Introducing Venmo and PayPal Credit at Checkout

Introducing Venmo and PayPal Credit at Checkout

Just in time for Black Friday and the busy holiday shopping season, your customers can now pay using Venmo, or buy now and pay over time with PayPal Credit.

Shoppers will love these new payment options. Venmo and PayPal Credit make it even more convenient to purchase the perfect holiday gift for that special someone.

Two More Great Options to Get Paid


Venmo is a popular social payments app used by millions of people to make and share payments from their mobile device. The Venmo payment option is automatically enabled when you’re using PayPal Express Checkout, so any buyers on mobile with the Venmo app installed and set up will see this option without any additional work on your end.



PayPal Credit offers your customers a quick way to buy now and pay over time with a credit line and other perks. If you’ve enabled PayPal Express Checkout, and your store’s country is set to the United States, PayPal Credit is automatically enabled for you. If you’re in another country, you’ll need PayPal’s approval before you enable it in your Big Cartel admin under Account > Edit your payment options.

A Better Checkout Experience

These new payment options use PayPal's new inline checkout, which handles everything inside a pop-up window or tab. This makes all PayPal payments, whether it's from a PayPal account, Venmo, PayPal Credit, or guest credit card, quick and seamless because shoppers are no longer redirected to PayPal's site. Much better!

For store owners, these new features are integrated so you don't have to learn or manage anything new. All orders processed by PayPal will look exactly the same, so reviewing order details and receiving payment will work just like before.
