Implement the Pay Now Experience


Important: PayPal supports these Checkout integrations:

  • Smart Payment Buttons, which use the PayPal JavaScript SDK. Valid from February 2019 for new integrations.
  • Checkout with checkout.js. Valid before February 2019. Customers who use checkout.js can access reference and support material in this Checkout guide. However, PayPal does not update checkout.js with new features and enhancements.

Simplify checkout by using the Pay Now button. Use the button if payment is completed on the PayPal review page, as for digitally delivered items without shipping costs.

Use the Continue button if payment is completed on your site to include shipping, tax, and other additional items before submitting the order.

Mobile Examples
