Set your PayPal Express language

Shopify will communicate to PayPal Express which language to during checkout based on your store's checkout language.

If your checkout language is set to English, Shopify will try to detect the customer's location to tell PayPal which language to display to your customer.

Shopify will check:

  • The customer's shipping address.
  • The country where the customer is located based on their IP address.

If the customer's details cannot be determined before the customer is sent to PayPal to check out, PayPal will use your store address, as set in your General Settings to set the language your customer will see during checkout.
