What Are the Biggest Payment Trends of 2014?


By Bob Angus, PayPal

How customers want to pay is going through dramatic change.

Just think about how you shopped this past holiday season. Innovations like mobile shopping and simplified checkouts are making buying easier and more convenient.

Your store now needs to go way beyond simply accepting credit cards.

The good news is that those innovations aren't just for the mega retailers. Businesses of any size can take people's shopping experiences to the next level, capturing sales whenever and wherever customers are ready to buy.
