LONDON, February 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
UK's fastest growing payment service provider Sage Pay launches a 'one-stop-shop' to help businesses get up and running online
Sage Pay Europe Ltd, the UK's leading independent payment processor, has launched an initiative providing businesses across the UK with the tools they need to get up and running online quickly and easily. Designed to break down the barriers to e-commerce and support fledgling businesses with everything they need to start trading online, the new one-stop shop solution from Sage Pay encompasses everything from free payment processing to free accounting and business planning software.
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 set-up 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-ten internet business owners pay over £500 in initial set-up costs.
Empowering start-ups and small businesses to kick-start their online services, Sage Pay's Merchant Services Package contains everything they need to be able to start trading as quickly and painlessly as possible. Businesses signing up for this recently launched package will now also receive:
- One month's free payment processing (Sage Pay Go)
- Sage's 'Planning for Business' software
- 120 days extra free trial of Sage One Accounts
- A £50 PayPal credit voucher
"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 Moeen Curmoula, Product Marketing Manager at Sage Pay.
The promotional offer, running until 16th February, will sow the seeds for a series of similar initiatives from Sage Pay due to launch later this year, all of which will be designed to support businesses as they get started online.
