Configuring PayPal Gateway

We currently integrate with PayPal Website Payments Pro and Paypal Express in which PayPal Website Payments Pro can be compared to other credit card payment gateways, while Paypal Express is the typical PayPal module that allows customers to use their PayPal account to make payments online. For documentation on how to configure Paypal Express, please visit: Configuring Paypal Express Gateway.

To configure PayPal Website Payments Pro Gateway into your Lime Light CRM, you will go to Payment Systems>Gateway Providers and select PayPal in your Gateway Accounts drop down menu. Click on “Add Gateway” and fill out the gateway parameters.

These parameters are briefly described here for your reference:

API Username: Same username that you have set up for your account with PayPal.

API Password: Same password that you have set up for your account with PayPal.

Currency: PayPal currently supports USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, AUD and ZAR currencies. You can select one currency per gateway account.

Test Mode: Set to YES if you want to use the PayPal Gateway in Test Mode.

API Signature: Same signature that you have set up for your account with PayPal.

Use Decline Salvage?: Select "Yes" if you're using the decline salvage service that is offered through Verifi.

Gateway Alias: name that you will assign to the gateway. This is for internal purposes only; it helps you identify a specific gateway account among several of them in your CRM.


Once your gateway profile has been created, then you will go through your campaigns and assign the gateway to the corresponding campaign(s).

Additional PayPal Notes:

-The PayPal Gateway is for credit card processing ONLY.
