Just installed the plugin - we had some CSS issues but the support was great and solved it in one day! The plugin seems to come without cookies - that is good.. so at the moment: looks very good.

On check out I would like to modify the text on the "Proceed to Paypal" button text. The only way is to modify the plugin code every time the plugin is updated. (approx line 52 plugins->express-checkout-paypal-payment-gateway-for-woocommerce->includes->class-paypal-express-api.php).
