Hide Place Order button (on WooCommerce Checkout page) when PayPal payment method (or any other) is chosen

With the latest release of the WooCommerce PayPal Payments module, there have been a lot of complaints.

A client’s site was not working properly where if someone clicked the Place Order button it showed an error. But, the PayPal buttons below the Place Order button work.

Hide checkout button when PayPal payment method is chosen

* Hide checkout button when PayPal payment method is chosen - BEGIN */
 add_filter('woocommerce_order_button_html', 'remove_place_order_button_for_specific_payments' );
function remove_place_order_button_for_specific_payments( $button ) {
    // HERE define your targeted payment(s) method(s) in the array
    $targeted_payments_methods = array('ppcp-gateway');
    $chosen_payment_method     = WC()->session->get('chosen_payment_method'); // The chosen payment

    // For matched payment(s) method(s), we remove place order button (on checkout page)
    if( in_array( $chosen_payment_method, $targeted_payments_methods ) && ! is_wc_endpoint_url() ) {
        $button = ''; 
    return $button;

// jQuery - Update checkout on payment method change
add_action( 'wp_footer', 'custom_checkout_jquery_script' );
function custom_checkout_jquery_script() {
    if ( is_checkout() && ! is_wc_endpoint_url() ) :
