With the holidays approaching, Rock/Creek outfitters has made things even easier for your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping experience. They have brought the very popular Paypal checkout option to their array of purchase options.

Checkout at Rock/Creek with PayPal option

With such a large following, Paypal was a no brainer for Mark McKnight, Rock/Creek eCommerce & Marketing Director: “Our customers have been asking for an easier way to check out, and many of you already have PayPal accounts, so this was a natural addition for us. We are excited to offer PayPal to make holiday shopping easier at Rock/Creek.”

Adapting to the demands of the customer is paramount for any company, and Rock/Creek is no exception. Customer service and continuous improvements to their site have positioned the company as one of the best in the business for purchasing outdoor gear from trusted brands. Rock/Creek has been ranked “Elite” by third-party customer service ranking agency STELLA Service, achieving their highest-possible ranking.

PayPal also lets users finance their purchases through a service called BillMeLater, which appears as a payment option after selecting checkout with PayPal. In addition, Rock/Creek has been working hard to improve the returns process, and will be debuting a new return label solution this week.

Rock/Creek’s has some of its best sales of the year during this week, with sitewide sales on brands like Outdoor Research, Patagonia, The North Face, and more quality brands. They have already started their Black Friday discounts and holiday pricing programs, which means customers can save up to 30% off brands like Outdoor Research. Outdoor Research has technical outdoor jackets, gloves, and camping accessories that keep outdoor adventurers safe and comfortable in the outdoors. These products are built to last and very stylish.

Many items are 30% off and include free shipping on any order over $49. As McKnight explains, “Shoppers can avoid the holiday crowds, stress, cold weather, and aggravation of holiday shopping by shoping at Rock/Creek online today.”
