One integration, multiple payment options

With the recommended PayPal Checkout integration you can offer a variety of payment methods directly in checkout. Use the built-in familiarity, security, and trust that PayPal is known for and empower your customers to pay from their PayPal account balance, Venmo account, PayPal stored credits cards, or enter new Credit Card details by clicking on the smart payment buttons. PayPal will use your settings, geography, and device type to determine what payment options a user is eligible to use. Payment buttons supported through this integration are:

  1. PayPal - For using a PayPal balance or stored payment
  2. Venmo - For using a Venmo balance or stored payment
  3. Pay Later - For offering interest free short term payment plans or longer term financing options 
  4. Debit or Credit Card - For accepting debit and credit cards through PayPal's embedded payment form

Financing options without the headache

Pay Later, formerly known as PayPal Credit, lets merchants extend financing opportunities to their customers, which can be advertised on Add to Cart forms or directly on a product page. Merchants get paid up front while customers get the convenience of spreading out payments over several months. Offers are dynamically determined by PayPal and displayed on product pages or in checkout.
