What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Does OCS support PayPal's Payflow Pro service?

The PayPal documentation specifies that users should set up a "PayPal Website Payments Standard" account.

Our institution has not approved standard PayPal accounts for this type of transaction, but has approved PayPal's Payflow Pro service. Does OCS work with this type of account?

Here's a little bit about the Payflow Pro service:

And the documentation about using PayPal with OxS:

Hi ccharles,

I'm not 100% sure, but I suspect that you might have to modify a current payment plugin to work with PayFlow. That said, it does look like they have a fair amount of documentation on their website, and it shouldn't be too difficult to do if you know PHP. If you have any development experience on your team, we encourage you to take a look at their docs, and let us know if you have any questions about implementation from the OxS side of things. If others are interested in this kind of functionality of course, we can look at implementing it as a feature request.
