PayPal Express vs PayPal Website Payments Standard


Recommended Posts

What are the differences between PayPal Express and PayPal Website Payments Standard? They are both provided for free by PayPal and it looks like both have modules available with OSCommerce.


We are wanting to use our merchant account (with Quantum gateway), PayPal and Google Checkout with the customer choosing which one he wants. When using PayPal Website Payments Standard module, does OScommerce give the customer a choice upon checkout or do we have to use ONLY PayPal Express?

Which one is considered better and what are the differences?


Thank you.

Does the paypal site not explain the features of both methods?

The PayPal site doesn't explain very well. I see that PayPal Express uses an API, while PayPal Website Payments Standard is a little simpler since it doesn't use PayPal's API. But functionally, I don't see any difference in how the user experience is. What are the differences in user experience when used with OSCommerce?
