The latest version of PayPal Checkout is now available to Miva merchants. It’s adding dynamic buttons to the checkout process to help solve one of the most persistent merchant challenges: converting shoppers into buyers and reducing cart abandonment.

Get smart.

Smart Payment Buttons™ leverage data from PayPal’s global network of consumers to intelligently present the payment types most likely to help your shoppers convert. With Smart Payment Buttons, the most relevant payment types, including PayPal Credit,1 Pay with Venmo,2 and local alternative payment methods, are automatically displayed for shoppers around the world—helping to ensure that customers see the payment options that speak to their personal and local preferences.

Streamline checkout and increase conversion.

With PayPal, shoppers can complete payments in just a few taps, moving quickly through checkout. And with One Touch™ enabled on your website or app, customers can skip logging into PayPal altogether. In fact, merchants in the United States can see up to 82% more checkout conversions with PayPal Checkout.3

Offer relevant payment options and engage customers. 

Did you realize Venmo is the most used peer-to-peer payment app for Millennials,4 with a highly engaged mobile user base?

If younger shoppers are part of your target market, they’ll be pleased to see Venmo at checkout – and can help increase your brand exposure when they share purchases on the Venmo social feed.

PayPal Credit can also encourage shoppers to complete their purchases. According to a PayPal/comScore study, up to 53% of shoppers wouldn’t have made all of their purchases if PayPal Credit weren’t available.5

How to get started.

With one powerful integration, you can offer consumers new ways to pay today – and be prepared for how shoppers want to pay tomorrow.
