WooCommerce PayPal Express Checkout Payment Gateway

Description

This is a PayPal Express Payment Gateway for WooCommerce.

PayPal Express allows you to securely sell your products and subscriptions online using In-Context Checkout to help you meet security requirements without causing your theme to suffer. In-Context Checkout uses a modal iFrame, hosted on PayPal’s servers, that overlays the checkout form and provides a secure means for your customers to enter their account information.

Also, with Integrated PayPal Setup (Easy Setup), connecting to PayPal is as simple as clicking a button – no complicated API keys to cut and paste.

Screenshots

  • Click the "Click Here to Set Up Your PayPal Account" button. If you want to test before goes live, you can switch the Environment, above the button, to Sandbox.
  • API credentials will be set after Easy Setup. Or, you can set that manually.
  • Checkout with PayPal directly from the Cart.

Terrible Support

Plugin was working fine, however, after receiving the wrost support in my life on a support ticket I decided to stop using this plugin.

Anyone who would like to take a look at the support ticket I am refering can take a look at below url:

NEED FIXED, Current version doesn’t work

I would happily change this to a 5 star review if the current bugs get fixed.

1.) If a repeat customer logins with paypal on the cart page, they’ll get the following error message on the checkout page: “An account is already registered with your email address. please login”

This error message occurs even if a new email address is added to the email field.

I’ve seen this issue prevent a number of customers from purchasing in the past using woocommerce, not just paypal users.

Ideally, woocommerce should allow repeat customers to be able checkout as a guests (as long as guest checkout is enabled on the website).

2.) If the customer logs in using paypal on the cart page & tries to purchase a subscription, they get the following error message on the checkout page: “invalid recurring shipping method”.

3.) Why redirect the customer to the checkout page? It just adds an additional step to the checkout process, which causes more friction. Other paypal plugins allow the customer to place the order right from the paypal pop up screen. This would be the ideal scenario.
