Set up PayPal on Your Shopify E-commerce Store

Shopify creates a PayPal Express Checkout account for the email address you used to set up your store. With this, you give your customers a faster, safer, and easiest way to pay. In a few steps, they can speed through checkout using their PayPal account to pay with balance, bank account, credit card, or debit card.

*Note that you always have to make a test transaction to make sure everything is set up properly.

You will start to receive payments from orders made right away once the setup is complete. It is important that you finish setting up your account if you want to issue refunds or manually capture payments.

How does PayPal Work on Your Store?

PayPal fills out the billing address fields with the customer’s shipping address. The customer can edit the information. Shopify can send only a single address to PayPal.

However, for normal PayPal payments (as opposed to credit card payments) this address must be the shipping address because PayPal already has the billing address. There is no way for Shopify to know ahead of time whether the customer has an existing account. As a result, Shopify can’t send the billing address, such as when the customer is paying with a credit card instead.
