We've been using WC and it's various bolt-on plugins for years, and consider it an integral corner-post type asset, able to accommodate, and not hinder TestoChecker's growth, ultimately cementing it's presence online.
I started to use this plugin a couple of days ago after another one who had a lot of issues. Then I asked support for a minor issue with the button on the checkout page. This guy has fixed the issue releasing an update in just 10 minutes!! He is not human!😜 Thanks.
Wow! This plugin is really great and provide all the PayPal options. Time to time update and working without issue. Thanks for free plugin.
When clicking on Paypal o Credit Card button it appears the loading spinner icon for a few seconds and then nothing. 2022-01-07T18:25:41+00:00 INFO Response Code: 400 2022-01-07T18:25:41+00:00 INFO Response Message: Bad Request 2022-01-07T18:25:41+00:00 INFO Response Body: Array ( [name] => INVALID_REQUEST [message] => Request is not well-formed, syntactically incorrect, or violates schema.

Update: Changed rating from 2 to 1 star. The developer doesn't seem to maintain this plugin anymore. No answers on reported issues anymore!! I opened an issue three months ago and there wasn't any reply until now. The same goes for issues opened by others. So I am wondering if this plugin is still maintained. The plugin is compatible up to WP version 5.6.4 while I am meanwhile running 5.7.2. I am getting annyoing deprecated message due to that and had to install the plugin "Enable jQuery Migrate Helper" just to avoid issues. It seems that now for 5 months there was no activity at all. This could get serious for a plugin that handles payment.
