New PayPal Payment Method Released for Pressero Available on 1/10/22

Aleyant is excited to announce PayPal as a new payment method for Pressero, available on 1/10/22. 

PayPal Checkout is a secure, all-in-one payments solution for your business. This new payment method offers payment types, including PayPal, credit and debit cards, and local payment methods. It helps enable growth into new markets and offers a seamless checkout experience. In addition, this release offers Pay Later options, including PayPal Pay in 4* and PayPal Credit** to your customers at no additional cost to your business. Pay Later allows your customers to pay over time while you get paid up front. 

The new payment method will require Pressero customers to have a PayPal business account. 

For Pressero customers with existing PayPal payment methods – “PayFlow Pro Hosted” and “PayPal – Website Payments Standard” – these will continue to work. However, with this release, Pressero customers will no longer be able to create new payment methods using PayFlow Pro Hosted or PayPal – Website Payments Standard. If you subscribe to these services through PayPal, you will still be able to use them, but going forward you won’t have different sets of instructions on how to configure them depending on which PayPal service you use. It’s one set of instructions going forward. 

The PayPal payment method is live now on Pressero.
