We’re making the following changes to the PayPal Advanced Credit and Debit Card Agreement (previously the Website Payments Pro Hosted Solution and Virtual Terminal Agreement):

  • We have changed the name of the PayPal Website Payments Pro Hosted Solution and Virtual Terminal Agreement. The new name of this agreement is the PayPal Advanced Credit and Debit Card Agreement. PayPal Website Payments Pro Hosted Solution will now be referred to as “Advanced Credit and Debit Card Payments.” The new name of this agreement reflects this change.
