How does PayPal Work on Your Store?

PayPal fills out the billing address fields with the customer’s shipping address. The customer can edit the information. Shopify can send only a single address to PayPal.

Digital 38 | Set up with PayPal on your Shopify store
Photo credit: PayPal

However, for normal PayPal payments (as opposed to credit card payments) this address must be the shipping address because PayPal already has the billing address. There is no way for Shopify to know ahead of time whether the customer has an existing account. As a result, Shopify can’t send the billing address, such as when the customer is paying with a credit card instead.

How to Start Cross-Border Selling on Shopify

feature

Technology enabled e-commerce to push through cross-border selling and completely transformed the way people buy stuff. Millions of purchases are made online every day regardless of where they are sourced and a large number of products are delivered to end consumers across the globe.

What is Cross-Border Selling?

Selling cross-border helps you reach consumers anywhere in the world by creating localised shopping experiences for your store visitors. Selling in several marketplaces can be an effective key to drive extra income for your business and create brand awareness on a global market.

Digital 38 | Cross-Border Selling Shopify FAQs

Benefits of Cross-border E-commerce

Selling online is no longer the realm of a selected class of e-commerce giants and brand manufacturers. As the technology continues to innovate, this enables small to medium online sellers and street-side businesses to go global and sell across the border effortlessly.

Not only online sellers will benefit from cross-border selling, but also e-commerce platforms such as Shopify.

How to Start Selling Cross-Border?

It is important that you identify your potential target markets before you start selling internationally. You can identify your potential target audience by looking at the size of the market, the simplicity of doing business in that market, and the potential return on investment. You should remember that localising the customer experience is key to driving traffic, and ultimately conversions.

Digital 38 | Cross-Border Selling Shopify FAQs

You should also provide your customers with an option to shop in their local language and currency to build their trust that can lead to higher sales.

It is important that you check with your shipping providers to find out what countries they ship to and which market regulates and limits your products. This way you can adjust shipping regions and comply with the regulations of the receiving market accordingly.

Guide to Google Shopping Ads for E-commerce

d38-google-shopping-ad

Launched first as a paid channel in 2012, Google Shopping Ads have charmed both online shoppers and advertisers. Google offered its service of Shopping Ads to retailers which reliably delivered one of the highest returns on ad spend (ROAS) of any paid channels and has been reported for over 60% of their paid clicks.

Google Shopping Ads and Where to See Them

Product Listing Ads (PLA), also known as Shopping Ads, are the product ads that appear in results when you search in Google.

You can also see these ads on the shopping tab, search partner websites, shopping service apps, YouTube, and Google Display Network.

Shopping Ads appear in Youtube and GDN

What are Google Ads and Google Merchant Center?

Google Ads and Google Merchant Center are the two platforms used in shopping ad campaigns. With Google Ads, you can set up your ad campaigns, set budget, manage bids, increase insights, and optimise. While on Google Merchant Center, you can update your product feed with details about shipping and sales tax.

Setting up your product feed is similar to SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) because Google is using your feeds, site, and other search inquiries that trigger your ads.

Success with Google Shopping comes down to three things:

  1. Creating the top and most relevant ads through an optimised product feed
  2. Developing a campaign design that fits within your desired level of control while getting the best from Google
  3. Obtaining strong reporting data that you can make sound optimisation and growth decisions

It is important that you know your goals for you to set an effective strategy in promoting your products using Shopping Ads. Knowing your target ROAS and deciding whether you want to develop a customer relationship or generate sales are essential in building a lasting online business.

What is the difference between free and paid ad listings?

Many e-commerce entrepreneurs get to use the shopping listings for free when Google first made the announcement of making all products listed for free. But if you’re looking for the most leading position and an increase in volume with your shopping efforts, you need to do a paid approach.

Benefits of Paid Shopping Ads

All the results that appear on the main Google search results page are still 100% paid and are being prioritised. Paid placements give a comprehensive guide as to what potential buyers search for and will give listings the majority of clicks for any search products.

Photo source: Shopify

What are Free Product Listings on Google?

Free listings were introduced in April 2020 and have seen a 70% increase in clicks and a 130% increase in impressions across free listings and ads on the Shopping tab in the US. These free placements are seen on the shopping tab, Google Lens, Google Image results, and more.

However, the traffic from free listings alone is limited for most e-commerce sellers since the most prominent listings are still paid. The free listings always come below the sponsored listings.

Photo source: Shopify

While free product listings won’t totally convert your business, still, it will be a great way of knowing your potential for paid ads. You can check your performance for your free listings inside the Merchant Center under the “Reporting for surfaces” section.

