How to configure the service?
Login your PayPal personal account and select SELLER TOOLS in the settings menu:
Then go to Instant payment notifications:
Click Edit settings
Enter URL from the Payment Methods settings in InfluencerSoft as URL-address for notifications. To do this, go to Store – Settings and click PayPal:
Copy the link on the opened page in a Payment Guide tab.
Paste the link in the field Notification URL and tick Receive IPN messages (Enabled)
Save the settings. Integration has been successfully completed.
Additionally, you can redirect the clients to a separate page after PayPal payment (this is optional).
This page could describe what a client should do once he/she pays for a product, or metrics codes or tracking pixels can be embedded.
This can be done in InfluencerSoft in Websites – Pages.
Once the page is prepared, and the required codes are embedded, copy its address and go to PayPal account in Website preferences:
Enable Auto Return and paste the link to the page with the instruction where a client goes to after completing a payment.
Save the settings.
Let us return to InfluencerSoft. In Payment methods, enter your email to which PayPal is registered. You can also set the restrictions.
Integration with PayPal system has now been successfully completed! Now all orders paid in this system will be automatically paid in our service!
If you have not received any notification from PayPal about the payment
PayPal can send the notifications about the payments with a 12-hour delay. If the payment is displayed in PayPal account, but InfluencerSoft order is not paid yet, then follow the link to History of instant payment notifications and send the notifications again.
If a transaction cannot be highlighted, repeat the same procedure in several hours, the notification is likely to be sent by that time, and the order status in InfluencerSoft personal account will change to “Paid”.
