PayPal for Partners powers Checkout on Instagram

By Chris Dawson March 20, 2019 - 11:09 am

PayPal for Partners has been revealed as the Instagram partner powering their new Checkout on Instagram experience for shopping.

Checkout on Instagram, which will be available within posts and stories with shopping stickers and tags, enables Instagram users in the US to buy, track and manage their purchases directly within Instagram and allows businesses to sell directly on Instagram without the buyer having to move to another app or website.

After discovering a checkout-enabled product, shoppers will see the option to “Checkout on Instagram” when they tap to view additional details. Shoppers will be able to securely store their preferred payment type, including PayPal, for faster checkout on future purchases. Shoppers can also use the Instagram app to view their order status, estimated delivery date and tracking number, as well as cancel orders, initiate a return, or request additional support.

This new experience is supported by PayPal’s latest full-stack processing platform, PayPal for Partners, which allows Instagram to manage the end-to-end commerce experience for buyers and sellers. PayPal for Partners offers a seamless onboarding experience that allows a platform to get merchants up and running, enable flexible onboarding and start accepting payments after one single sign-up flow.

PayPal is enabling the next generation of commerce experiences for partners, while making the onboarding process seamless with new One Touch Seller Signup, which is what’s made it perfect to power Checkout on Instagram.
