PayPal Payments lets you offer PayPal, Venmo (US only), Pay Later options and more — all designed to help you maximize conversion.
Help increase conversion by automatically offering PayPal buttons on product pages and at checkout. Consumers are nearly three times more likely to purchase when you offer PayPal.1
PayPal Pay Later
Let customers pay over time while you get paid up front — at no additional cost. PayPal’s pay later options are boosting merchant conversion rates and increasing cart sizes by 39%.2
Venmo (US only)
Reach Venmo shoppers while allowing customers to share purchases with friends. Venmo users spend 2.2 times more annually on online purchases compared to other online buyers.3
Country-specific payment methods
Offer locally recognized payment methods to help build trust and reach international customers, including Payment Upon Invoice (PUI), a local payment option available only for purchases completed in Germany.
Help increase conversions with Pay Later messaging
PayPal Pay Later allows customers to pay over time while you get paid up front — at no additional cost to your business. And since 81% of younger consumers who use buy now, pay later decide which payment method to use before they get to checkout4, showing Pay Later messaging on your site lets customers know they have flexible options to pay over time while they are browsing — helping convert your browsers into buyers.
