    Further clarification: Venmo is available, along with ApplePay, etc., it seems via the Braintree plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/woo-payment-gateway/

    Braintree is yet another PayPal company. It is a payment gateway, with an application process of course, like signing up for a traditional credit card gateway. In other words, not like Paypal. The fees are per-transcation, etc. The reason for such a process is that merchant fraud has been a big problem for credit card banks, more so than customer fraud, over the last decades. As I understand it.

    Note that Google Pay is going through a tough evolution due to this is-it-a-bank or is-it-not ambiguity. Banks are heavily regulated for good reason, and you want your sales to reach your bank account in some way which is safe and legal. (Crypto currency is another matter.) Google Pay wants to go all-mobile from what I’ve read, due to better authentication, and is making that change confusing by keeping the same name for the service.

    Hi @kitchin! I’m glad to see you’re checking in on the Github issue regarding Venmo support in PayPal Checkout. That will be the best place to find the latest available information. At this time, Venmo won’t be available in the extension. When new information becomes available, we’ll share it in the Github report.

    We haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’m going to mark this as resolved – if you have any further questions, you can start a new thread.
