PayPal Express checkout is probably the biggest crap I've tested and we had to go back to the classic paypal payment. Customers understand perfectly paying in an external site, they do that with credit card systems, online banking like sofort and paypal.

My thoughts exactly

I bought some tyres the other day on a site that was using some version of this nonsense with Paypal.. totally confusing .. back and forth, popups, addresses.. truly awful and at the end of it wasn't sure I had even paid..

totally agree !

The sales team at paypal have been trying to get us to add an express checkout to our business.  We decline every time!

IMHO - The user experience is just not worth the confusion and potential loss of sales.  We do however use payments pro - hosted iframe which is great!

One of my customers is waiting for virtuemart PayPal Plus Plugin for virtuemart 3. Therefore I decided to have a closer look to develop it myself.

Is there still somebody interested in this?

Kind regards

Hello Roland!

I would be interested, too.

I think there should be much more interested dealers of onlineshop in Germany!

Did you posted your possible programming work in the german Forum (in german language)?

You can contact me directly in german.

Best regards
