SAN FRANCISCO--()--RubyLane.com announced today that it has partnered with Amazon Payments to offer buyers an additional payment option on its site.
“Helping drive customers to their shops with new features, payment systems and our outstanding reputation is part of what makes shopping and selling on Ruby Lane a great experience.”
“Our shop owners on Ruby Lane have requested, through open suggestions and our Annual Satisfaction Survey, for an alternative payment system on the site. We have listened,” said Palmer Pekarek, Director of Communications and New Business Development at RubyLane.com.
“Through extensive research, we discovered that Amazon Payments was a great additional selling tool for our shop owners. It was a simple choice once the research was completed - more buyers than any other online payment system are poised to shop using their existing Amazon accounts,” said Pekarek.
So, not only do buyers benefit from additional purchase options, but sellers do as well.
“We were able to work with the Amazon Team and secure a special introductory rate for our current and future shop owners,” said Pekarek.
With this special introductory offer, sellers on the site only pay 2.4% plus $0.30 per transaction (regardless of the sales volume through Amazon Payments), rather than the usual rate of 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction, until at least October 1, 2013. After the introductory period, rates are subject to change, but will not exceed 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction (for International Orders there is an additional 1% fee per transaction). “For many, that is a half-percent savings per transaction for an entire year, and cost savings always help the bottom-line,” says Pekarek.
Ruby Lane also announced, that though October 31, 2012, the site is waiving its $75 set-up fee for new shops wanting to sell on the site. “We are working hard to help shop owners be as successful as possible,” says Pekarek. “Helping drive customers to their shops with new features, payment systems and our outstanding reputation is part of what makes shopping and selling on Ruby Lane a great experience.”
