What is PayPal Checkout and how can I get paid using this solution?

Add seamless checkouts to your site for better sales conversion

If you want to give your customers a shopping experience that is smooth and uninterrupted, PayPal Checkout is for you. This add-on allows you to receive payments securely from India while keeping shoppers on your website or mobile app throughout the process. A few clicks or taps is all that is needed from purchase to payment. You can even customise the experience to make it more seamless.

What is PayPal Checkout

PayPal Checkout integrates the checkout process onto your website to make payment quicker and easier for your customers. They have the option to pay using a preferred debit or credit card, or sign into their PayPal account to skip typing in their billing and shipping information. Like PayPal’s other payment solutions, there are no monthly or setup fees. You only pay when a sale is made.

How does PayPal Checkout work

When customers confirm their order, they are directed to PayPal where they choose to sign in to their account if they have one. Once they review and complete their purchases, they’ll be brought back to your page. You can also customise the checkout process to ensure the shopping experience feels smooth and uninterrupted.

STEP 3: If you do not have a shopping cart, you can add the button directly into your website.
