Send CC info to Virtual Terminal in PayPal with a form
Can't find this info anywhere

 5:39 am on Jan 27, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hi guys,

I have PayPal Virtual Terminal and PayFlow Pro (I think). The virtual terminal works great, but it's tedius to copy and paste every order into the terminal.

I know you can send info to PayPal through Payflow Link, but it's an extra fee, and I wonder if anyone knows where I can find a simple html form with the required variables to send cc info to paypal, and get a response back if it's been approved.

I searched but I have go through so much non relevant info, I can't find what I need... thanks guys

Doubt there will be a simple HTML form, but have you looked at IPN?

Paypal has a Community Forum that you might be able to find the code. But you need to first check to see if you have the Payflow Pro.

I am just curious how you are getting the credit card numbers now. Storing them is very risky and emailing is even riskier. Plus, you cannot store the CVV either.

If you are paying about $60 a month, then you have Payflow Pro. A bit expensive for a gateway, but some times merchants might use Paypal and then think they have to use them to "upgrade".

You can also find code on their https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/marketingweb?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/home (PayPal Integration Website) (sorry I could not add the URL because of the = sign in the URL.

rocknbil, IPN is for website payments, the problem is sending the cc info to paypal to get processed....

How do I check if I have Payflow pro?

Look at your account - it should tell you the services you signed up for. Look at how much you are paying - if one fee is $59.95, you probably have Payflow Pro.

It sounds like though you need a developer to help you set this up. If you have an SSL on your site, you can process the transactions immediately and then you won't need to contact the customer if the transaction fails.

You have to put this on a web site somewhere, don't you?

Just curious, was this ever resolved? I've worked with PayPal's gateway before and could write a simple ASP script that handles the POST... for a small fee :)

Let me know if you're interested, could have this done in a day I think.

This was never resolved, it looks like I would need to get payflow link... is this true?
