had been paying $5.00 per month for my PayPal business account. As a MorePhotos user, the prospect of having a full merchant account without paying any monthly service fees was very enticing. Last Friday I finally bit the bullet and signed up for my PayPal Pro full merchant account. Not sure why I hesitated so long, maybe it’s because none of us really like change. To my surprise the process was seamless, painless and quick!
And if that wasn’t sweet enough, once signed up and approved, you can download the “PayPal Here” app on your smart device. Once you get the app set up PayPal will send you a mobile card reader free of charge. Now you will be able to accept credit cards wherever you are.
The process was easy, I called the exclusive phone number designated to MorePhotos and spoke with a Merchant Account Specialist. I explained that I was a MorePhotos user, and that I have a current account. They were able to upgrade that account to the Pro account without having to change a thing. I did have to come up with a user name and password that will be used to tie the business account in to certain sites, but the email I was using stayed the same. He explained that with the pro account the client stays on my site now, which will give them a smoother checkout. And further explained if I was using my old account on any other sites that I had used a built in PayPal button, I would need to go in to check to see if I needed to re-input my information to make sure everything goes through seamlessly.
Less than a week later, my mobile credit card reader arrived at my doorstep! And to sweeten the deal, I was able to easily set up my new PayPal Pro merchant account into the brand new MorePhotos shopping cart, enabling real time processing. Now you will be able to easily sell photos online and in person. If you are already a MorePhotos Customer, you can get more info on how to sign up on our Integrated Business Page here.
