1. Benefits of upgrading to Paypal Express Checkout
Paypal Express Checkout's clean and modern user interface enables your customers to complete their payments easily!
Stop losing sales from checkout drop-offs! Even Paypal has recommended that we switch all our merchants over to Paypal Express Checkout for a smoother checkout. It's ALL about the eCommerce checkout experience after all!
2. Upgrade to Paypal Express Checkout in two steps!
Before you begin:
- Do ensure you have your Paypal business account login details ready (i.e. the Paypal account which you linked to Paypal Classic).
- You can go to https://www.paypal.com/signin to reset your Paypal login password if you do not remember your password.
Upgrading from Paypal Classic to Paypal Express Checkout in two steps:
- Go to the Payment section of your Oddle web dashboard and turn the PayPal Classic payment option toggle off.
- Enable the PayPal Express Checkout toggle, enter your Paypal business account and click Link to Paypal. You will be re-directed to Paypal and prompted to enter your Paypal password. Click on Grant Permission to complete the setup.
Only one Paypal payment option should be used on your Oddle Shop at any point in time.
3. What will happen to Paypal Classic after 30 June 2019
Our Customer Success team will be contacting you from now until 30 June 2019 to assist you in upgrading to Paypal Express Checkout at no extra cost! We are unable to automatically link your Paypal account to Paypal Express Checkout as Paypal requires you to grant authorisation permissions.
The Paypal Classic payment option will be removed from Oddle after 30 June 2019. You are advised to upgrade from Paypal Classic to Paypal Express Checkout as soon as possible to avoid disruption to your business.
