enter image description here Had install a fresh wordpress installation on localhost, and after install woocommerce plugin, the paypal default - payment isnt there on woocommerce tab "payments". On the live website paypal continues working just fine. Do I need a plugin now, anyone knows something about it

    It should be enabled as long as your store's currency is supported by PayPal. If that's not it there's probably somewhere it's enabled or disabled in the admin site.

Paypal standard is now hidden for new installs, possible to read about it in https://developer.woocommerce.com/2021/07/12/developer-advisory-paypal-standard-will-be-hidden-on-new-installs/

for those who want to use it copy paste this code on functions.php

add_filter( 'woocommerce_should_load_paypal_standard', '__return_true' );

Since july 2021 woocommerce recommends users to use the recommended PayPal extension instead
