    Default Re: Paypal Website Payments Pro Upgrade - 3D SECURE 2022

    Sorry, I might be more familiar with this if we had a customer with the problem.

    You are correct, I didn't see any current documentation on Zen Cart that indicates that PayPal Commerce or PayPal Checkout with Smart Payment buttons was available at this time. PayPal Express Checkout (Which is Available on Zen Cart) is 3DS compatible. We made sure that PayPal Hosted pages were 3DS Compatible before the cut off. However, the card payments are Guest Checkout rather than Direct Credit Cards.
    Is there something I'm missing here? If 3DS is needed and available, why not use it?

    If it's that the customer might get strong-armed into creating a PayPal account. That can be bypassed if you have a business account.

    That will only be available via the Paypal Express button. There will be no indication for customers that credit/debit cards can be used.
    (Please don't say I could add text to the checkout page - I already have a statement about using the Express button not showing the correct total until being returned to my site, and customers do not read it)
    The incontext popup doesn't work with my site on chrome or firefox, so it has full page redirect to Paypal. Again something I'm not happy with.
    Personally just having a Paypal button is not a professional look, and here in the UK (and more so in Europe) there are a lot of customers that just will not use Paypal, whether they need an account or not.

    I'm sorry, but you are incorrect. As I stated, with Express AND a PayPal business account, you can tell PayPal what to present to your customer. Might want to look into upgrading if you don't have the business account.

    If you already have a PayPal business account, go to the main dashboard with Balance, Quick Links, etc. Hover over your name at the upper right and click account settings.

    Scroll down to Website Payments and click on it.

    Next, click on the Update link for Website Preferences.

    Here's what we (myzencarthost.com) suggest to our customers as settings on that page.


    1. Auto Return - ON
    2. Payment data transfer - OPTIONAL (some use the same account on more than one store)
    3. Bllock non-encrypted website payment - OFF
    4. PayPal account optional (This is the kicker) - ON
    5. Contact telephone - ON
    6. Support giropay and bank transfer payments - User's Choice. Some are nervous about bank transfers that are bogus.


    Doing these settings means that PayPal will always prominently display the option to use a personal credit card.

    From PayPal
    Customers can check out without a PayPal account

    When the "account optional" feature is turned on, customers don't need a PayPal account. They use an alternate checkout and have the option to sign up for a PayPal account afterward. Customers with PayPal accounts still log in to their PayPal accounts to check out.
    This feature is available for Buy Now buttons, Donations, and shopping carts.
    Please note that if both the "auto return" and "account optional" features are turned on, customers who don't log in to PayPal can choose to go back to your website after checkout, but aren’t returned automatically.

    Yes, I know all that and already have the relevant settings.
    The point I was making is that in the shopping cart there is no indication that credit/debit cards can be used when there is only a Paypal Express button.
    Customers see "Paypal" and if they for some reason do not wish to use Paypal will abandon the cart and go elsewhere.
    I get multiple Paypal customers contacting me weekly asking why the total shown on Paypal is lower than the total shown in the cart. I already have a message at the top of the shopping cart explaining this, but they never read it.
    Putting a message "You do not need a Paypal account you can pay with credit/debit card" will be similarly overlooked.

    Also using the Express button means credit card/debit card charges are at Paypal's basic rate. Using Paypal Commerce would lower that to 1.2% + 30p per transaction (for European cards) and no monthly fee.

    There are numerous reasons for wanting a Paypal Commerce option over just using the Paypal Express button.

    There's a rumor that Elon Musk has offered his entire fortune for a sign that all will read AND comprehend.

    A note in the define page for the shopping cart in red is about the best we can do until the transporter allows us to beam in next to their computer.

    No response from either one.
    I assume from the lack of engagement in this thread no-one else has found developer?

    I have a developer who said they might be able to do this, I just emailed them to see if they still can.
    I know its crazy, I emailed Sage pay (very unlikely they supports zencart 3DS 2.0 anyhow), no response, and other companies and no response.

    I agree to some extent, I have turned off the PayPal Express Button and added payment can be made with CC or DC no need to have a Paypal account. That seems to work to some extent but it's not ideal, and folk are asking for the sites to show CC/DC payment plus PayPal as an option. Many people don't like PayPal in the UK, I think for some historical reasons. Fixing PayPal Website Payments Pro to work with SCA or PayPal Commerce would be extremely important for the UK and I suspect Europe. I have long been a keen advocate of Zen Cart E-commerce, but I am seeing people asking now to move to Wordpress and Woo-Commerce .Very sad and I hate Wordpress!!.. I have plenty of time but not the skills to fix it, sadly.

    Despite the "warning" from Paypal that manipulation of the Paypal Express chechout process may violate their T&C's, I've created my own image button for Paypal Express where the image favours Visa and Mastercard icons, and relegates Paypal to a less significant feature. Visually, the customer sees Visa and MC on the button as being prominent, and (configuring my PP business acct to what is advised above), the customer sees C-card options more vividly.

    Like many of us, I've had several calls to Paypal, imploring them to help out, but they remain indifferent. So... f**k them... my revised image seems to have circumvented the resistance from customers to use PP Express.
