  • What e-comerce module are you using for your cart? Store? CartThrob? BrilliantRetail? These all support PayPal and Stripe, so I'm not clear on what your question actually is. Jun 13 '14 at 18:27
  • @DerekHogue I am using CartThrob and from the backend i have configured Paypal and stripe.

Since PayPal is an off-site payment gateway, whereas Stripe is an on-site gateway, you'll likely want separate checkout forms, since the final action of each will differ (the Stripe checkout form tokenizes the card and sends it for payment, whereas the PayPal checkout form sends the user to PayPal).

So, on the previous screen before the payment step, give users the option (credit card or PayPal), then send them to the respective template based on that.

Then you just need to use the gateway parameter (docs) of the checkout_form tag so that each gets processed properly.
