PayPal Payments Pro is a gateway plugin which extends Jigoshop, allowing you to take credit card payments via PayPal directly on your site. The customer enters their credit card details on your site during the checkout process and PayPal handles the rest. This results in an extremely slick checkout process during which the user never has to leave your site. PayPal Payments Pro is only available within the UK, US and Canada to holders of a PayPal Pro merchant account. An SSL certificate is also required to ensure your customer credit card details are safe.
Extension requires active account with PayPal Payments Pro. Cost of $30.00 USD per month, plus 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction fee.
