    I'm setting up a recurring donation form, which isn't an option in PayPal Checkout. I switched it to PayPal Standard to take advantage of the subscription option, but I don't know if there are any other differences between the two. I have a PayPal Business account - will PayPal Standard payments process correctly?

    The PayPal Checkout allows users to pay without leaving your form (payment authorized in a PayPal pop-up), while the PayPal Standard redirects users to the PayPal payment page upon hitting the form submit button.

    The PayPal Standard integration is compatible with the PayPal business accounts. There should be no issues.
