    We've read the comparisons online but are still confused about which PayPal payment processing method is best for our purpose. We are selling advanced tickets to an event, and want to provide the easiest method while also assuring purchasers that their purchase is secure being made with PayPal. It seems it's between PayPal Business and PayPal Checkout, but we don't see much/any difference. Appreciate your guidance!

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out!

    They are almost the same. The PayPal Checkout allows users to pay without leaving their form (payment authorized in a PayPal pop-up). PayPal Business in the form allows your customer to pay directly in the form. It does not redirect you to the PayPal payment page regardless of the Payment Method that you choose: Debit or Credit Card or PayPal.

    It's still your call whether which one to use. You can also refer to this link for info.

    Best Regards!

    Thanks, Jeric.
    I checked the link that was provided in your response but could not
    locate info regarding PayPal Checkout, and how it compares to PayPal
    Business. Other than the user navigation experience, it appears there's
    not much difference if I'm understanding right.
    Thanks again.
