This add-on lets you accept payments from your members via PayPal Express Checkout.
- When using PayPal Express, the user experience is very similar to PayPal Standard, plus it adds a layer of extra security
- Both gateways allow you to accept one time as well as recurring payments from your members
- PayPal Express Checkout (with Reference Transactions activated) allows Payments with Sign-up Fees and Free Trials
For this add-on to work as expected you’ll also need to have installed:
- Paid Member Subscriptions – version 1.5.0 or higher
- PayPal Business Account – Business accounts allow you to accept all payment types for low fees and to accept payment from customers without PayPal accounts. Business Accounts include all of the benefits of Standard or Premier accounts as well as other special features
- SSL Certificate – mandatory in order to process payments
