      Yes, I replied to your help desk ticket as well. There is a product level option that could be overriding the global option you’re showing here. That’s the first thing we need to check. Please reply to the ticket you have with us and I can help you more.

  2. Sascha B. (verified owner)

    Didn’t work for me, unfortunately. I tried this plugin because the “official” WooCommerce PayPal plugin stopped connecting to PayPal properly. But this plugin didn’t complete the transactions either. The support at PayPal looked into it and said the “capture call” was not send to claim the payment. The same problem, which the WooCommerce plugin caused. Too bad, I would have liked to have it work for me. 🙁

      Hi Sascha,

      Did you submit a ticket with us to help you figure out the problem before leaving a review? If you create a ticket at we’ll be happy to help you resolve the problem. The other plugins do have a lot of bugs and lack of features that make ours superior, but if you’re having the exact same problem with both then that may be pointing to a problem in your setup like a conflicting plugin. We would just need to track it down following standard WP troubleshooting steps. The “capture” call happens as the last step in the process. For whatever reason your buyers aren’t making it to that step. Have you tested yourself? Please submit a ticket and we’ll be happy to help.

    Was unable to get Venmo as a payment option.

      Hi Joseph,

      I’m sorry you are having issues with that. Venmo is actually tied into Express Checkout, and it will only show up on mobile devices. Is that how you were testing?

  4. Lee A. (verified owner)

    It is a good plugin, but an update broke my site and no-one could access my site – not even me. The developer released an update a few hours after the ‘broken’ update. In hindsight, it would have been better if they’d found the issue before releasing the update.

    • Drew (store manager)

      Yeah, sorry you ran into that. We had the fix pushed very quickly. You just happened to grab it in that small window of time. Not deflecting, as I agree this should not have happened, but it’s a good example of why we always recommend people apply updates to staging sites prior to doing it on a live site, whether with our plugins or any others. Sorry again that it happened, but I would hope that the quickness in which we responded to you and had a fix available would be worth something. Most plugin devs out there would take 24 hours + just to reply to you, and even longer to have a fix done, especially with a FREE plugin. In 5+ years of maintaining that’s the only time this happened, and again, it was only up there for a short period before we had a fix available. How much have you made through your site using our free plugin? That’s not worth an extra stars or two..?? 😉

    Should have a better demo video for this.

    • Drew Angell (store manager)

      Which video did you watch? We have more than one, so maybe you didn’t see the best one..?? We definitely need to do an updated one with more details, and we appreciate the feedback, but I just want to make sure I know what exactly you saw..??

  6. Eran Solomon (verified owner)

    It appears that your plugin does not function in my country (Israel) and your representative did not foresee it. No harm was done because it was for free, but still….

    • Drew Angell (store manager)

      Express Checkout will work just fine for you. It’s only PayPal Pro / Braintree that would not be available.

  7. Jason Crandall

    I’m getting PHP errors non stop from this plugin on line 60 what ever that means. this 503’s my site into non display. Mike Eppel has been working on it to no avail.

    I don’t want a refund, I want the plugin to work.
    Can I get some resolution to this?

      It looks like the problem is coming from a Canada shipping plugin you must have installed. Can you try disabling that plugin to see if the problem goes away?

  8. theconnectedrider

    Loved this until my site started loading at near five seconds…no thanks. Uninstalling. Just letting people know it’s great. but it loads SLOW.

    I am not able to get the Paypal Advanced to work. I have activated the Paypal Express and included all options. I have also activated PayPal Advanced, but in the shopping cart it continues to say that Paypal Express hasn’t been set up… HELP

    • Andrew Angell (store manager)

      Please submit a ticket here. It will be easier to manage and help you figure this out than working in these comments. In that ticket please include details about exactly what your goal is. For example, are you trying to use Express Checkout like usual, but then use Advanced for credit cards only?

  10. kaylee

    Poor documentation and no answer on the support forums. I ended up purchasing something else.

    The plugin probably works (which is why they are getting a 3 star instead of a 1 star rating). They just need to work on the documentation and support.

WooCommerce PayPal Pro Credit Card Payments

PayPal Payments Pro gives you everything you need to securely accept credit cards and debit cards on your website.

It offers a secure payment experience with complete customization ability over your customers’ checkout process; and an Internet merchant account from PayPal.

Therefore, Payments Pro is ideal for businesses that want complete control over the checkout experience.

Our plugin makes it work with WooCommerce and customers can pay by credit card without ever leaving your website.

NOTE: – Fully supports both “Website Payments Pro” and “PayFlow Pro”.

PayPal Payments Advanced

Payments Advanced is a cheaper alternative to Payments Pro which ties PayPal and credit card payments into an i-frame on your website’s checkout page.

As such, this eliminates the need to worry about PCI compliance and is roughly half the price of PayPal Payments Pro.

NOTE: Payments Advanced is no longer being approved for new merchants.  However, if you already have it active on your account our plugin will still support it.

WooCommerce PayPal Gateway REST Credit Card Payments

PayPal’s new REST API adds the ability to process credit cards on the site without the need for PayPal Payments Pro.

