Enable Pay Later messaging on Salesforce Commerce Cloud

DocsCurrentLast updated: August 26th 2021, @ 2:36:27 pm

Promote PayPal Pay Later offers using messaging and buttons on your Salesforce Commerce Cloud store.

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.
  • Before you enable Pay Later messaging, integrate the Salesforce Commerce Cloud PayPal plugin.
  • 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, no additional content, wording, marketing, or other materials should be created by you to encourage use of this product.

Note: If you enabled billing agreements in Salesforce Commerce Cloud, the webpage won't display the messaging banners.
