Does OCS support PayPal's Payflow Pro service?

Postby ccharles » Wed Oct 26, 2011 7:24 am

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: ... ew-outside

And the documentation about using PayPal with OxS: ... S_Payments

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.
