5 PayPal Payment Button Alternatives (And How to Install Them)

If you don’t want to use PayPal on your website, but still want to integrate a buy now button, don’t worry. There are several good alternatives to choose from.

Let’s look at the top 5 PayPal payment button alternatives, see how their features compare, and how to integrate each option.

The 5 PayPal payment button alternatives are:


Memberful is a good alternative to PayPal if you’re looking specifically to sell memberships to your audience. The tool allows you to easily add a recurring buy link to your site which opens a payment overlay or pop-up payment form.

Memberful only works with recurring payments (not one-time payments) and only if you’re using WordPress. If you’re using Wix, Squarespace, or any other content management system, you’re out of luck.

The tool is owned by Patreon, so it’s well-documented and supported and definitely a good option if you meet the above criteria.

What does it cost?

Memberful charges a monthly fee of $0-$100 and an addition transaction fee which ranges from 4.9%-10%. So it’s definitely on the more expensive side, especially if your business has higher payment volume.


ChargeKeep, our own tool, works with WordPress, Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, or any content management system. It’s probably one of the easiest, if not the easiest, way to integrate Stripe into your payment flow.

To get started, connect your Stripe account, add a payment form, and drop a link into your website to add a payment button.

What does it cost?

ChargeKeep is a monthly subscription and starts at $15/month. There are no additional per-transaction or volume fees. You only pay the payment processing fees levied by Stripe, which range from 1.9%-3.9% depending on the country your Stripe account is registered in.


MoonClerk, like ChargeKeep, allows you to create a payment form and drop a script into your website that connects that form to a payment button.

Unlike ChargeKeep, MoonClerk does not allow for a payment overlay or pop-up form, so upon clicking your buy button all of your customers are redirected to a MoonClerk-hosted payment page.

That payment page can be modified to more closely match your brand, but it still resides on MoonClerk’s URL address so it’s not the best checkout experience for your customers. It’s much more preferable to keep customers on your own website rather than putting in an extra checkout step and redirecting them to a separate domain.

What does it cost?

MoonClerk charges a fixed monthly fee that is based on your monthly transaction volume. For $15/month, you’ll be able to accept up to $2000 payments per month. After that, the price rises to $30 and month and goes up from there. Larger companies can expect to pay up to $500 per month.


PayWhirl is another tool that allows you connect your Stripe account, create a payment form (they call it a “widget”), and drop some code into your site to connects that form to a payment button.

Unlike ChargeKeep or MoonClerk, however, PayWhirl is a full-featured platform which, aside from payments forms, also allows you to create pricing tables, upsells, and more complex payment flows.

Those just starting out or those looking for the simplest solution possible, will not fall in love with PayWhirl. The interface is not intuitive and abundance of features simply adds more clutter.

What does it cost?

PayWhirl is a monthly subscription ranging from $49-$249 per month with an added per-transaction fee ranging from 0.5% to 2.0%. The higher subscription options have the lower fee, but regardless it’s still a pretty pricey tool.

If you’re looking for a simple PayPal button replacement, you’re much better off integrating one of the other tools above.

Would you rather not have to pay per transaction fees?

The last option for replacing your PayPal payment button is a tried-and-true one — WooCommerce. A warning before implementing this tool… WooCommerce is a full-fledged e-commerce store solution, so while you can add a payment button with it, it’s not the simplest option out there. Second, WooCommerce only works with WordPress.

To add a payment button with WooCommerce, you’ll need to download a secondary plugin such as WooCommerce Buy Now. In other words, there’s no quick way to add a buy now button with WooCommerce.

While a plugin like WooCommerce Buy Now works just fine, it’s an added step that most users probably don’t need.

What does it cost?

The basic WooCommerce Subscriptions license costs $199/year for a single website. 5 websites are $249/year and up to 25 are $399/year. In addition, a plugin like WooCommerce starts at $49 per year.

So right off the bat, you’re looking at spending at least $248 per year just to add a simple buy button to your website. WooCommerce is definitely not the most economical solution.
