A global leader in payments
PayPal Checkout now adapts to consumer shopping habits by presenting their most relevant payment buttons during checkout. The new Smart Payment Button features dynamically display PayPal, Venmo, PayPal Credit1, or other local payment options2 in a single stack–without needing to leave the merchant’s website.
The PayPal logo may also reassure buyers who are shopping on the site of an unfamiliar merchant. With more than 237 million active PayPal consumer accounts worldwide, adding PayPal Checkout to your WooCommerce store is sure to be noticed.
A fast, easy payment experience
When customers use PayPal Checkout, they can skip online forms and complete their checkout in just a few taps, helping boost your sales conversion and reduce shopping cart abandonment. Shoppers can start the checkout process on the product page or shopping cart page. PayPal passes customer contact and shipping details to you so buyers can check out without needing to complete forms on your site. Fewer steps at checkout can help improve conversion by up to 87.5%3. It’s a quick and-easy payment solution that can help increase sales.

Features & Benefits
Security is handled by PayPal
Payment processing occurs on our secure servers so you don’t have to worry about handling sensitive payment information on your site. With PayPal Checkout, you can focus on improving your bottom line instead of PCI compliance!
Easy onboarding with WooCommerce
The free extension provides you with a simple way to set up a new PayPal business account, or use an existing account. Click on the “Setup your PayPal account” button in the cart. There’s no need to copy and paste credentials from your PayPal account. Required authorizations for the WooCommerce plug-in are integrated into the set up flow, and most countries are supported. The only countries not supported for this easy onboarding are India, Israel, Japan and Brazil.
In-Context Express Checkout
Our new In-Context feature can help speed buyers through payment without leaving your website — for a secure, seamless checkout consistent across devices. On Macs and PCs, your site remains front and center while providing customers with a streamlined, integrated experience. Smartphones and tablets display an optimized full-page checkout window.
The PayPal One TouchTM check out experience
PayPal Express Checkout for WooCommerce includes the One TouchTM checkout experience, which eliminates the need for PayPal customers to enter a password or card details for up to six months. PayPal customers can pay with fewer clicks where and how they shop, increasing their ease in completing an online purchase, especially on mobile.
Charges can be captured directly in WooCommerce
Some merchants choose to set the payment gateway to authorize charges rather than authorize and capture them. However, this requires the user to later log into the payment gateway admin to capture charges. This free extension allows you to optionally capture previously authorized transactions directly from the WooCommerce Edit Orderscreen rather than logging into your PayPal account, saving you an extra step.
The Venmo button is designed to help merchants tap into the mobile-friendly demographic, which spends up to 18% more than other shoppers.4 Generate valuable exposure for your brand through your customers’ social feeds any time they choose to share their purchase. Venmo is automatically presented on mobile devices to cookied Venmo users.
