To configure the new PayPal module in the advanced variant and if you are going to use alternative payment methods or wish to take credit card payments without leaving site, you should set up web-hooks and custom card fields options. In order to do it, click on the Account details and advanced settings link and on Subscribe button next to Required Webhooks and confirm the action in the pop up window.

With the help of the settings for this module you can:

Enable PayPal Checkout to accept PayPal Checkout payments.

Disable PayPal for guest if only virtual products in cart: (since PayPal does not provide any billing address, the guest (express) orders will not have any address).

Show PayPal button(s) on Product page: (if horizontal is chosen and depending on design only one PayPal button may show).

Show PayPal button(s) on Shopping Cart page: (if horizontal is chosen and depending on design only one PayPal button may show)

Show PayPal button(s) on Checkout page (if horizontal is chosen and depending on design only one PayPal button may show, Fields option allows to show fields for filling in the credit card information on the check out page)

Show PayPal Pay later info (it is available almost all over the world)

Save order before payment (It slows down the checkout process and allows to transfer the exact invoice ID to PayPal. It is recommended if you have several orders a minute and alternative payment methods)

Restrict this payment method to the required customer groups, make it available for the required countries as well as make it available for certain sections on the website (checkout, quotations, samples and so on).
