PayPal Payment Solutions

PayPal is a global leader in online payments and a fast and secure way for your customers to pay online. With PayPal and Magento Open Source, you can accept payments from all major debit and credit cards, and PayPal account holders. Since customers don’t even need a PayPal account to pay with PayPal, both you and your customers can get extra convenience without extra effort.

The PayPal payment methods that are available in Magento, and the method names, are different depending on merchant location. For country-specific PayPal methods, see the list at the end of this chapter. The two PayPal payment methods that can be used all over the world are Express Checkout and PayPal Payments Standard.

PayPal payment methods are mutually exclusive, with the exception of PayPal Express Checkout. You cannot have more than one method enabled at a time. PayPal Express Checkout can be used with other PayPal payment methods except PayPal Payments Standard. PayPal Payments Standard cannot be enabled simultaneously with any other method, including Express Checkout.
