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. And, because we handle your customers’ card information for you, you can forget about the time, cost and headache of maintaining PCI compliance.

I already have a payment gateway. Can I still add Express Checkout?

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.

Can I use Express Checkout to sell internationally?

Yes. When you use Express Checkout, your international customers can pay you with PayPal, their credit card or debit card.
