WooCommerce PayPal Checkout Payment Gateway


This is a PayPal Checkout Payment Gateway for WooCommerce.

PayPal Checkout allows you to securely sell your products and subscriptions online using In-Context Checkout to help you meet security requirements without causing your theme to suffer. In-Context Checkout uses a modal window, hosted on PayPal’s servers, that overlays the checkout form and provides a secure means for your customers to enter their account information.

Also, with Integrated PayPal Setup (Easy Setup), connecting to PayPal is as simple as clicking a button – no complicated API keys to cut and paste.

Captures d’écran

  • Click the "Setup or link an existing PayPal account" button. If you want to test before going live, you can switch the Environment, above the button, to Sandbox.
  • API credentials will be set after linking, or you can set them manually.
  • See PayPal button settings below.
  • Payer avec PayPal directement depuis la page panier.
  • And without leaving the store.
  • Confirm details after clicking "Continue".
  • Choose PayPal from regular checkout page.
  • Choose PayPal from single product page.
  • Initiate checkout from mini-cart.


Exigences minimales

  • WordPress 4.4 or greater

Installation automatique

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type « WooCommerce PayPal Checkout » and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Installation manuelle

The manual installation method involves downloading our plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favorite FTP application. The
WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Mise à jour

Les mises à jour automatiques devraient fonctionner à merveille. Par contre, comme toujours, assurez-vous de faire une sauvegarde de votre site juste au cas où.

Si, par hasard, vous rencontrez des problèmes avec les pages boutique / catégorie après une mise à jour, vous devez simplement vider les permaliens en visitant WordPress > Réglages > Permaliens et appuyer « enregister ». Cela devrait ramener les choses à la normale.


Cette extension fonctionne-t-elle avec les cartes de crédit ou juste PayPal ?

This plugin supports payments using both credit and debit cards as well as PayPal. The new Smart Payment Buttons feature dynamically displays PayPal, Venmo (US Only), PayPal Credit, or other local payment options* in a single stack—without needing to leave the merchant’s website.

*PayPal Checkout features may not be available in all countries.

Cette extension supporte-t-elle « PayPal Checkout » à partir de la vue du panier ?

Oui !

Does this support both production mode and sandbox mode for testing?

Yes it does – production and sandbox mode is driven by how you connect. You may choose to connect in either mode, and disconnect and reconnect in the other mode whenever you want.

IT WAS BAD in the past, I am trying it again and it seems GREAT NOW !


I have been trying all Woocommerce Paypal plugins for years, all were bad, including this one.

After having problems with the 2 other acceptable Paypal plugins, I tried this official woocommerce paypal plugin again, and it seems to be ok now.

I do not know since when, but there is now an option to have a yellow « buy now » Paypal button on all products pages, the function called Paypal Express, so this plugin now seems to have all the essential required functions.

I will keep it on all my shops for a while and report if there is any problem, but it seems really safe now.

If you are reading this and want an update, post a message here and I will tell you what happened since !

Thank you for the plugin !


Funciona perfectamente, solo hay configurarlo en 1 minuto. Los botones no son obligatorios y lo mejor de todo con un solo click consigues la api.

Works for me

I saw there are quite a few negative reviews.
Don’t know why it’s crashing for them, for me this plugin is working just fine on WordPress 4.9.5
