ChannelAdvisor, a provider of e-commerce solutions, is expanding its services by incorporating PayPal Express Checkout to its ChannelAdvisor Merchant program.

The expansion covers purchase in the U.S., U.K., Australia and Canada.

Purchasers an e-commerce sites supported by ChannelAdvisor are linked to PayPal for approval of payment then returned to the retailer to complete purchases. According to ChannelAdvisor, the process makes purchases both safer and easier.

“Merchants rely on ChannelAdvisor for leading products and services in the e-commerce industry,” said Stephanie Tilenius, vice president of merchant services for PayPal. “We are pleased to be working with them to deliver PayPal Express Checkout and help merchants increase sales by offering a more convenient and safer way to pay online.”

“Integrating PayPal Express Checkout with our website was quick and easy through ChannelAdvisor Merchant,” said Marc Ducey, president of GolfEtail. “Since we started offering this payment option, we’ve had an increased amount of customers taking advantage of its convenience.”

ChannelAdvisor Merchant offers e-commerce sites the ability to automate inventory management and order fulfillment as well as other services.

“Our customers look to us to make them stand out in the industry. That’s why we’re constantly adding new features to help them enhance the online purchasing experience,” said Scot Wingo, chief executive officer of ChannelAdvisor. “With PayPal Express Checkout, our customers can offer their buyers even more options to efficiently complete secure transactions.”
