We are very pleased to launch the QWP integrated solution between PayPal and QuoteWerks. It is our belief that PayPal's payment system fits perfectly with all QuoteWerks users wishing to offer their own clients a secure and immediate payment solution
Orlando, FL (Vocus) August 5, 2008
Aspire Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of sales quoting software solutions for the global small and midmarkets, announced today a joint development partnership between Link47 Limited, QuoteWerks' authorized UK distributor, and Quintadena Limited, a QuoteWerks Solution Partner. Together the two companies developed and launched a new utility for QuoteWerks that integrates with PayPal, a global leader in online payments.
Fully integrated with PayPal, the QWP utility enables QuoteWerks users to accept and reconcile payments in real-time and in multiple currencies. When a customer receives a QuoteWerks generated document, QWP inserts a Pay Now option within the document that, when selected, allows the customer to remit funds directly through PayPal, with the monies posted into the company's PayPal account. If the customer does not have a PayPal account they still may use the Pay Now option and pay by credit or debit card.
"We are very pleased to launch the QWP integrated solution between PayPal and QuoteWerks. It is our belief that PayPal's payment system fits perfectly with all QuoteWerks users wishing to offer their own clients a secure and immediate payment solution," said Ian Siebert, Managing Director of Link47 Ltd.
Paul Hodgetts, Managing Director of Quintadena Limited agrees, "The introduction of QWP and PayPal has enabled our clients to further streamline their sales processes. Payments can now be received instantly for invoices sent directly from QuoteWerks. This means the shipment of all goods and services can begin immediately. Any business that collects payments prior to shipping goods and services really should consider this solution!"
QWP improves a company's cash flow by increasing the ability to collect receivables. The utility delivers a highly desired payment process frequently requested by QuoteWerks users. The QWP utility can be purchased on the Link47 website and is available for all current QuoteWerks users located in the UK.
PayPal enables any individual or business with an email address to send and receive payments online securely and easily using a bank account, credit card, debit card or stored balance. Because PayPal allows customers to shop online without sharing their financial information with merchants, privacy is built into the service.
The size of our network and widening acceptance of our product has helped us become the leading payment network for online auction websites, including eBay. PayPal is also being increasingly used at other e-commerce sites for the sale of goods such as electronics and household items, the sale of services such as web design and travel, and the sale of digital content. Today PayPal is accepted in over 100,000 websites across Europe. Offline businesses, including lawyers, contractors and physicians, have increasingly begun to receive payments online through PayPal.
PayPal UK is part of PayPal Europe S.àr.l. et Cie S.C.A. a Luxembourg-based limited partnership, which will be regulated by the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier ('CSSF') in Luxembourg. PayPal Inc is the ultimate parent of PayPal Europe S.àr.l. et Cie S.C.A. and is 100% owned by eBay Inc.
PayPal Inc was set up in the US in December 1998 and acquired by eBay Inc in 2002. PayPal has over 20 million accounts in the UK, 60 million active accounts world wide* (149 million total accounts) and can be used to make online payments in 190 markets.
*Active accounts are those that have had activity in the past 12 months.
