removing paypal express payment BUTTON


Recommended Posts

hello there!

this should be a fairly easy question for the more experienced:

i've installed paypal express (which is good right, its better than the other paypal options??)

and now i have a ugly yellow paypal button right under the "checkout" when you view the shoppingcart.

i dont want customers to go to paypal, i want them to checkout the regular way, so i want to remove this button.

how do i do that?


greetings, Jeanette

to do this you'll need to:


delete this in line 218 of catalog\shopping_cart.php:



<td align="right" class="main" style="padding-right: 50px;"><?php echo TEXT_ALTERNATIVE_CHECKOUT_METHODS; ?></td>



delete this in line 228 of catalog\shopping_cart.php:


<td align="right" class="main"><?php echo $value; ?></td>


Lines in your shopping_cart.php may differ.

Good luck!

I've just found better solution:


comment below code found in paypal_express.php in includes/modules/payment:

function checkout_initialization_method() {

global $language;


if (file_exists(DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'ext/modules/payment/paypal/images/btn_express_' . basename($language) . '.gif')) {

$image = 'ext/modules/payment/paypal/images/btn_express_' . basename($language) . '.gif';

} else {

$image = 'ext/modules/payment/paypal/images/btn_express.gif';



$string = '<a href="' . tep_href_link('ext/modules/payment/paypal/express.php', '', 'SSL') . '"><img src="' . $image . '" border="0" alt="" title="' . tep_output_string_protected(MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_EXPRESS_TEXT_BUTTON) . '" /></a>';


return $string;
