I would like to add PayPal express checkout to my product page and to Featured Product block. I already have PayPal checkout in Cart and checkout, but i would like it to also be on product page. I have dynamic checkout button enabled. Theme: Sense. How do i add a new button or replace "Shop Pay" button?

Hey, @AnnaPotsi.


Thank you for reaching out and posting this question!


I understand that you'd like to add PayPal's dynamic checkout button onto your product pages. However, since this button is dynamic and you have multiple forms of dynamic checkout buttons enabled (eg. Shop Pay and PayPal), then the button that appears to the customers is entirely dependent on several key factors:


  • Device/browser compatibility (Apple Pay works on Apple devices, using Safari)

  • Customer's previous history (if the customer has never logged in or used any of the branded wallets like Amazon Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, etc., they will likely not be presented any branded options)

  • Merchant's payment settings (only the branded options that correspond to the merchant's payment settings are possible options to display to the user)

  • Store currency and buyer's PayPal account (eg. INR currency is only supported with India PayPal accounts and not in general, so the generic Buy it now button will show in most cases. See PayPal's country codes reference page for details)

As these features are designed to be convenient for the customer, there isn't any way to control which button to display to a user at any given point in time. However, one option for increasing the chances of PayPal's button appearing is by disabling some of the other dynamic checkout buttons - such as Shop Pay, ApplePay, or Google Wallet. 


That being said, it may also be possible to customize the theme so that the default dynamic checkout button shows PayPal. However, this isn't something that is supported by the Shopify Design Policy so you will need to consider hiring a developer to assist you with this task if you're not comfortable working with coding languages. Should you need help finding a developer, then we'd recommend taking a look at our directory of certified developers on Shopify Experts.
