Paying via your PayPal account  simply take payees to your PayPal account for them to make payment and PayPal Braintree keeps them on your site.

Credit card number fields are hosted by Braintree and embedded on your site so that sensitive information never touches your server! This means that the integration is PCI DSS v3.0 SAQ-A compliant. They maintain the highest levels of security. Rest easy knowing that your transactions are under virtual lock and key.