PayPal Comparison: Standard or Express Checkout for Shopify?

D38 | PayPal Comparison: Standard or Express Checkout for Shopify? paypal-2Screenshot Photo: PayPal

PayPal is the safest way to send money, online payments, receive money, or set up your merchant account. There are two types of PayPal accounts — Standard and PayPal Express Checkout. Don’t get confused though. Shopify only integrates with PayPal Express. Regardless, we’ve prepared a PayPal comparison to differentiate the two.

What is PayPal Express Checkout?

Screenshot Photo: PayPal/App Store

PayPal Express Checkout is developed for online sellers. It provides convenience for shoppers whenever they buy goods or services because they won’t be needing input their shipping and billing information every time they checkout on Shopify or an e-commerce store. 

With this, the shopper’s personal information and payment details will be stored securely in the online shop. It’s also an advantage for online businesses as this makes online shopping more seamless easier.

 

Comparison: PayPal Standard vs PayPal Express

PayPal Standard

D38 | PayPal Comparison: Standard or Express Checkout for Shopify? paypal-4
Screenshot Photo: PayPal/App Store

PayPal Standard transactions are processed on PayPal’s website and allow buyers to pay thru their PayPal balance or credit card. From your checkout page, it will be sent to PayPal and a standard transaction fee will be charged for these expenses, which is usually 2.9% + USD0.30 per transaction. After completing the PayPal Checkout, customers are redirected back to your site. Volume discounts are also given to buyers who processed over USD3000 in transactions with PayPal every month.

Checkouts are completed on PayPal’s website. With the standard type, online sellers rely on PayPal’s notification for payment success and failure using the Instant Payment Notification (IPN). The use of IPN can sometimes be defective, wherein orders are not being completed correctly on your store, making it a shortcoming of using PayPal Standard.

PayPal Express Checkout

Screenshot Photo: PayPal

PayPal Express is almost the same as PayPal Standard — a 2.9% + USD0.30 per transaction will also be charged with no setup or termination fees. The difference between PayPal Express and PayPal Standard is the checkout flow.

PayPal Express evades the IPN issues that are common with PayPal Standard. Shoppers will be directed to the payment gateway from your e-commerce or Shopify website, although the checkout is not completed on Paypal’s site. Shoppers confirm the purchase at PayPal, then get redirected back to your site with a token.

This token is only used by your site to make the final payment to PayPal itself. When a customer finishes placing an order it directs the token back to PayPal together with the final order details.

Paypal Express is a more reliable payment method than PayPal Standard. The checkout is completed on your e-commerce site, then the payment is processed on PayPal’s servers once the token is brought back to PayPal.

RCEP Benefits for Cross-Border E-commerce & Export

Digital 38 | RCEP Benefits for Cross-Border E-commerce & Export

The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) is a propositioned pact between the member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and its free trade agreement (FTA) partners. The agreement aims to cover trade in goods and services, intellectual property, and more. Knowing the RCEP benefits can help businesses in Southeast Asia provide better online shopping experience across borders for its consumers.

Additionally, RCEP is the world’s largest free trade agreement in terms of gross domestic product (GDP). It involves 15 member countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Brunei, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand.  

What does RCEP mean for SMEs? 

The RCEP pact will eliminate tariffs for at least 92% of goods, open up trade in goods and services, and promote investment to help emerging economies catch up with the rest of the world. For small and medium enterprises (SMEs), this means easier cross-border trading and selling between neighbouring Southeast Asian countries.

Why is RCEP significant?

Before the RCEP pact was established, there were multiple FTAs in different countries and each of them has its own set of rules. Exporters had to comply with different set of rules for different countries. It was not only time-consuming, but costly as well. By establishing a common set of rules, businesses only need to follow one set of rules when exporting their products or services.

With simplified customs procedure, improved trade facilitation, lowered transaction time and costs, it gives exporters like you a certainty on cross-border activities for your e-commerce plans.

This pact is especially beneficial to SMEs as the digital economy still presents you with significant barriers for cross-border trade.

How does the pact work for you as an exporter?

With greater ease and more open markets, the RCEP pact will provide exporters like you much needed certainty and stability in times like this. With the right strategy, you can leverage on the RCEP benefits for your growing online business.

Though it will take some time for RCEP to get ratified and come into force as certain parties need to complete domestic procedures, businesses may start preparing as early as now. You can look at your current business model and assess the long-term implications of the pact. By doing so, you can reap the RCEP benefits of a more convenient cross-border trade and selling in the future.

Planning to bring your exports into Singapore and start selling online? Contact us and we will help you get started with your cross-border e-commerce store.
