POWr has recently launched Smart Payment Buttons as part of the PayPal Checkout in our Form Builder plugin.
What are Smart Payment Buttons?
Smart Payment Buttons by PayPal are designed to improve the checkout experience and improve checkout conversions. With this integration, you can give customers the option to pay with PayPal, Venmo, and major credit cards and debit cards - on almost any device - when they checkout with PayPal.
How does it work?
When a user selects the PayPal checkout button, once they have logged into PayPal to checkout, Smart Payment Buttons presents customers with the most relevant payment methods automatically. For example, if a customer is shopping from their mobile device and PayPal recognizes them as a Venmo user, PayPal will automatically show the Venmo payment option.
How do I enable Smart Payment Buttons?
If you are creating a new PayPal Button or eCommerce plugin, Smart Payment Buttons will be enabled automatically if you connect to PayPal. If you wish to turn them off and only offer regular PayPal payments as an option (rather than Venmo, credit or debit cards), simply switch the Smart Payment Buttons toggle to Off.
If you’re accepting payments in an existing Form Builder plugin and you would like to enable Smart Payment Buttons in the PayPal Checkout, simply switch the toggle to On.
If you do have Smart Buttons enabled, your visitors will see the PayPal Credit option in their Checkout window as well:
Will my existing Forms with payments be affected?
The experience for your visitors will be tweaked slightly due to the new update. All forms with payments will now see a checkout window, as shown in the screenshot above. Previously, a Form with payment enabled would open a new PayPal window for checkout.
