Announcing our latest integration with PayPal

We’ve teamed up with PayPal to bring you and your customers the latest integration packed full of business-boosting features. And, like us, it’s now completely mobile!  

What’s so good about the latest version? 

  • We’ve already said it – It’s mobile! Our previous version of PayPal wasn’t optimised for mobile, so this latest version provides a much more streamlined set-up flow. 
  • More checkout options. Payment can be taken from a wider range of cards and payment systems, like Venmo. (If you’re in the US you’ll love this!) 
  • Faster set up. The latest version makes it even quicker to set up a business account, so your customers can get started in minutes.
  • Addition security. PayPal provides protection for both buyers and sellers. The newest version has been updated to include additional security layers to comply with the latest EU regulations.
