US Corporate Cards on your payment gateway?

Hi peeps, I set up a payment gateway with Nochex here in the UK and have already noticed that sales have increased, mostly by people using this gateway rather than Paypal - so all is good :) My question is in regard to US corporate credit cards. I had an abandoned cart which I pursued, and was lucky enough to have a person who took the time to tell me what the problem had been with her attemp...

Paypal Pro Fraud / Security

I am using Paypal Pro US as my credit card gateway through the standard Shopify integration. Recently I got a number of chargeback disputes in my paypal admin. It looks like someone, or many different people, were making orders on my shop using stolen credit cards. The credit card owners have filed disputes and obviously want their money back. My shop has already fulfilled these orders to the ...

Alternative to Shipwire or Amazon for fulfillment?

For fullfilment services, I was initially going to go with a small, local company who doesn't have all the nice integration with Shopify, so I decided to look at Amazon and Shipwire. I think Amazon has a great offering, but there were two deal-breakers: 1. They won't put my company name on the outside of the shipping box (when people order stuff from company XYZ, they need to see company ...

Paypal or Google Checkout. Which do you prefer?

Ok, so I've been a Paypal user for years and for my store I just added my Google Checkout and I'm pretty impressed by the Google Checkout layout versus the Paypal checkout. What do you guys use and which do you prefer? Right now I'm offering both checkout options but my paypal integration isn't as smooth (I'm getting some wacked numbers on the checkout screen in Paypal). ~Allen ps. ...

Support for Drop Shippers

Hello, I just found Shopify not too long ago and now I'm considering using this system for a client website. I've done some reading and saw the question raised about drop shippers and whether or not they are supported with Shopify. I haven't come across real concrete answers, so I thought I'd pop in here and ask. So, is Shopify okay to use if you're working with a drop shipper? What ar...

Shipwire relaunched programs...

Since Shopify integrated with Shipwire, I've been thinking about fulfillment centres and the possibility/feasibility of using one. I sell DVDs, and most of them sell for $14.99, including shipping and handling. Shipwire seemed like a good option at $80 per month + $1.50 per order + actual shipping cost (I'd be saving on the shipping, because it would be lower sending within the US than what...

USPS Click-N-Ship Integration

I ship most of my lighter items by USPS Click-N-Ship. I either retype everything or copy and paste a line at a time. I was looking thru the forum and I found some references to Address Grabber. I looked into it but I doesn't seem to support Click-N-Ship, just USPS thru and Fedex and UPS. I don't see the point in paying $15/month or whatever it is now for what Click-N-Ship and Red...

USPS Priority Shipping Thoughts

Do any of you use a hybrid of USPS Priority boxes and sending USPS with your own boxes? I'm having trouble because USPS charges about 2 bucks more to use their boxes, so the idea is their rolling their costs up into the postage. - Small order, not USPS packaging. - Medium order, USPS prio packaging - Large order, USPS prio packaging - Odd order, non USPS packaging Now if I just add ...

Signature Service order option for Fedex?

Is there any way to have this as an option for customers and if so would it also adjust the shipping rate? Right now I just make all FedEx signature service but many don't want that so I wonder what the solution would be.   Thanks.

What payment gateway do people recommend?

Hi all - Does anyone have a recommendation for a payment gateway with solid online reporting?  Before switching to Shopify, I used Intuit Payment Services, which had great reporting.  Since they weren't supported on Shopify, I switched to PowerPay (which uses, and while the pricing is good, the reporting is very poor.  You can only reconcile w/your bank balance after you receive ...

Payment Gateways and Abandonment Rates

Hi, Currently I am only using a Payment option of 'Paypal Express Checkout' for my Shopify store ( Although it works and my conversion rate is not completely horrific (ie varies between 1-4% on any given day) I've never really liked the checkout process with this payment option. More specifically I'm not too keen on the way that the customer is taken 'outside' of t...
