We often get asked if magicians can pay for magic shop items using PayPal.
That's a simple one to answer: Yes
The Merchant of Magic has been accepting Paypal for many years. It's one of the most popular forms of payment that magicians use.
At the checkout you can select several different ways to pay for your magic tricks order. The magic shop accepts credit of debit cards, payment by Amazon checkout, or you can pay with Paypal. The shop also accepts payment via instant bank transfer, which proves very popular for many of our international magicians.
Instant download videos and ebooks are processed using their own checkout process which is intergrated into paypal, so that's the default method of payment to instantly access streaming magic videos and downloadable magic.
Advantages of using Paypal to order magic tricks.
PayPal is one of the largest online payment companies worldwide. If you are a magician who has never used Paypal, you may be wondering why so many magicians use it as their main method of payment for magic tricks:
Credit card safety: When you join PayPal and create an account, you enter your credit card and bank account details into the Paypal system. Once that is done, you never again have to give your credit card details online. PayPal allows magicians keep their credit card information private, so they don't have to worry about a hacker capturing your account information.
Flexibility: It doesn't matter how careful you may be, bank balances can do up and down dramatically as you juggle everyday expenses. Paypal removes the embarrassment and hassle of trying to order magic tricks and magic tuition online only to have your credit card declined. You can set up multiple bank accounts, debit cards, and credit cards to feed into your PayPal account, that way your magic shop purchases always go through the first time. PayPal will then look for funds from your accounts or cards based on the preference you make.
The iPhone App: The PayPal iPhone app makes it easy to order magic tricks wherever you are. PayPal will ask you to authorise purchases with a PIN for added security. Smartphone ordering is very popular and it's an easy way to browse the magic shop from your phone and avoid having to enter in your card details on a tiny keyboard.
Cost: Using PayPal to pay for magic tricks is free of charge. There are no annual membership fees, no processing fees, no service charges. Magicians using PayPal get all the best advantages of the service and do not have to pay any extra.
Accounting: You can login to Paypal anywhere and check your order, print a reciept and review your past payments. It's a great way to set up a magic tricks fund to budget for items or simply keep track of how much you are investing in magic.
