The payment types are provided as an iframe which PayPal itself hosts. According to the chosen payment type, the customer gets, as next step, either the PayPal login page, a form to indicate credit card details or details to generate an invoice. The invoice is issued on the page where customers can find invoice details.

To use the German PayPal Plus plugin, companies need to have a registered office in Germany. Additionally, they require a PayPal account and need to apply for the use once.
