Why PayPal? How 2BuyAg uses PayPal to connect you…
“I was sad, then I bought something online. I feel better now.”
Did you know? Online grocery sales are expected to exceed $100 billion by 2025.
That’s about a 20% share of the total $525 billion expected to be spent on food, according to a recent Food Dive: Grocery newsletter.
When 2BuyAg set out to get farmers into the online market, we wanted to make the transition as simple and seamless as possible. 2BuyAg chose PayPal as the payment gateway for our service knowing that many farmers currently use PayPal as their preferred way to accept payments. Of course, that isn’t the only reason why 2BuyAg chose PayPal.
Why PayPal for Farmers?
With PayPal, the 2BuyAg marketplace moves seamlessly from the moment the buyer is “Ready to Buy” to the payment gateway. This streamlined checkout process reduces the chances of buyer drop-off and cart abandonment. According to PayPal, 24 percent of online shoppers abandon their transaction if their preferred payment choice isn’t offered. PayPal offers many ways to pay. PayPal even has a PayPal Credit option that benefits buyers who may need to delay payment, such as for purchase orders. Which means, the farmer gets paid at the time of purchase, and PayPal handles the credit payment: Farmer gets paid now, buyer pays later.
Farmers do need a PayPal business account in order to start selling on 2BuyAg. Here’s how: How to setup a PayPal business account to start selling on 2BuyAg

Why PayPal for Buyers?
2BuyAg also chose PayPal because it offers multiple payment options that buyers have come to expect from the online marketplace. Multiple payment options is central to 2BuyAg’s mission of better connecting farmers and buyers because that mission includes working for all buyers from families to farm-to-table chefs to schools and hospitals. PayPal even offers the option to delay payment through PayPal Credit, so invoices and purchase orders can be accommodated. The PayPal gateway works seamlessly right from 2BuyAg’s mobile-friendly marketplace, making your purchase from your local farmer is quick and easy.
2BuyAg is a better way of connecting farmers and buyers. Our mission is creating relationships, building networks and a vibrant marketplace for both farmers and buyers. We chose PayPal because we believe it serves that mission. There is no better time than now for farmers and food buyers to get plugged in with each other!
