Accept credit cards online using your merchant account.

A payment gateway links your website to your processing network and merchant account. Like most gateways, Payflow Payment Gateway handles all major credit and debit cards. What makes our gateway different is the low rates and incremental sales boost from offering PayPal and PayPal Credit payment options on your site.

How it works

A payment gateway is a service that sends credit card information from a website to the credit card payment networks for processing, and returns transaction details and responses from the payment networks back to the website. Depending on which of our payment gateway options you choose, credit card information is sent either from a checkout page hosted by PayPal (when Payflow Link is used), or from a checkout page hosted on your own website (when Payflow Pro is used).

Two gateway options, simple pricing.

PayPal has two gateway options that give you different levels of customization for your online checkout pages.

Payflow Link: $0/month

Checkout hosted by PayPal.
At checkout, your customers enter their payment details on a secure, PCI-compliant template hosted by PayPal. You can choose to integrate our embedded template (which sits right in your website), or you can choose a customizable full-page template. All templates include PayPal and PayPal Credit, so your customers have more options to pay.


Payflow Pro: $25/month

Unlimited checkout customization.
Payflow Pro is fully customizable, so you can build a checkout experience as unique as your business. Everything is on the table, from language and layout to page sequence and PCI compliance options. You can add a PayPal button to help drive more sales, or use our hosted pages and offer PayPal Credit, too.
