Display other payment methods


Last updated: Apr 26th, 12:06am

You can also use marks to automatically show images for all PayPal payment options, such as PayPal, Venmo, Pay Later, and debit and credit cards. For more information, see Marks.

You need a developer account to get sandbox credentials

PayPal uses the following REST API credentials, which you can get from the developer dashboard:

  • Client ID: Authenticates your account with PayPal and identifies an app in your sandbox.
  • Client secret: Authorizes an app in your sandbox. Keep this secret safe and don't share it.

How it works

  1. You add marks and radio buttons to your checkout page that show PayPal and other payment options.
  2. Your payer selects a payment method.
  3. Other payment methods are hidden

Show PayPal and other payment methods

  1. Modify the components in your script so they contain buttons and marks.
  2. Create a label for PayPal.
  3. Show the PayPal marks and buttons with the PayPal radio button.
  4. Create a label and radio button for other payment methods.
  5. Add an event listener to check for changes to the radio buttons.
  6. Show and hide payment options based on the payer's selection.
