    Sorry if I'm overlooking something obvious but I'm not seeing the PayPal Payments Standard Add-On anywhere on your site or in your portfolio on Envato / CodeCanyon. Is this going to be made available for purchase soon?

    I'm also curious to know a couple of things:

    1. The payment form will be integrated directly within a website? No need to open PayPal in a new window/tab?

    2. Will an SSL certificate be required or recommended for sites processing PayPal payments using this add-on?

    Hi Ryan, the add-on was approved by Envato yesterday, so it's available for purchase.

    1) The user will be redirected to a PayPal page to make the payment.

    2) It's not necessary, as the payment will be processed on PayPal's page, which is a secured page.

    I have the need to utilize PayPal's Authorize and Capture feature to collect payment method without immediately charging account. Can this be done through PayPal Express or this new Standard add-on? From my understanding, the PayPal API has a function built-in that allows it but I can't find documentation regarding your plugins usage of this feature.

    Thank you!

    Hi Jacob, currently this functionality is not supported. The new PayPal Payments Standard add-on offers the option for customers to pay just by entering their credit card details, without having a PayPal account.

    I wonder how the payment form by paypal Standard would look different from the payment form by paypal Express?
    I know users will be redirected to a Paypal page by the two payment methods.
    Can I see any screenshot regarding it?

    Hi Lee, the payment page won't look different, it will look the same as the page for PayPal Express Checkout.
