PayPal Payment Solutions for Magento Enterprise Edition

PayPal is a global leader in online payments and a fast and secure way for your customers to pay online. With PayPal and Magento Enterprise Edition, you can accept payments from all major debit and credit cards, and PayPal account holders. As an added convenience, customers can pay with PayPal without even opening a PayPal account.

PayPal Express Checkout and PayPal Payments Standard can be used all over the world. However, some PayPal payment methods and method names may differ according to merchant location. For a list of country-specific PayPal methods, see the Magento Enterprise Edition User Guide.

Because PayPal payment methods are mutually exclusive, you cannot have more than one method enabled at a time—with the exception of PayPal Express Checkout. PayPal Express Checkout can be used with other PayPal payment methods, except PayPal Payments Standard.

PayPal Express Checkout

With PayPal Express Checkout enabled, customers can click the “Checkout with PayPal” button to make a secure payment from the PayPal site. You can use Express Checkout as a standalone solution, or in combination with one of the other solutions.
