What a total disaster. I should sue you for this mess. Getting this set up took me down this never-ending rabbit-hole that ended up creating such a mess that I had my account flagged. I am currently with a limitation on my account, and cant withdraw money until I get re-verified. Had to resend all my paperwork... If verification takes more than a few hours and I continue to have my money blocked from withdrawal, I shall be contacting a lawyer about this. Somebody PLEASE come up with an alternative for Woocommerce. This plugin is a total mess and puts business at risk.

Easy to hook up - just ensure you have Admin privileges on your website before you start and it auto-fills all the details for you automatically (the plugin allows you to access the page as a Shop Owner and everything seems to work, but finally fails without error). You absolutely need Admin privileges for this to work. We've had 2 clients experience problems using PayPal as a payment method (who didn't have problems before). The error displayed to the client is a generic one and no errors are reported for us to trace (logging also isn't recommended on a production website), so not really sure how to troubleshoot this one. We'll keep using it on one of our sites to keep an eye on it since it looks great. The new payment options are exciting (Pay in instalments, Venmo, etc.) and the payment interface is great!

We already had PayPay account connection just fine on our site and now this plugin requires us to connect all over again -- but we can't. There are all sorts of new screens with requirements and our PayPal account needs to be updated, ownership established, new ID uploaded. We're creating an account with Stripe. Run away from this "update".

It was creating multiple orders and leaving them in a processing state. Do not adopt this plugin until they work out the bugs.

Only installed this as the "WooCommerce PayPal Checkout Gateway" was pushing it on the plugins page saying it's an upgrade. Wish I'd read the reviews first. It just wouldn't complete the connect process as others have said. Did finally manage to get it working with manual connection settings. Run through some test orders, for some reason the PayPal button disappears when I change the postage amount (that could be plugin, theme or some other conflict). Doesn't seem to do too much more than what we've already got, so decided to remove it and stick with what we've got that's well tested. Giving 2 stars because it did finally work, it'd get 3 but it's annoying me more being pushed in the plugins screen with no option to dismiss it.
