Paypal Payments and PayPal Standard

Hi @ferreirex

Since WooCommerce version 5.5.0, PayPal Standard is hidden for new installations. PayPal urges everyone to use the PayPal Payments extension instead, which is our full-stack solution (credit card processing, PayPal checkout, subscriptions, pay later options, etc).

You can try to make this change on the Staging website. If your host doesn’t offer that option, we recommend WP Staging.

I hope this helps!
