PayPal Checkout Flow

  • Updated

The PayPal Checkout Flow extension allows you to keep your existing checkout while offering PayPal payment options in an alternate checkout powered by Bold Checkout.




PayPal Checkout Flow runs alongside your existing checkout. Once enabled, a Checkout with PayPal button appears on the cart page. From here, your customers can choose to check out with PayPal or proceed to your Adobe Commerce checkout.

When Checkout with PayPal is selected, your customers are directed an alternate checkout payment page where they can choose their preferred method of payment based on the available PayPal options for your store.
