DocsCurrentLast updated: September 30th 2021, @ 5:56:39 pm

Promote PayPal Pay Later offers using messaging and buttons on your Magento store with the IWD plugin.

PayPal offers short-term, interest-free payments and other special financing options that buyers can use to buy now and pay later. You get paid up-front, and there are no additional costs.

Pay Later messaging includes Pay in 4, which Australian buyers can use to pay for purchases of $30 to $1,500 in four, interest-free payments.

Know before you begin

  • Before you begin, learn more about Pay Later offers.
  • Pay Later messaging is enabled for new merchants. If you're an existing merchant, enable the messaging.
  • You are eligible to promote PayPal Pay in 4 if you are a PayPal merchant with an Australian-facing website and after making a one-time payment integration. Reference Transactions or Recurring Payment integrations are not eligible, as well as certain merchant categories (such as gambling or foreign exchange).
  • Please note that while this option provides messaging that can be displayed on your website to help promote this feature to your customers, not additional content, wording, marketing, or other materials should be created by you to encourage use of this product.

How it works

These are sample pages that have Pay Later messaging enabled for webpages and mobile devices.


This integration provides the following options:

Customizable messaging Merchants can change the logo type, logo position, and text color for Pay Later messaging.
Messaging display options By default, Pay Later messaging displays on the Mini-cart, Shopping Cart, and Checkout pages.
