    Is there a way to modify the plugin files so that PayPal’s “Pay Later” button doesn’t show up? I’m using this to sell an item for $20, so having an installment type of payment is a little silly.

    The Pay in 4 is PayPal’s Buy Now, Pay Later Interest-Free Installments Option. This is controlled through your PayPal account. Unfortunately it has nothing to do with our plugin.

    You can read more about this PayPal payment option in the following documentation.

    Kind regards.

    Thanks for the info, I was trying to find out how to disable it in PayPal but not finding much help, although I read somewhere that you can disable it by using the disable-funding parameter in the JS. Maybe I misunderstood what I read.

    I don’t understand why it’s showing up on a $20 purchase when it’s only supposed to show up on purchases over $30 though.

    Hi, your best option is to get in contact with PayPal support about this issue. Let me know what they say.

    Thank you.

    Try checking the following checkbox in the “Disable Funding” section of our plugin’s settings:

    PayPal Credit

    That should disable the standard “Pay Later” option (which is really PayPal credit).

    The PayPal’s pay in 4 (their buy now pay later option is little bit different than the PayPal credit). I think the pay in 4 option can be controlled from your PayPal account.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Thanks, I did try that and it disabled the Pay Later button but also disabled the Venmo button so I just get the PayPal button. I tried it the other way, checking the Venmo option and unchecking the PayPal Credit one and it shows two buttons, PayPal and Buy Later.

    And just before I posted this response I tried it again and it WORKED! I don’t know what happened – maybe a glitch from PayPal earlier or something.

    Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction and making me try it again lol. Appreciate the quick response.
