So im setting up a new Woo Shop and i want to configure PayPal. The last Shops it was ver easy with the old Version. Nowaday youve forced to use other payment gateways "powerd by PayPal" this Gateways are way more expensive then other gateways like Stripe or some others. The localization is the worst ive ever seen. It not finished its bullshit and makes everything way more complicated. HATE IT

Really poor that something as widespread as Paypal can't even get a simple plugin right. I started noticing a massive increase in orders in "Pending Payment" but testing was working for me. A customer reported that Paypal wasn't loading and they couldn't finish the payment. I've contacted support and have been advised that Paypal knows about this + other issues but no plan on fixing it...

Updated review: decided to switch back to "WooCommerce PayPal Checkout Payment Gateway" after getting a lot of "Pending Payment" orders which converted to "canceled". Digging deeper in this, it looks like there is a timeout issue that they are talking about here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/ipn-paypal-settings/ I guess this plugin is not ready yet. I have lost a lot of conversions during the live test. if things work fine with the other checkout plugin, stay there until this plugin is better developed and improved.

Everything worked great for me. For the one-step setup: do not log in with your PayPal account. Go to PayPal Developer an log in with your PayPal account. And use a sandbox business account for the one-step test-installation.

Both the standard Woocommerce paypal checkout gateway (without upgrade) broke my payment methods when my dreamhost server updated to php 7.3! I just updated that, and it works again, but the popup saying "WooCommerce PayPal Payments is a full-stack solution that offers powerful and flexible payment processing capabilities. Expand your business by connecting with over 370+ million active PayPal accounts around the globe. With PayPal, you can sell in 200+ markets and accept 100+ currencies. Plus, PayPal can automatically identify customer locations and offer country-specific, local payment methods. Upgrade now and get access to these great features:", only scares the heck out of me that it will break again. i made nio sales for 3 months because of their broken plugin!
