Configuring PayPal Payments

PayPal Payments is the new seamless process for PayPal Express.  This new version allows you to redirect the customer to PayPal for payment without having to enter in any customer information.  This is a one time process that pulls all customer information from PayPal during the redirect process!


To configure PayPal Payments gateway into your Limelight CRM, you will go to Admin > Providers and select "Add New Provider Profile" from the Actions drop down menu.  Select 'Payment' as the type, select PayPal Payments from the Provider drop-down list, and fill out the required gateway parameters.  


These parameters are briefly described here for your reference:

Client Id: This will be provided by PayPal.

Client Secret: This will be provided by PayPal.

Currency: This gateway currently supports USD, EUR and GBP currencies.

Test Mode: Set to YES if you would like to use this gateway in test mode.



Once your gateway profile is configured, you will need to assign it to your campaign (s).
