How does a PayPal user pay a Flutterwave merchant?
As a PayPal user, it’s pretty much a familiar flow. On a Flutterwave merchant’s checkout page, look out for the “Pay with PayPal” option.
Click the “Pay with PayPal” button, and follow the prompt as it redirects you to your PayPal account to complete your payment as usual.
That’s it. After the payment, you’re automatically redirected to the merchant’s checkout page as payment is confirmed on the modal.
