PayPal Express Checkout is an advanced program from PayPal that makes your checkout process quicker and more trustful. When a store is using PayPal Express Checkout, the buyer's shopping process will be shortened to 4 steps:

  • Visits your website and selects their items

 All steps will be done directly on the Checkout Page. Also, shipping address & phone number will be prefilled with the address in their PayPal account.
