I installed WooCommerce in a lower version. Nevertheless, can I use PayPal Plus for WooCommerce?

No, the plugin is only compatible with WooCommerce versions >= 3.0. We advise to make an update. But don’t forget to make a backup of your installation before. For making a backup use our free WordPress backup plugin BackWPup.

What do I have to pay attention to when I use a PayPal account for several shops?

It’s mandatory to assign a unique invoice prefix for each shop in the PayPal Plus for WooCommerce settings. Otherwise, PayPal won’t accept orders with the same invoice number.

With PayPal Plus for WooCommerce, which payment methods can I integrate into my shop?

With our plugin, you can integrate all those payment methods offered by PayPal: paying with your PayPal account, via direct debit, via credit card or paying via invoice.

In my shop, the payment method pay upon invoice is not offered. What do I have to do?

Your PayPal vendor account needs to be activated by PayPal in order to offer the payment method pay upon invoice. This takes place after verification by PayPal and may last a couple of weeks.

Can I use PayPal Plus for digital products?

Yes, it is possible, except when using the payment option “upon invoice”.

How can I hide the option to “pay upon invoice”?

As a vendor, you are asked explicitly whether you want to have “invoice” as a payment option or not when signing up for PayPal Plus.

Does PayPal Plus allow subscription payments?

At the moment, subscription payments are not possible with PayPal Plus.

Is payment by installments possible with PayPal Plus?

Payment by installments is a separate product from PayPal Plus, and therefore requires a separate integration. Moreover, each vendor needs to be activated by PayPal individually. If both integrations, payment by installments and PayPal Plus, are used, payment by installments appears as another payment option under PayPal Plus. But payment by installments can also run as a single integration. In fact, payment by installments is theoretically possible, but there is no functional module for WooCommerce at the moment.

Is it possible to offer payment via credit card or via direct debit only?

No. The only payment option you can add or remove individually is purchase on account.

Do vendors have the same guarantees for all payment options as with the classic PayPal?

Yes, all PP+ payment options do have the vendor protection.

Does a vendor get his money directly no matter the used payment option?

Vendors usually get the money directly after the transaction, no matter which of the four PP+ payment options has been used.

Does PayPal Plus work for international transactions, too?

At the moment, PayPal Plus can only be used by vendors in Germany. But their buyers can buy and pay worldwide.

Reviews

Works as intended, great support

Had some small starting problems, but support was very fast and helpful to help me fix my settings, after that the Plugin worked perfect.

Thanks for great support!

Majority of features only for Germany

It’s a plugin that builds around the PayPal Plus services.
Some features of that service requires having your business in Germany. I couldn’t built it in my site, maybe because of the PayPal Plus itself, I don’t know. The main thing that didn’t work for me, the reason is still unknown.

The plugin developer(s) are prompt thou. As I said, the problem may occurred to me because of Paypal Plus services and not because of this plugin – although since they work with this service, I would assume that they know its issues and may have some clue for me what should I do to solve the occurring problem with it.

Großartiger Support

Hatte Probleme mit dem Cbeckout. Der offizielle Paypalsupport konnte mir nicht mehr helfen. Eine kurze Frage hier jedoch, und gerade mal ein paar stunden später hat man mir bei meinem Problem individuell helfen können.
Die Moderatoren hier verdienen großen Respekt. Besten Dank nochmal!

Sehr zufriedenstellend!

Seit erstmaliger Installation immer schneller, freundlich-geduldiger und effizienter Support! Plugin funktioniert gut, auch dank laufender Weiterentwicklung. Vielen Dank!
