PayPal Payments Advanced
PayPal Payments Advanced allows customers to pay using either a credit card or their PayPal account without leaving your site. Payment information is entered in a form hosted by PayPal and embedded on your checkout page. Your site never touches payment information, which simplifies PCI compliance, and your customers are able to use their PayPal accounts to pay without the extra steps of paying through another site.
This service is available for US and Canadian merchants. Click here for more information regarding PayPal Payments Advanced.
