eShop for WordPress comes with basic PayPal support out of the box. This means that your client gets sent to PayPal to make their payments and has the option of not returning. With eShop PayPal Pro Merchant Gateway plugin, you can collect the payment directly from the checkout page, no redirections to outside servers whatsoever.
For PCI compliance, no Credit Card data gets stored. It is up to you, however, to set up SSL on the checkout page.
Once you activate this plugin, a new section is shown under Settings -> eShop -> Merchant Gateways.
Tick the ‘Accept payment by PayPal Pro’ box and enter your Sandbox and Live PayPal credentials (API Username, API Password, and Signature). If you don’t use PayPal Payments Pro yet, click here to learn more about it.
Tick the credit cards that you want to use – note that PayPal does not allow American Express and Discover in certain regions. Make sure to test those cards before going live. Test credit card numbers can be found here.
Click ‘Save Changes’ and you’re good to go.
When your clients reach the checkout page, they will see the Credit Card option as one of the payment methods. If it is the only active option, the CC fields will be visible. The type of credit card is identified automatically when the clients type in the number. If there are more Payment options, the fields will only be displayed if the clients click on the CC radio button.
The confirmation page will show only the last four digits of the credit card number and card type.
