PayPal is an online payment service that lets shoppers use their PayPal account to make online purchases. Shoppers store their credit or debit cards in their PayPal account, and use that account to pay.

Once you integrate the PayPal payment method, you can present PayPal's Smart Payment Buttons to shoppers in your payment form.

You can present a PayPal button for all supported countries. In the US and the United Kingdom, you can also present a PayPal Credit button.
