Hides PayPal button on shopping cart immediately

Give shoppers a better checkout experience. Reduce cart abandonment rate.

What it does?

We know that some of you may want to get rid of the “Checkout with PayPal” button from your shopping cart page. You know this trick helps to create a smooth checkout workflow; because you simply do not want to send your customers to PayPal without including the shipping cost. And some of your customers has a coupon code ready to use but the PayPal pages don't show them a field to put it.

But you are not comfortable with coding or simply don’t want to mess with your theme’s files (who does?). That’s why we have created this APP. Once installed, the app adds a script to your shop that would automatically hide the “Checkout with PayPal” button in the shopping cart. It’s just that easy. Rest assured that you can still use PayPal payment gateway on the checkout page.


The benefit of the "PayPal Express Checkout" is like giving your customers a fast lane in the supermarket. With express checkout, your customers do not have to re-enter their address nor payment details because it's all available from their PayPal account.

But some merchants don’t want it on the shopping cart page because...

  1. The PayPal button is big and yellow, which may not look nice on everyone’s design theme.

  2. The button takes their customer to PayPal and requests to authorize an amount that doesn’t include shipping fees. Eventually, PayPal will send the customer back to Shopify for shipping options but some merchants don’t like this workflow.

Getting Started to hide the PayPal button

  1. Simply install this app. The PayPal button will be hidden from your shopping cart page immediately.

  2. Optional: Send us an email if you have the PayPal button in customer information checkout screen. We will complete the setup to hide that button within 1 business day.

Theme Compatibility

Works with every Free / Paid / Custom theme that comes with a PayPal button in shopping cart page. We are open if you have suggestions that can make this APP even better. Just send us an email, we are open-minded and like to speak with people.

Disclaimer: Read PayPal's policy before you decide to go ahead to hide the PayPal button. We're not liable for any loss for using our product and services.
