What is Website Payments Standard (WPS)

Website Payments Standard is a PayPal Checkout button you can add to your website or mobile app to securely accept debit, credit and PayPal payments. It is a faster and easier way if you do not want advanced programming involved, and gives your customers the option of paying without a PayPal account.

How does WPS work

All you have to do is copy our HTML code for the Checkout button and paste it on your website. It’s that simple. Then we’ll take care of the checkout process and security, and once the transaction is done, we’ll send your customers back to your website. Best part, there are no setup or monthly fees. You only need to pay a small fee when you make a sale.
