Offering PayPal Credit
By default, the PayPal Express Checkout integration includes an option for customers to use PayPal Credit. The button for this option appears right below the PayPal Checkout button:
PayPal Credit gives your US-based customers the ability to pay for their order over a longer period of time. Regardless of whether a customer chooses PayPal Checkout or PayPal Credit, you'll receive the full funds for the sale up front. PayPal provides the full amount to the merchant, then allows the customer to make payments toward their PayPal balance, just like a credit card.
PayPal check-out also includes an option for Venmo, in the event that the customer has a Venmo account. This integration is handled exclusively by PayPal. For more information, take a look at their support article.
