Honestly, I just don’t understand the positive reviews on this plugin. I have thoroughly tested it, and essential features don’t work with the plugin. 1. Refunds initiated from a WooCommerce order don’t work at all (they’re don’t even recognized on PayPal side). 2. There’s no detailed order information (item listing with SKU, item name, price and quantity info) on PayPal side, only an order number. 3. Shipping, tax and discount costs are not displayed on PayPal side (displays zero for each item instead of the actual value). 4. Testing (sandbox) feature has practically no documentation, and the developer’s answer to related support requests is something like “sandbox configuration is usually very tricky, have you tested with live purchases?”. I’ve lost tons of money in one of my projects because of the issues with this plugin, and I certainly will discourage everyone from using it.

WooCommerce charges $80 for a similar plugin. This is a great free plugin for processing payments through PayPal. Very easy setup and works great and integrates with the Woo PP plugins.

Hi While i’m using multi currency in one site woo commerce, then this plugin using this code ‘CURRENCYCODE’ => get_option(‘woocommerce_currency’), which select only Currency Options. So my suggestion is that while there will be new version of this plugin then use this code ‘CURRENCYCODE’ => get_woocommerce_currency(), instead of ‘CURRENCYCODE’ => get_option(‘woocommerce_currency’). So that it will select multi currency. Thanks

We are hoping to enable “Transparent Redirect” with this plugin. Similar to the setting available in Paypal Pro PayFlow settings: https://docs.woocommerce.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/paypal-pro-payflow-settings.png Is this possible? We are being told we are not PCI Compliant without this setting. Much thanks!
