Hi, is it possible to use the paypal pro as a payment method ? or is just the paypal standard still only supported ?

Why I want the paypal pro is because it has a mobile friendly payment page, where the standard does not.

The paypal pro make the payment occur on the website as opposed to the standard where the payment is done on the paypal secure site. A SSL is required to allow payments to occur on the website. Ecwid says they have the SSL now in place, but their documentation still says it only supports the standard.

I also can not find a payment merchant other than paypal that offers a mobile checkout (google wallet is not available to Canadians).

Hi RISC,

Apologies. I was answering on the basis of PayPal Express and not PayPal Pro.
Pay Pal Pro hasn't been implemented with Ecwid. The idea is up for voting here: http://ideas.ecwid.com/forums/22031-c...

PayPal Pro does work with the Store.

There is one aspect that some have had issue with and that is the fact that the checkout doesn't include the shipping price until PayPal sends the data back to the store. It can feel incomplete but it does calculate it after the purchaser logs into their PayPal account.

You select PayPal Pro on the gateway selection settings.


I haven't specifically looked for Mobile checkout gateways with the Store so I don't know the answer to this.
Thanks Gop, I knew you would be the one to answer this :)

I just checked - I only have the paypal standards option to select, I do not have an option for PayPal Pro

Hello RISC,

I have recently noticed that PayPal have released 2 more options for their e-com gateway and both of these allow payment without jumping back to the PayPal site at all. Ecwid have also acknowledged this and you can see their update in their later blogs. New financing tools from PayPal to help boost your holiday sales. You may have caught up with this before if so apologies.
Hi Gop, thx for this. I am actually using the PayPal standard and it does give me a mobile checkout page as well so all is good.

btw - I changed my Forum nickname to reflect my mobile website business.
