Here’s how to set up true PayPal one click upsell for WooCommerce using PayPal Reference Transactions
As mentioned above, our PayPal one-click upsell for WooCommerce can be enabled using PayPal Reference Transactions, Smart Offers plugin and WooCommerce PayPal Standard gateway.
If you have another WooCommerce upsell plugin, it will work. But we highly recommended using Smart Offers because of its simplicity, flexible targeting rules, and offer types.
What is PayPal Reference Transactions?
Reference transactions is a Billing Agreement created between buyer & seller when a buyer makes a purchase from your store.
You can initiate subsequent transactions and capture future payments against this Billing Agreement, without your buyer going through the checkout process again.
Buyers do not need to re-enter their PayPal details again or go through the same process again to make subsequent payments for the upsells. This enables you to charge the buyer with a single click.
Steps to enable PayPal Reference Transactions
Refer this in-detail article to enable PayPal Reference Transactions on your WooCommerce store.
Why the term true one-click upsell?
Now, when users place their first order, Smart Offers plugin will provide a normal checkout – enter payment details and checkout is done.
But as users places their second/subsequent orders, one-click purchase will kick-in.
Hence, let users purchase ‘n’ number of times. Checkout will happen in a single click every time. No details asked again.
Remember, with Smart Offers, (if you have reference transaction enabled) then only you can do true one-click upsell.
You may come across other plugins in the market that says one-click upsell for PayPal. But actually, you are shown an upsell offer during your purchase process and every-time you need to enter payment details to checkout. So that’s not true one-click upsell.
