Paypal is a popular multi-currency Payment Gateway which includes a free service called Paypal Express Checkout and a premium service called PayPal Payments Pro. PayPal is a truly global payments platform that is available to people in 203 markets, allowing customers to get paid in more than 100 currencies, withdraw funds to their bank accounts in 57 currencies and hold balances in their PayPal accounts in 26 currencies.
PayPal Express Checkout
PayPal Express Checkout is perhaps the quickest way to start accepting credit card payments for your bookings and reservations with Checkfront. Unlike most payment processors, Paypal Express Checkout for business requires no setup fees, no subscription fees, and no lengthy approval process. It does, however, require that users process transactions through the Paypal payment interface. This means that when it comes time to make a payment, your customer will be redirected from Checkfront to PayPal and then back again once the transaction is complete.
Paypal Payments Pro
Paypal Payments Pro is a robust payment processing system capable of meeting most businesses processing needs. Unlike Paypal Express Checkout, you have full control over the checkout process, including a fully branded and integrated payment page through Checkfront. When completing transactions through PayPal Payments Pro, the customer does not leave the Checkfront interface and can process their payments seamlessly and professionally through your website.
