PayPal Direct payment plug-in is direct credit card payment plug-in which lets customers shop and pay directly in PBA-S system with their credit cards (without redirecting to PayPal site).

PayPal Standard and PayPal Express checkout payment plug-ins are redirect plug-ins, payment is performed on PayPal side:

  • PayPal Standard plugin sends all information with payment details to PayPal server and it is visible in PayPal form - PayPal standard plugin lets customers shop on your PBA-S Store and checkout on PayPal.
  • PayPal Express checkout fetching payment ID from PayPal first, Payment form with Payment ID appears in PBA-S Control panel to checkout and redirecting customer to PayPal to pay this payment, so PayPal Express checkout works in the following way:

    • after selecting products to purchase, customers click Checkout with PayPal in PBA-S Control Panel/Store.
    • they are transferred to PayPal, where they select their payment method, as well as the correct shipping and billing address, then are returned to your website to complete their purchase.
    • PayPal automatically provides PBA-S system with the shipping address, email, and other customer information needed to fulfill order in PBA-S system.
