Based on where you decide to show the PayPal checkout button, your users will see some slight differences in the payflow.
Let’s check how this works on every specific case.
1. Product page
If you enable the PayPal checkout on the product page, your users will only be able to pay with PayPal through the popup window of PayPal checkout. No additional payments are available for payments from the product page (like card payments, Sofort etc.).
Once you click on PayPal Checkout, you will be asked to log into your PayPal account and confirm the payment.
After that, you will be redirected to the checkout page to complete any extra missing fields and finalize the purchase.
2. Cart page
If you enable the PayPal Checkout button to appear on the Cart page, you will be able to see both the PayPal checkout button and the Debit or Credit Card button powered by PayPal.
No additional payments are available for payments from the Cart page (like MyBank, Sofort etc.).
1. If you choose the PayPal Checkout, a popup will open and the customer will be able to authorize the transaction.
Here they can import or edit the shipping addresses and also opt for a payment in installments.
Then, they will be redirected to the Cart page once again, where they can proceed to the checkout and fill out all the other missing checkout fields.
The checkout will be pre-populated with their details imported from the PayPal account, but can be changed here, if they want them to be different.
If the customer adds a new shipping address, it will be automatically saved in their PayPal account as an additional option as well.
2. If you choose Debit or Credit card, you will be able to enter your card details on the Cart page (in the embedded form), authorize the payment and then be directed to the Checkout page to fill out all the empty fields and finalize the purchase.
3. Checkout page
If you enable the PayPal Checkout button to appear on the Checkout page, you will be able to see both the PayPal checkout button and other payment methods available.
Authorize the payment by entering your details either in PayPal or using any of the other available payments, fill out the remaining checkout fields, and then finalize the purchase.
