Shopify has launched subscription support for PayPal express. This launch is a landmark change since it’ll be the first time that Shopify offers leeway for additional payment gateways. Earlier it had offered the same for Shopify payments, but that has always been part of the Shopify ecosystem. The launch provides an opportunity to support merchants around the world.
Merchants using subscription apps integrated with Shopify checkout can now use PayPal express. Earlier, merchants residing in countries where Shopify Payments wasn’t supported could not use any other payment gateway. Now, they can rely on PayPal express for their subscriptions. Their customers can complete the transactions through PayPal.
