Ability to restrict PayPal buttons to checkout

New Community Member
Posted on

Hi I'm working on a website in the UK that sells alcohol.

We have to have an age verification process at checkout which verifies the customer before the payment methods are displayed. This is based on the shipping and registered address as well as customer age. Looking at PayPal Braintree, which we want to incorporate on the site, it says in a video "", clicking the PayPal payment method in the cart, PayPal customers can bypass the website address and shipping details. Is this the case as our verification process will be bypassed also? Is there a way of only having the payment button in the checkout?

Hi @Markf120,


Thank you for contacting PayPal community.


Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.


PayPal is a payment gateway, which will receive the payload (i.e customer details, amount, order details etc ) from merchant website and process them accordingly.


Merchants should handle their internal website code and pass the payment request details to PayPal system.


In your scenario I request to pass the payment payload details to PayPal system, after you process age verification using your internal website code.


I request to please use PayPal Smart Button integration and you can give customers multiple funding sources.


You can also disable unwanted funding source.


Based on your specific configuration and a buyer's location and cookies, Checkout dynamically presents the appropriate funding sources to give your buyers more ways to pay. The buttons that display are decided automatically, based on a range of factors, including:


• Buyer country
• Device type
• Funding sources the buyer has opted to see.

As a result, each buyer might see a unique combination of buttons. To prevent certain funding source buttons from displaying, see Disable Funding(

I request to please contact your website developer to follow the below guide links to disable the unwanted funding source during PayPal checkout.

Thank you for understanding and patience.
