PayPal Website Payments Pro

Sunday, May 8, 2011

Recently we have added support of PayPal Website Payments Pro (WPP) payment method to Getsocio.

Unlike PayPal's "Express checkout", WPP mode allows to receive card payments directly on your daily-deal site, without sending your buyers to PayPal page.

On the downside, WPP is only available for sellers in USA, UK and Canada. Merchants from all other countries can only use "Express Checkout" to accept payments with PayPal.
