Questions about PayPal


Recommended Posts



I am setting up payment gateways in WHMCS. I have a PayPal business account and have set up the payment gateway PayPal in WHMCS. I recently discovered there's also 'PayPal Website Payments Pro', to enable clients paying with their credit card. I have a few questions about this:


  • I already have a PayPal business account, set it up and the normal PayPal payment gateway works. Do I need to take extra steps to use my account for PayPal Website Payments Pro?
  • Do I need both the PayPal and PayPal Website Payments Pro payment gateways enabled in WHMCS if I want to enable clients to pay with PayPal and credit card?
  • What is Cardinal 3D?


Thanks! :D

the PayPal Website Payments Pro is £20 a month https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/pro and is different to Paypal Standard


Didn't see that... but now I do and it really sucks. Thanks though!

I'm confused.


https://www.paypal.com/au/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_wp-standard-overview-outside < this page says I can accept credit card payments with PayPal too, which is what I want. But how? I don't see any option to do that.

Still confused. All pages at paypal.com say something different...

https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/referral/paypal-payments-pro?partner_id=PYAF5TQBMFH6N < says that Express Checkout doesn't require a fixed monthly fee but only per transaction.

I now see that if you choose 'I don't have a PayPal account yet', customers can create an account with their credit card. If I understood correctly, with PayPal Website Payments Pro customers can pay without PayPal. But then what is the difference between standard payments and Express Checkout?
