Only accepting paypal in my store, could it be the reason for lack of sales?

    I have two online stores, I need advice on what to do. I opened both recently but have not had a single sale, so could be doing something wrong. Can anyone have a look at both and tell me what I need to change/modify/remove to ensure more people look and buy? I have had some traffic to the first one (with no sale yet) and the second one has people looking too (apparently but not sale yet). Both are less than 2 months old. I live in Australia. I only accept paypal in my store, not sure if that is the reason for no sale since?

    Even large businesses have paypal as their only form of payments. For small stores, it is almost expected to offer paypal, because it is much more trusted than accepting credit cards yourself online.

    how much traffic you received. Conversion for most ecommerce store is 1% or less. So, out of every 100 visitors, you can expect one purchase.

    Paypal is widely used so it is good if you are using Paypal for accepting payment, people are able to make payment from their cards..
