PayPal Presentation Terms

According to PayPal the following clause will be added to their agreement:

1.5 Presentation of PayPal

You agree to provide equal treatment to PayPal and/or other payment methods or marks you offer at your points of sale (e.g. websites or mobile applications). This includes at least equal or substantially similar: logo placement, position within any point of sale, and treatment in terms of payment flow, terms, conditions, restrictions, or fees, in each case as compared to other marks and payment methods at your points of sale.

In representations to your customers or in public communications, you agree not to mischaracterize PayPal as a payment method or exhibit a preference for other payment methods over PayPal.  Within all of your points of sale, you agree not to try to dissuade or inhibit your customers from using PayPal or encourage the customer to use an alternate payment method.  If you enable your customers to pay you with PayPal, whenever you display or exhibit the payment methods that you accept (either within any point of sale or in your marketing materials, advertising and other customer communications) you agree to display the PayPal payment marks at least as prominently, and in at least as positive a manner, as you do for all other payment methods.

This morning PayPal India announced upcoming changes to their legal agreements effective 13th November 2018.

One of them will introduce a requirement on how PayPal payment option is displayed on user websites/mobile apps.

We are already compliant with this upcoming requirement and present PayPal payment options in the same manner as the other payment options.

If you have any other places where you have displayed PayPal as a payment option, you may want to take a look at their presentation again.

PayPal INR payments enabled in PayPal module

According to PayPal India:

"In line with the Govt of India's Gazette Notification pertaining to Subsidizing MDR charges on Debit Cards/ BHIM UPI/ AePS transactions of value less than or equal to INR 2000 dated 27th Dec 2017, we are announcing a promotional pricing of 2.5%+ INR 3 up-to 1 January 2020 for all domestic payments."

This morning PayPal India announced that Indian PayPal users can accept payments in INR for domestic transactions.

To enable INR payments in your PayPal account you will need tologin to your PayPal Business account and complete a domestic KYC process at this link.

We have updated the payMyPage (pMP) system to allow you to accept PayPal payments in INR and have already taken care of the technical part of enabling the display of the PayPal INR payment option to visitors from India.

However, this option will only work if you have successfully completed domestic KYC with PayPal. You can activate this feature by checking the box in your PayPal module settings after logging-in on this page.

Once this is done, if your payment page has a price mentioned in INR then PayPal will appear as a payment option for INR payments.
