This new checkout process also appeals to less tech-savvy shoppers or first time online shoppers who may get confused or frightened off by the clunky redirects of PayPal.

PayPal is expected to roll out the new checkout experience with the larger retailers in the beginning, and later to medium as well as small merchants in the near future. In a nutshell, the PayPal in context checkout is a faster as well as an easier checkout that keeps customers on your website. In a nutshell, this checkout:

The screenshots released by PayPal reveal that the new in-context checkout appears as a pop-up within a retailer’s site that allows the customer to clearly see their shopping cart behind the popup. It also easily allows customers to switch between payment options. Thus customers are able to pay directly from their bank account, from their credit card, or even from their PayPal balance.
PayPal has also revealed that it will add more features to the in-context checkout soon. In the future, in-context checkout will include a range of features as well as support for authorization capture, reference transactions, recurring payments, adaptive payments, as well as digital goods.
