Encrypted Website Payments

Thinking of adding a PayPal button as a payment option on your site?

  • Our anti-fraud measures lead the industry by complying with cardholder data security requirements (PCI). Encrypted payments protect against fraud by stopping 3rd parties from modifying your payment buttons.
  • Encrypting happens by default when you create PayPal payment buttons. You can also set your Website Payment Preferences in your profile to only allow encrypted buttons, which protects you further from fraud.
