If an online retailer has PayPal's express checkout feature, the Checkout with PayPal button sends shoppers to log into their PayPal account, rather than fill out payment and billing information through the retailer's site. This method lets you authorize the retailer to take payment through your preferred method specified in your PayPal account and asks you to verify this authorization. Once PayPal clears the payment method through the retailer's site, the transaction is complete without the excess time needed to fill out additional information.

Express Checkout allows vendors to add the option of using PayPal to pay at checkout in exchange for a small percentage of revenue from the sales. The fees associated with adding the service is 2.9 percent plus an additional 30 cents per purchase, according to PayPal's website. When a retailer adds the service their site is linked to PayPal's online shopping hub, which allows for more exposure to potential customers.
