    Hi @ans11

    And the problem is that smart button does not appear in mini cart window when I am in the home page or category page. It appears in mini cart window when I am on single product page.

    I was able to see this problem when I added a product to the cart. The PayPal Checkout button was showing up in the mini cart page when I was at the single product page, but when I went to the shop/category page, it went missing: And the problem is that smart button does not appear in mini cart window when I am in the home page or the category

    page, as you can see in this screenshot:

    It appears in mini cart window when I am on the single product page, however.

    I was not able to replicate the problem in my tests though:

    Upon checking your page’s source code, I noticed that the CSS wrappers of the PayPal button are there in the mini cart, they just go missing in the home and category pages:

    I found a few console warnings in the home page: which seem to be coming from this plugin:

    Can you deactivate that and see if the PayPal button reappears in the mini cart in other pages?

    Thank you sir
    I have deactivated the currency switcher plugin but the problem remains there. Please suggest some other way to resolve this problem.
    I am waiting for your response.

    Hi @ans11!

    That’s odd.

    Could you please send me a copy of your site’s System Status? You can find it via WooCommerce > Status. Select “Get system report” and then “Copy for support”. Once you’ve done that, you can paste the message in your reply, and send it to us.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for getting the System Status report to us.

    There isn’t anything that seems to stand out to me. Can you try a conflict test for possible plugin or theme conflicts? I’d recommend doing the test in a stating environment. Here is the step by step instruction that can help you with conflict testing:

    Let us know how it goes!

    Can I do this locally so that my live website will not be disturbed.

    I suggest making a staging site and test there. If your host does not have an option to make a staging site, I suggest using to make a copy of your site.
