Promote PayPal Pay Later offers using messaging 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 include Pay in 4X, which eligible French buyers can use to pay for purchases of 30€ to 2,000€ in four 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 Pay in 4X if you are a France-based PayPal merchant with a France-facing website and a one-time payment integration. Reference Transaction or Recurring Payment integrations are not eligible, as well as certain merchant categories (such as digital goods or non-physical goods).
    Please note that while messaging can be displayed on your website to help promote Pay Later offers to your customers, no additional content, wording, marketing, or other material should be created by you to encourage use of this product. PayPal reserves the right to take action in accordance with the User Agreement.

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