Usually, all you’ll need to activate it is your PayPal login or PayPal API credentials.

Questions and answers

What is PCI compliance and do I have to worry about it?

Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standards are minimum requirements for protecting your customers’ card information. PCI compliance is required for all merchants that touch, store, transmit or process credit card details. Express Checkout takes your customers to a PayPal-hosted checkout page which means you never see their card information.

Yes. You can use Express Checkout in combination with your existing payment solution to attract new customers who prefer to pay with PayPal, or as a standalone payment product on your site.
