PayPal Express Checkout

PayPal Express Checkout helps boost sales by giving your customers the ability to pay by credit
card or from the security of their personal PayPal accounts. During checkout, the customer is
redirected to the secure PayPal site to complete the payment information. The customer is then
returned to your store to complete the remainder of the checkout process. Choosing Express
Checkout adds the familiar PayPal button to your store, which has been reported to increase
Customers with current PayPal accounts can make a purchase in a single step, by clicking the
“Check out with PayPal” button. Express Checkout can be added as a standalone, or added to
an existing PayPal solution. If you already accept credit cards online, you can offer Express
Checkout as an additional option to attract new customers who prefer to pay with PayPal.
PayPal Express Checkout can be used as a standalone, or in combination with one of PayPal’s
All-In-One solutions.

Checkout Workflow

With Express Checkout, the customer is redirected to the PayPal site to complete the
transaction. Unlike other payment methods, PayPal Express Checkout allows the customer to
check out at the beginning of the usual checkout flow. With the PayPal Express Checkout
enabled, the “Check out with PayPal” button is available on the product page, in the shopping
cart, and mini shopping cart. Clicking the button redirects the customer to the PayPal website
to review the purchase information. Customers must log in to their PayPal accounts to
complete the transaction. The payment system uses the customer’s billing and shipping
information from the customer’s PayPal account. The customer is then redirected back to the
Magento Review Order page. After the customer places the order in Magento, the payment
information is submitted to PayPal and the payment transaction is settled.
If the customer uses the one-page checkout and selects the Express Checkout payment method,
the customer is redirected to PayPal during the Payment Review process, just before the sales
order is submitted.
Express Checkout method of payment is unavailable if the customer chooses to check out the
products from the shopping cart to multiple addresses. The store administrator cannot place
an order using the Express Checkout method of payment, because it is also unavailable from
the Admin.
