PayPal & Braintree Upgrades

Over the past couple of months our development teams have been working closely with PayPal to develop  new integrations for PayPal and Braintree. 

ShopWired is the first ecommerce platform in the UK to offer these new integrations.

The new PayPal Express Checkout integration replaces both the standard PayPal checkout (from the checkout page) and PayPal Express (from the shopping basket page). 

The new PayPal powered by Braintree integration replaces the previous Braintree integration and also replaces PayPal Website Payments Pro and PayPal Website Payments Pro Hosted. It will also replace the old PayPal Express integration (from the shopping basket page).


Why you should upgrade

ShopWired have worked closely with PayPal on the new integrations to ensure they offer the best possible experience for your customers. 

A range of new features are available such as 3D secure (for credit card payments) and allowing your customers to 'vault' a payment method (store it within their customer account) for faster checkout the next time they visit. 

With both PayPal Express Checkout & PayPal powered by Braintree your customers will never  leave your site and instead you can take advantage of the new 'in context' checkout experiences offered by PayPal. 


How to upgrade

To upgrade to the new integrations we'll need to make some small amendments to your website's theme. This service is offered free of charge by our support team. 

To request the amendments are made, please click the link within the payment gateway page of your account. Your existing PayPal and Braintree integrations will continue to work whilst the upgrades are in process.

A member of our team will contact you once the amendments have been completed. The next step is for you to connect your account with either PayPal or Braintree by clicking the new buttons that will appear in your account. 

The connection process only takes a couple of minutes to complete and you won't need any technical knowledge. 

The ShopWired support team are here to help you if you need assistance or get stuck. 

Once you've connected your ShopWired account with PayPal or Braintree the new integrations will immediately become active and live on your website.
