It WON’T work for WooCommerce Subscriptions. Although it says it does, it doesn’t. It duplicates your checkout button, adding a PayPal button besides the buy button you already have at the checkout. I even debugged the issue for them and provided the error “smart_button_validation_error_expected_intent_tokenize” “Expected intent tokenize but got capture” I sent it to their support team (they are CartFlows company) and the support is non-existent. They were able to replicate this issue on their end, and when I asked about a date to fix it, they said that they don’t have a timeframe to fix it. So, it doesn’t work. There are 3 reviews on this plugin, and 2 are bad. I hope this put some rush on the issues to fix, and treat your clients with more respect (I am a CartFlows user). Thanks.
