AspDotNetStorefront integrates with 4 PayPal services to provide customers different checkout options:

PayPal Express Checkout - This service also takes customers off of the store site to pay, and brings them back for shipping and final order processing, providing notifications of new orders for store admins.

PayPal Payments Advanced - This option allows customers to pay by credit card or with their PayPal account. Payment is handled through a PayPal hosted customizable secure offsite form. This means your site never 'touches' the credit card information, which is great for PCI compliance. Note that if you enable PayPal Payments Advanced, you also enable PayPal Express Checkout.

PayPal Website Payments Pro - This solution allows customers to pay by credit card directly through the store site and the funds will quickly and easily be posted to the named PayPal account. Note that if you enable PayPal Website Payments Pro, you also enable PayPal Express Checkout.

PayPal PayFlow Pro - A very popular payment gateway among our user base. Payments are captured, transmitted and processed securely and funds will go directly to the merchant account of choice. Please see this page for setup information for the PayPal PayFlow Pro gateway. Note that if you enable PayPal PayFlow Pro, you also enable PayPal Express Checkout.

Note that PayPal Express and Advanced options now include the PayPal Credit feature.

PayPal Account Creation

These steps are required for PayPal Express and Website Payments Pro services. Version-specific additional directions are provided below.
  1. Open a PayPal Business account by clicking the PayPal logo at the top of this page.

  2. Log into your Paypal Account

  3. Click on the Profile tab

  4. Click the "View details" link in the API Access section

  5. Click the “Request API Credentials” link. If you see information on this page about 'Certificates', the wrong integration method was chosen on a previous attempt. Click the 'Remove' button to clear out the certificate, and then move on to step 6 choosing the Signature method.

  6. Choose the API Signature method

  7. Agree to the terms and click submit

  8. Click this link and enter the username and password you created for your PayPal Business account. You will be provided with the 3 API values needed for further steps below.

PayPal Express Checkout

Once you have followed the steps in the 'PayPal Account Creation' section and have your PayPal account details, to enable PayPal Express:

  1. In the admin console, go to Configuration > Site Setup Wizard.

  2. In the Configure Wallets section, click the configure link to the right of the PayPal Express Checkout entry.

  3. Enter the values you obtained from PayPal for the API Username, API Password, and API Signature.



  4. If running version 10.0.0 (this option is not found in version 10.0.1) then it is required to enable the Use PayPal Express Integrated Checkout option and click Save and Close.

  5. Finally, check the box next to PayPal Express Checkout and then click the Save button at the top or bottom of the page.

NOTE: The Integrated Checkout option is a lightbox overlay (your site is grayed-out behind it) allowing the customer to login and pay
through their PayPal account without appearing to leave the site. This is automatically enabled in version 10.0.1 and is required to be enabled in version 10.0.0

 

NOTE: Starting in version 10.0.3, it's possible to require phone numbers on PayPal Express orders. To enable this feature, you'll need to 'Require Contact Phone Number' in your Paypal configuration - see this page for more information: https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/My-account-settings-Archive/How-do-I-require-a-phone-number-from-my-customers/td-p/356200
