PayPal One-click Payments


    One-click - allows a user to perform payments without entering credit card details. It is a good practice to make sure the payment experience for your customer is frictionless. With the One-click feature, you save (tokenize) PayPal payment details the first time they make the payment. Next time they want to make another payment, all they need to do is tap the pay button. 


    One-click payments can increase the conversion during recurring purchases from the same user. 

Example of the sell on post-transaction via one-click: 

  1. User orders a service X for 9.99 USD 
  2. The user performs the first successful payment, and you receive a PayPal token.
  3. Instead of a message about the successful purchase, you will show the user a payment form on the next screen with the offer to buy a related service Y for 14.99 USD.
  4. To buy, the user only needs to push one button.
  5. By pressing the button, you will initiate a payment with the token of the PayPal - recurring. 
  6. After that, both services X and Y can be set into regular payments and charged according to the defined schedule.
