Configure PayPal Payflow Link

When the PayPal Payflow Link payment provider is configured in the PayPal Manager BackOffice it should be also configured in Sana Admin.
To configure PayPal Payflow Link:
Step 1: In Sana Admin click: Setup > Ordering & checkout > Payment methods > Configuration > PayPal Payflow Link.

Step 2: Choose the appropriate payment integration mode.

There are two modes: test and live. Test mode allows to simulate the payment process as if it is a real payment and helps to make sure that everything will behave the same way when you go live. Live mode implies that a customer makes a real purchase using already configured payment provider and methods.

Step 3: Configure the payment provider by entering the payment provider specific settings of the test/ live account.

The table below provides the description of the PayPal Payflow Link payment provider fields:

Field Description
LOGIN This is the name of the Payflow Link account used by PayPal. This information will be provided by PayPal when creating an account.
Default value: depends on the account (test/ live)
PARTNER This is the partner of the Payflow Link account. The partner for the accounts directly acquired from PayPal is 'PayPal'. For the accounts acquired from the PayPal resellers, the partner will be different.
Default value: PayPal
SHOWCONFIRM Indicates whether an additional confirmation page is shown during the payments via PayPal. Allowed values are 'true' and 'false'.
Default value: true
IpRange It is used as a security measure to prevent fraud. Some payment providers pass the payment status of an order by calling the confirm page. In this case it is possible for a malicious user to simulate this call and change the status of the order. To prevent this, a check on the IP of the call can be made by specifying the allowed IP (ranges) in this field.
Multiple values can be separated by the '|' character.

More detailed information about the PayPal parameters can be found on the official PayPal web site. 

When PayPal Payflow Link is configured you can set up the necessary payment methods in Sana Admin that are supported by PayPal Payflow Link.

For information about how to create and configure payment methods in Sana Admin, see 'Payment methods'.

Test the payment/checkout flow to see if everything works fine using the created payment methods and the correct payment statuses.

When everything is done and tested, keep an eye on the payment log in the following days to be sure that everything is configured correctly.
