PayPal Classic ousts PayPal Express Checkout

Continuing issues with PayPal Express Checkout in the shopping cart mean this feature has now been removed. Fighting 15s still accepts PayPal payments, but does so through the PayPal Classic interface, which presents as a payment option when a customer proceeds through the checkout process.

Express Checkout is the PayPal option that adds a PayPal button in the cart and in theory speeds up the checkout process by using a customer’s details from their PayPal account. However, it appears to be over-sensitive to differences in customer and delivery addresses, and is giving false failed payment reports.

A reminder that our preferred payment processor is WorldPay, a service provided by Royal Bank of Scotland that accepts most major credit cards (but not charge cards such as Amex). RBS, and therefore Worldpay, is regulated by the FSA: PayPal is not.
