Paypal is a popular multi-currency Payment Gateway which includes a free service called Paypal Express Checkout and an API-based solution called Website Payments Pro. PayPal is a truly global payments platform that is available to people in markets worldwide, allowing customers to get paid in more than 100 currencies, withdraw funds to their bank accounts in more than 50 currencies and hold balances in their PayPal accounts in over 25 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.
Website Payments Pro
Website Payments Pro is an API-based solution that lets merchants and developers accept credit and debit cards directly on their website.
Website Payment Pro is no longer supported by Checkfront in the European Union (EU) or for any new accounts. We do not support the next generation solution PayPal Payments Pro at this time.
Existing Website Payment Pro integrations from accounts outside the European Union (EU) will continue to be supported.
