PayPal Express Checkout

NOTE: With the latest storefront release (v 10.0.20) there are great changes for PayPal Express:

  • If your cart is already using PayPal Express Checkout (EC), then you’ll automatically get the new experience.
  • The new name for Express Checkout is PayPal Checkout.
  • Venmo will appear on mobile when the shopper has the mobile Venmo app installed.
  • Venmo transactions go through PayPal, so merchants do not have to have a separate Venmo account in order to accept Venmo payments.
  • Merchants who do not currently use EC can sign up for a PayPal account and enable PayPal Checkout just as merchants have always done so – there’s no special sign up process or different configuration settings.

Once you have followed the steps in the PayPal Account Creation section and have your PayPal account details, to enable PayPal Checkout (Express):

  1. In the admin console, go to Configuration > Site Setup Wizard.

  2. In the Configure Wallets section, click the configure link to the right of the PayPal Express Checkout entry.

  3. Enter the values you obtained from PayPal for the API Username, API Password, and Signature.

  4. If running version 10.0.0 (this option is not found in version 10.0.1+) then it is required to enable the Use PayPal Express Integrated Checkout option and click Save and Close.

  5. Finally, check the box next to PayPal Express Checkout and then click the Save button at the top or bottom of the page.


NOTE: The Integrated Checkout option is a lightbox overlay (your site is grayed-out behind it) allowing the customer to login and pay
through their PayPal account without appearing to leave the site. This is automatically enabled in version 10.0.1 and is required to be enabled in version 10.0.0

NOTE: Starting in version 10.0.3, it's possible to require phone numbers on PayPal Express orders. To enable this feature, you'll need to 'Require Contact Phone Number' in your Paypal configuration - see this page for more information: https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/My-account-settings-Archive/How-do-I-require-a-phone-number-from-my-customers/td-p/356200
