LONDON, April 19, 2011 - Sage Pay, the UK's fastest growing payment processor announces today that
it continues to support the Getting British Business Online campaign
Last year Sage Pay worked alongside Google, e-skills UK, BT and others to
help thousands of small businesses get up and running online.
Businesses that sign up to the Getting British Business Online initiative
will be given a free .co.uk web address that will be automatically registered
in Google's search engine and a new 'wizard' tool that will help them create
a website in 20 minutes. Alongside this, Sage Pay is extending its 3 months'

in 2010 through the Getting British Business Online campaign and has become
one of many success stories.
Lifestylish co-founder Lee Bradshaw commented, "When we saw the GBBO
initiative, we knew it was something that would certainly help us launch our
new website, Lifestylish.com, and we soon got started with Sage Pay. Starting
a new online business is no easy feat, so it was great to receive help and
support from Sage Pay. I'd encourage any new business to see what free
assistance is on offer and make use of it, especially in the first few
Simon Black, Managing Director of Sage Pay notes, "The first year for any
online business is crucial in terms of whether or not they will become a
successful enterprise. We're seeing more and more ecommerce businesses going
bust year on year because they aren't getting the fundamentals right. On the
other hand the businesses that are getting them right are reaping the
benefits. We want to provide the tools and encouragement to help the next
generation of e-commerce traders maximise their conversion rates and become
leaders in their industry."
Providing a simple and safe checkout is the crux of any online business
and one of the tools that Sage Pay is able to provide to e-commerce
businesses to facilitate this is its recently launched Token system. The
Token system allows e-tailers to offer their customers a single click
checkout whilst fully supporting 3D Secure and card compliance standards.
Sage Pay believes this functionality will help e-tailers dramatically improve
the overall customer experience and drive customer loyalty, without
