As someone on the developer team who writes documentation for PayPal, I had a front row seat to the design process of PayPal’s new pay later documentation.
I’m especially excited for the opportunities PayPal’s new pay later offerings could open for businesses: growing their sales, attracting new customers, and driving customer loyalty. But before I get ahead of myself, I should explain pay later.
PayPal pay later options include Pay in 4 and PayPal Credit. Pay in 4 is a new payment offering that enables customers to pay for their purchases in four interest-free payments.
PayPal Credit* offers special financing. Both pay later options are included in the latest PayPal Checkout integration. Customers get the flexibility to pay for their purchases over time while businesses get paid up front at no extra cost.
The SDK will show a pay later button if:
- You’re a US-based seller with a US-facing website
- You’ve integrated a PayPal payment solution that doesn’t include vaulted payments or billing agreements
