Hi everyone!

 

I'm needing help in adding the "PayPal Pay in 4" function at checkout. 

 

Does someone have an easy step by step how to enable this in my shopify store?

 

I've looked for the topics on here but none of them actually explain how to do it 😔

 

My store: https://meeko-8476.myshopify.com

 

Password: Meeko

Theme: Dawn

Location: Australia

 

Thank you for all your help!

Hi @WebsitePandas 

 

Thank you!

 

This has been helpful. 

 

I'm in Australia and I meet the eligibility criteria. 

On the PayPal's website it's saying people in Australia are eligible. 

 

I still cant find the PayPal pay in 4 option in the "Alternative Payments"

 

I know a few stores that have this option that are based in Australia, but for some reason I can't add it?

I'm also having the same problem. Aussie Shopify store owner here and Paypal just approved me for Pay in 4.

 

It's very frustrating because Paypal have simple processes to follow for other ecommerce platforms, but nothing like that for Shopify - which is the biggest one out there!

 

I chatted to support today and they linked me to this post, so hopefully we can both get some help. I was also asked to post on the SDK board which I've just done. I'll let you know if I find out any info.

Yo! 

Enter this code in the liquid on the product page, works a treat 🙂 

<script
src="https://www.paypal.com/sdk/js?client-id=YOUR-CLIENT-ID&currency=AUD&components=messages">
</script>

<div
data-pp-message
data-pp-placement="product"
data-pp-amount=data-pp-amount="120.00">
</div>

Paypal Pay-in-4 is now available for Australian merchants. I tried to follow your steps but Paypal pay in 4 isn't listed as an alternative payment option.

So American users of Shopify can use Pay In Four but not Australian ? from further comments below it seems this will not happen ever .... cant imagine its PayPal preventing it as they are approving Aussie businesses ... seems like a poor choice on Shopifys part to not allow it , I have received requests from customers to have it , may have to look elsewhere for my website. Is there any chance it will ever be approved ??

Hi Meeko, do you know if this will be available in Australia anytime soon? I am currently looking at an alternative webstore which supports PayPal Pay in 4

It's available to Australian merchants now, but the bad news is that there is no official implementation from Paypal with Shopify.

I contacted PayPal support and got this response:

Hello James, I'm Kevin. I understand you're trying to setup pay in 4 with your Shopify account. It's good you reached to us so you don't keep trying because the pay in 4 option isn't compatible with Shopify and that's why you're having those issues. I apologise for that.

 

I replied and said that's unfortunate because it would really be a great optiob for my customers. Then he replied:

 

I tried to call you to talk about it further but I didn't reach you. It's ok I was just going to tell you I understand where you're coming from but I don't see it ever being compatible with Shopify. That's just what I've been informed.

 

Considering how big Shopify is, I find this very disappointing. Being able to offer pay in 4 for my customers would definitely help get more sales.

Just following up on this legitimate request. I contacted Paypal today and got a similar "No Go on Shopify" response;  

Thank you for messaging PayPal today. I understand you are wanting to use Pay in 4 on Shopify.  I surely wish you could!  Sadly, at this time Shopify does not let Pay in 4 be offered.  Hopefully, they will soon.  I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Yet in the thread we have OrdinaryAgency suggesting a simple code insertion will provide a solution. (Stated twice in fact).


Has anyone tried this method and can report if it was successful?

Your site looks good, but the paypal pay in 4 process is not clear -
especially to a new customer or person who hasn't used pay in 4 before.

The product pages have the correct pay in 4 messaging, but when I added to
cart there was no further mention of Paypal pay in 4 - even when I skipped
express checkout and went to the payment options page. It has Paypal as an
option but doesn't mention pay in 4. Does this get offered when the
customer clicks on Paypal for the payment option?

Yeh, paypal - its an option once you choose to pay with PayPal and go to
their portal. They are not separate companies or anything. Costs between
30-2000 are possible, they also don't charge unlike other bnpl who usually
get their 2%

Hi OrdinaryAgency, with lots of respect for helping the community, unfortunately, I too was unable to visibly see the Pay in 4 option in your checkout, regardless of how deep I went.

Would dearly love to solve this. So thanks again for your efforts.

No worries Rob

This is an option you get when you select PayPal. Its not a stand alone
option like other bnpl. When you select the Paypal option, you are
presented with it then. aslong as the purchase is between $30-$2000 you can
check out via pay in 4.

Even other bnpl's require you to log in to check out like that, so its the
same as them.

Hope this helps! 🙂
