I don't review plugins often, but this one deserves some kudos. This was the only woo/paypal plugin that I could get to work properly and easily. To top it off, this plugin comes with all the major methods of using paypal as your payment method. Pro/express/advanced/standard etc, and all the ones I'm using worked right from the starting gate. top points to this plugin.

I have a client that has been using paypal for woo for about 3 years on. Recently things have changed as far as what we could use for subscriptions and what was needed since they are pushing their Braintree product. Since I had to reconfigure everything nothing is working properly and the paypal buttons on the site are horrible.

This plugin makes receiving credit card super easy and makes all of the reporting data available in the PayPal Manager. It will help me to real time order status update.
