New PayPal Module (Latest API 2.0) Configuration in Advanced Variant for osCommerce 2-based systems

While osCommerce 4 has already been released, many shop owners continue to rely on systems based on osCommerce 2. To ensure seamless payment processing for these users, we are thrilled to announce the release of our new PayPal module, complete with support for Express and APM (Alternative Payment Method) options, specifically tailored for osCommerce 2-based systems.

Configuring the New PayPal Module:

2. Proceed to the "Click here to configure" link.

3. Navigate to "Account details" and "advanced settings."

4. Click on the "Subscribe" button next to "Required Webhooks."

Enabling Credit Card Information Fields: 

To display credit card information fields on the checkout page, ensure you check the box next to "Status" (default settings are pre-selected). Click "Save" in the pop-up window, and then scroll down and click "Save" again on the page.

Empowering Your Payment Experience:

Our new PayPal module boasts an array of features to enhance your payment process:

1. Accept PayPal Rest payments securely.

2. Disable PayPal for guest checkouts when only virtual products are in the cart.

3. Display PayPal buttons on relevant pages, with the option to customize their appearance.

4. Showcase PayPal Pay Later info, available worldwide.

5. Save orders before payment for easy tracking.

6. Choose between different transaction methods: (pre)authorize or automatic payment withdrawal.

7. Set pending and paid order statuses for clear order management.
