Support » Plugin: WooCommerce PayPal Checkout Payment Gateway » Is this plugin paypal hosted or paypal direct?

    We’ve recieved an email from Paypal asking us to make sure our paypal checkout is compliant with PSD2 (european directive).

    According to them, if we have a paypal hosted solution then we need not do anything as paypal will make us compliant. If however we use a paypal direct integration we have to update the checkout with a CardinalCommerce 3D Plugin.

    https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/psd2 explains.

    Would someone be able to tell me if this plugin is a paypal hosted or direct service?

    Hi @chrischoices,

    Would someone be able to tell me if this plugin is a paypal hosted or direct service?

    This is a PayPal Hosted solution as you have to have a PayPal Business account and tie in the plugin to your existing PayPal settings. It opens a pop up window that goes to PayPal to complete the transaction; the difference is the window vs. going directly to PayPal and then returning to the site. Otherwise it behaves as a Hosted solution.

    If you have any other questions or concerns please let me know!

    Thanks @nixiack8, this is very helpful!
