The Inside Self-Storage Store, an e-commerce website providing on-demand insight and education products for self-storage professionals, has added PayPal as a payment option for customers. PayPal enables shoppers to pay for goods online without submitting their financial information through a website’s payment system. The ISS Store previously accepted only online credit-card payments using American Express, MasterCard and Visa.
Customers can use their PayPal accounts to pay for all ISS Store products, including digital versions of Inside Self-Storage (ISS) magazine, video and audio recordings of education sessions from the Inside Self-Storage World Expo, digital Guidebooks, on-demand webinars, and a la carte manager-training sessions.
Although the ISS Store is a secure website, protecting customer names, addresses, passwords and credit-card numbers, many online shoppers like the convenience and flexibility of using PayPal when making purchases. Users can link their bank accounts, credit cards and debit cards to their PayPal account.
“Adding PayPal into the ISS Store’s payment structure adds an important layer to our customer service and provides shoppers with another secure option when making purchases,” said Troy Bix, vice president of ISS. “We know that many PayPal users are extremely loyal to that method of payment, and we are pleased to be able to offer it. We also believe this will help solve some payment challenges experienced by a few international customers.”
To use PayPal when making an ISS Store purchase, customers can simply select PayPal when presented with a payment option during the checkout process. Customers are then taken to a secure PayPal server to complete their transaction.
Conceived as a central hub allowing self-storage owners, operators, developers and investors to obtain cutting-edge information and resources, the ISS Store is owned and operated by ISS, a dynamic services provider that has served the self-storage industry for more than 20 years. The brand includes ISS magazine, the ISS Expo, the Self-Storage Training Institute and Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community.
