This article will teach you about limitations and restrictions with the PayPal V1 integration. You should review these limitations if you intend to set up a 3rd party PayPal product.
Why you would need this
If you wish to use PayPal alongside another payment gateway and have set up a 3rd party PayPal product, this includes some notes and limitations to keep in mind.
What you will need
Note 1. Select the Proper Button Type
- When creating the PayPal button, you will need to select "Buy Now" for a one-time purchase product.
- For a subscription product, make sure to choose "Subscriptions" as the button type.
- Buttons created using shopping Cart will not function properly.
Note 2. Order Confirmation
- ClickFunnels Order Confirmation pages will not work with PayPal, so direct your customers to a Thank You page after purchase.
- The reason the Order Confirmation page type won't work is that a customer coming from PayPal to the Order Confirmation page will appear as a new visitor due to how cookies and page linking.
Note 3. Fulfillment Email
- Make sure the SMTP settings in your account (My Account > Settings > SMTP Email Settings) are set up properly for your customers to receive a fulfillment e-mail after purchase.
Note 4. Order Testing
- The only way to really test your PayPal integration is to purchase the product with another PayPal account.
- You could also get a PayPal sandbox testing account. However, this requires a more complex setup and is not something we can provide support for.
- Our recommendation for testing is to lower your price to $1 and have a friend/colleague buy with their PayPal account. You can always refund after your test.
