PayPal Express: Is it worth it?

Are you getting higher conversion rates? Or just paying higher fees?

Hi there, Everyone:

If you are using / have used PayPal Express payments on your site, can you let me know what you think of it?

The pushy salesman from PayPal said, "Oh, yeah, it will increase your conversion rates," but when I asked him how much it increases conversion rates, he just said, "a lot."

Also, does Paypal charge higher fees for PayPal express?

Thanks in advance.

I pay 3% for PayPal Express, which I believe is the same percentage as for other PayPal transactions.

Probably 20% of my sales go through PayPal. There's no way I wouldn't feature it as a payment option.

Thank you, dickbaker.

Looks like it might be worth giving it a try.
