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 growing your business.
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
The 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 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 wherever and however they shop, making it easy to complete 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 Order screen rather than logging into your PayPal account, saving you an extra step.
Customizable checkout look and feel
Update your checkout experience to match your brand’s style. You have the flexibility to change the button shape, size, color, and layout for a tailored experience at every step of the checkout flow.
Venmo (U.S. Only)
Venmo helps merchants reach mobile shoppers. Users can share their purchase with friends, increasing your brand’s exposure. In fact, 82% of users would consider making a purchase after seeing a retailer mentioned by a family member or friend on their Venmo feed.2
