Paypal is a popular third party payment system that gives you the ability to easily and securely accept payments online. Ozcart supports Paypal Standard, Paypal Express Checkout and Paypal Pro.

Integration with Ozcart

Ozcart is pre-integrated with Paypal Standard, Express and Pro.

Once you have signed up a business account with Paypal, you then log in to your Paypal account and generate some security keys which you enter into your store as an electronic signature. Your store can then communicate with Paypal’s secure servers.

Example: Paypal Express Setup in Ozcart


If you use Paypal’s pop-up (in-context) checkout option with Paypal Express, you’ll be able to show the Paypal credentials login in your website’s checkout without them having to redirect all the way to Paypal’s website. This keeps customers in your checkout and makes them more likely to complete the sale.

Key Facts

Third party payment services like Paypal are easy to set up, but when money clears it does not go directly into your business bank account. This means you can only use the money to make other purchases with Paypal, or to withdraw the money and wait for it to clear into your account.

Please see Paypal’s official Paypal page for the most up-to-date and detailed information.

Banks Supported

Paypal is a third party payment solution so you don’t require a merchant bank account as well. The downside of this is that your payments only go into your Paypal account and must be manually withdrawn if you want to transfer them into an Australian business bank account.

Getting Set up

Setting up with Paypal is done online and processed very quickly compared to merchant accounts and Internet merchant gateway providers.
