    Hey there!

    There’s not really a way to do that at the moment. Sorry about that.

    Really? So the button can only be displayed on the cart page and nowhere else?
    This is strange, there must be a possibility to place the button to a different (woocommerce) page, doesn’t it?

    I’m requesting the same thing.
    I would like the button to go on the checkout page instead of the cart page.

    Reason 1: some people want the option to pay by bank transfer, and the checkout page offers the choice.

    The workaround I’m thinking of doing is to change the text of the WooCommerce checkout button of the cart page from “Proceed to Checkout” to “Proceed To Checkout To Pay By Bank Transfer”, because right now the choice is confusing for people.

    Reason 2: I am using the WooThemes Aweber Subscription plugin which shows on the checkout page. When people use the Paypal Express button, this bypasses the checkout page completely and I am missing on opt-ins.

    This shouldn’t have to be this way, this plugin button SHOULD go on checkout page.

    There is a PayPal Mark option in the settings that will include it on the checkout page. Just check the box next to Enable the PayPal Mark on regular checkout.

    This does not remove the button from the cart page, though, if you’re also after that. I wish that were an option too because having multiple paths for checkout is terribly poor UI that is confusing for the customer.

    Hi Doug,

    Thanks for your suggestion, but this is no good for my purposes.

    With the button is still showing on the cart page, then people who might use it will still bypass the checkout page, and I will be missing out on opt-ins (see my Reason 2 above).
    Additionally, when this button is used, because it is on the cart page, the shipping is not taken into account and customers are NOT being charged for shipping, which is not good. You can see this topic here: .

    So because of all this, I have uninstalled the plugin as it does not solve any problems or add any value (except for PayPal! 🙂 ), it creates problems instead. Many thanks for the tip anyway.
