PayPal Express Checkout

If you already accept credit cards online, you can decrease shopping cart abandonment and boost sales by adding the PayPal Express Checkout button to your site. It complements your existing payments solution and can open the door to over 137 million active PayPal accounts* who look for and use this fast, easy, and secure way to pay.

* Active accounts are those that have had activity in the past 12 months. (Source: PayPal Q313 Fast Facts)

PayPal Pro

PayPal Pro is an all-in-one payment solution that enables you to control your customers’ checkout experience from start to finish. It comes pre-integrated with your VirtueMart store, so is easy to switch on through the VirtueMart admininistration area.

Just completed the update. On the menu in Administration, the 'Shop' link does not work to be able to edit the shop. Is there a fix for this?

Always great Virtuemart keeps improving.
I hope soon the stockable varients plugin will work again, so stock works with child products.
