No problem at all @faceproject.

 

PayPal wouldn't calculate the shipping cost, but the shipping settings from your admin would come into effect here yes. Here's how it would work:

 

The customer is taken to PayPal, where PayPal collects their shipping and billing addresses. After that, the shopper returns to Shopify where they pick a shipping rate and enter discount codes (if applicable). The price is updated accordingly and, on that same page, the customer gets to finalize their transaction.

 

Hopefully, that clears it up for you. 🙂

Hi @faceproject,

 

Nick here from Shopify. 

 

Great question about this. It does seem like it might skip the entire shipping aspect of the process, but this is included when the customer goes to their PayPal profile. You can see an example of how it might look from the screenshot I took from a live store below:

The idea of this PayPal checkout is that it's "Express" and has fewer steps for the customer which is what happens here. Because the customer's address is already in their PayPal account it takes this into consideration to make the checkout process shorter. 

 

With that being said, if you would still like to look into removing the PayPal Express Checkout buy button, it is possible. There is a helpful guide which you might find useful for this which you can see here. The way it works is simple but a little weird. 

If 

`{{ content_for_additional_checkout_buttons }}`

is present in cart-template.liquid then the PayPal button will show on the cart page BUT it will not show on the first step of the checkout. 

 

If 

{{ content_for_additional_checkout_buttons }}

is NOT present in cart-template.liquid then the PayPal buttons will NOT show on the cart page BUT they will show on the first step of the checkout.

 

If you don’t want the buttons to appear on the cart page and first step of checkout, and only on the last step of checkout (payment methods) then you need to have the following code:

 

{% if additional_checkout_buttons %}
  <div class="additional-checkout-buttons">
    {{ content_for_additional_checkout_buttons }}
  </div>
{% endif %}

on the cart page and you can then add the following:

 

.additional-checkout-buttons {
display: none;
}

to the bottom of theme.scss.liquid file. 

 

Hopefully, this helps and gives you an idea of your options and where to go next. 

 

All the best, Nick

Hi Nick,

Seems that the css edit solution to hide the Paypal Express Checkout button before the shipping step does not work anymore.

I am about to remove PayPal from the payment providers of my store.

How come Paypal impose the button before the shipping step?

Hi @Gabriel_MH,

 

Thanks for letting us know about that about the CSS solution. Did you try it?

The reason for this is that it is an express checkout. It expedites the checkout process and takes the customer information from PayPal after they log in, where it would get their address.

Hi Nick,

First of all, I don't want the express checkout because of the confusion it brings to the funnel: since it is displayed at the shipping information page, customers tends to  think that it is the only payment provider available.

Regarding the css edit option, Shopify lets us modify the code only until a certain step of the funnel; the PayPal express checkout button is outside this perimeter.

My point is that PayPal could let the store owner decide between 1. having both the express checkout (at the shipping information page) and the "pay with PayPal" checkout (at the final step, with other payment providers) and 2. having only the"pay with PayPal" checkout.

But they impose to use both, and for this reason I chose to disconnect PayPal from our store.

Thanks for letting me know Gabriel. 

 

I'll be sure to let our team know and aware of this. Regarding the PayPal aspect, it could be worth reaching out to PayPal about this directly and giving them this feedback too. 

 

Thanks again, Nick

I will let PayPal teams investigate the reason why store owners deactivate their solution, it is their job after all.

I'm having the same issue. Is there not an option to just add paypal as one of the checkout methods along with the credit cards instead of forcing the "express" option?

Hi @4Exploradores,

PayPal Express is the only available PayPal checkout method available. I'm not sure why exactly that is to be perfectly honest. Shopify does have a document going through everything to do with supported PayPal providers which you can read here

I am experiencing the same issue.  I don't understand how the PayPal Express Checkout is of any use whatsoever to any merchant if you can't apply shipping.

I don't see any option other than to remove PayPal completely, which I'm far from thrilled about.

Surely this is a major issue the Shopify and PayPal need to sort out between themselves as a priority.

I am also having a lot of issues with PayPal express on our store. Multiple per week. PayPal only show the cost of the products not the shipping so customers get confused and abandon. 

 

Other times PayPal will charge the full cost including shipping the another line in bank statement will show for the shipping cost. After 3 days the pending payment in the customers bank account will disappear but it is really frustrating for customers and confusing. I have numerous emails I can provide from customers to show the confusion.

I am ready to remove PayPal, I wish as others said above that there was a non express option that didn't introduce all these strange behaviours.
