LONDON, February 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
UK's fastest-growing payment service provider Sage Pay extends promotion for "one-stop shop" to help businesses get up and running online
Sage Pay, the UK's leading independent payment processor, has today announced an extension of an initiative that has been created to empower startups and small businesses to kickstart their online services.
The Sage Pay Merchant Services Package contains everything small businesses need to start trading online as quickly and easily as possible. The current promotional offer has been extended due to popular demand, giving businesses signing up to the recently-launched package:
- One month's free payment processing (Sage Pay Go)
- Sage "Planning for Business" software
- 120 days extra free trial of Sage One Accounts
- A £50 PayPal credit voucher
The promotion has now been extended until 29 February 2012, and will sow the seeds for a series of similar initiatives from Sage Pay. These initiatives will be designed to support businesses as they look to get started online.
The new "one-stop shop" solution from Sage Pay encompasses everything from free payment processing to free accounting and business planning software, and is designed to break down the barriers to e-commerce and support fledgling businesses with everything they need to start trading online.
Businesses spend considerable amounts of time exploring how to get started online, and getting a merchant account up and running is an intricate part of this process. High setup costs can make acquiring a merchant account one of the most painful parts of setting up an online business, with Sage Pay's 2011 e-Business Benchmark Report revealing that one in 10 internet business owners pay over £500 in initial setup costs.
"At Sage Pay we know how daunting it can be when starting a business and are passionate about making the process as seamless as possible for our customers. This initiative is an extension of our current customer support outreach and a major statement of intent for us in 2012, as we seek to help businesses nationwide to kick-start their online business", commented MoeenCurmoula, Product Marketing Manager at Sage Pay.
