New PayPal module (Latest API 2.0) configuration in the advanced variant for osCommerce 4-based systems

Are you looking for a seamless payment solution for your osCommerce 4-based system? Look no further! The latest PayPal module (API 2.0) offers an advanced variant that allows you to easily configure alternative payment methods and accept credit card payments without your customers ever leaving your site. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the simple steps to set up the new PayPal module and take advantage of its powerful features.


Configuring the New PayPal Module

To get started, follow these steps to configure the new PayPal module:


1. Webhook Setup:


Ensure smooth transactions and order processing by setting up webhooks.

Click on "Account Details" and select "Advanced Settings."

Then, click on the "Subscribe" button next to "Required Webhooks" and confirm the action in the pop-up window.

2. Custom Card Fields:


If you want to display fields for customers to enter credit card information on the checkout page, check the box next to "Status."

By default, the required settings are already chosen.

Click the "Update" button to save your preferences.


Unlocking the Power of PayPal Module Settings

With the new PayPal module, you gain access to a range of settings that offer you more control over the payment process:


Enable PayPal Checkout: Accept PayPal Checkout payments easily.
Disable PayPal for Guests: When virtual products are in the cart, guests (express) orders won't require any address information.
Show PayPal Buttons: Choose to display PayPal buttons on the Product page, Shopping Cart page, Checkout Login page, and Checkout page.
Depending on the design, you can select a horizontal layout with one PayPal button.
Show PayPal Pay Later Info: Provide customers with the convenience of PayPal Pay Later information (available in most countries).
Save Order Before Payment: Recommended for businesses with high order volumes and alternative payment methods, this option slows down the checkout process but ensures exact invoice IDs are transferred to PayPal.
Transaction Method: Choose between (pre)authorize or automatic payment withdrawal (sale) for transactions.

Order Status: Set the order status for pending, paid, and canceled orders.
Payment Zone: Restrict PayPal payments to specific geographical zones if needed.
Transaction Server: Select between live or testing (sandbox) gateway server for transaction processing.
Dynamic Button Customization: Customize the appearance of PayPal buttons with options like button color, shape, size, and label.

Enable Payment Methods: Let the system automatically choose available payment methods based on country and PayPal account settings if none are selected.
Debug E-Mail Address: Set an email address to receive parameters of invalid transactions for debugging purposes.
Sort Order of Display: Organize the display order of payment methods, with the lowest value shown first.


Restrictions and Localization

The new PayPal module also offers useful restrictions and localization options:


Customer Group and Country Restrictions: Make PayPal available only to specific customer groups or countries.
Section-Specific Availability: Enable PayPal for specific sections on your website, such as checkout, quotations, and samples.
Translation Tool: Easily translate configuration titles into different languages for a global audience.