This means no more monthly fees for processing credit cards directly!  This is essentially the exact same thing that Stripe offers with their credit card processing features.

  • A REST-full API that gets you taking payments very quickly with no monthly fees.


NOTE: Direct REST CC has been replaced by PayPal Advanced CC in the new Complete Payments gateway.  This “Classic REST” option is no longer being approved for merchants.  However, if you already have it active on your account our plugin will still support it.

Total Processing Fees When Using PayPal + Angell EYE

Accept Card Payments

Our credit and debit card processing rates make it simple and affordable for your business to accept payments online when compared to competitors like Stripe, Square, and the rest!

Credit and Debit Card Payments Transaction Fee

2.69% + 49¢ per transaction

Includes the following payment methods:

Visa | MasterCard | Discover | JCB | Diner's Club

Accept PayPal Payments

Increase conversion rates and average order total by letting your customers use the PayPal payment options they prefer - PayPal Checkout, Pay Later, Venmo, and more!  Seller Protection on eligible transactions can help your business avoid chargebacks, reversals and fees.

PayPal Branded Payments Transaction Fee

3.59% + 49¢ per transaction

Includes the following payment methods:

PayPal Checkout, Buy Now Pay Later, Venmo, PayPal Rewards, PayPal Checkout with Crypto


The fees displayed are the result of the PayPal US rate + the Angelleye commission of only 0.1%.

At Angell EYE, we believe in honesty, fairness, and transparency, especially when it comes to our pricing. We understand that the nuances of payment processing fees can be confusing, so let us break it down for you.

When you use our plugin to process payments, you'll continue paying whatever rate you've negotiated with PayPal, whether that's for PayPal Wallet transactions or for credit card processing.

What we do add is a small commission of 0.1% per transaction. This is our fee for the added value and capabilities our plugins provide.

To make this more clear, if your rate with PayPal is 3.49% for wallet transactions or 2.59% for credit card transactions, then with our plugin, you would pay an all-inclusive rate of 3.59% or 2.69% respectively.

However, it's important to note that your rates with PayPal may vary based on your own agreements. So, the key takeaway here is this: you will always pay your established PayPal rate plus our flat 0.1% commission.

This approach keeps your fees typically lower than with our competitors, and more importantly, keeps pricing simple and transparent.

The Angell EYE Advantage

We at AngellEYE are PayPal specialists.  We have developed a very close relationship with PayPal over the past 20+ years.

Rest assured that when you’re working with AngellEYE PayPal plugins your payments will work as expected.

In addition, everything between WooCommerce orders and PayPal’s transaction details will be seamless.

Therefore, you will not find yourself confused when looking at orders in one place or the other because the same data is available in each location.

PayPal Certified Developer

Quality Control and Seamless PayPal Integration

Our developers have built and tested this plugin thoroughly in the PayPal sandbox.

Firstly, we have ensured that all necessary data passes to PayPal with clean and accurate details.  In additional, we verify that all data passes to correct fields that PayPal provides.

Therefore, all order details will show up in PayPal as expected, and all data about orders will match.  This is true whether you’re looking at PayPal transaction details or WooCommerce order details.

The following outline describes just a few things that we found wrong with other plugins that we’ve done correctly with ours.

Error Handling

  • Many (in fact, all) of the other PayPal extensions I’ve seen have some serious issues regarding error handling.
  • One example is with Payments Pro, where you can have Fraud Filters configured in your PayPal account.
    • Orders could raise a flag and trigger a filter, however, the payment still completes successfully and the buyer should see the order complete page.
    • In many cases, these end up getting treated as failures, the buyer is shown an error, and could potentially end up processing multiple payments if they continue re-trying.
    • This sort of crucial error handling problem will not happen with our plugin!

Cart Items

  • All cart item details pass fully to PayPal and show up correctly in PayPal’s transaction details.
  • All items will always pass.
  • You will not find truncated item names in the PayPal transaction details.
  • The WooCommerce SKU is correctly passed to PayPal as the Item Number.
  • Item Attributes
    • We’ve seen all sorts of crazy ways people try to handle item attributes (ie. color, size, etc.)
    • All attributes will append to the item name with our plugin so that they can be easily seen in the PayPal tranaction details.
      • You will not find item attributes being passed in random fields like other plugins.

Cart Totals

  • With our plugin, all cart totals calculate accurately and are sent correctly over to PayPal.
  • You will not find any “rounding issue” items popping up on your orders when using our plugins like you do with “official” plugins.
  • Subtotal, shipping, handling, taxes, and grand total amounts calculate and pass to PayPal accurately and in their correct parameters.

Discount Codes

  • We’ve ensured that all discount codes applied to an order are correctly passed over to PayPal.
    • This allows you to see each individual code that a customer uses, its amount, and its actual code value.


  • If shipping is available on the WooCommerce cart page, this will be passed to PayPal for review during checkout.
    • If the address changes during review, the shipping and tax will be re-calculated.
  • The PayPal request includes the shipping address, so that it will show up in the PayPal transaction details page accurately.

URL Encoding

  • All data passed to PayPal is correctly URL encoded and formatted per specified standards.
  • You will not have problems where you see a bunch of special characters included with your transaction data.
