PayflowPro connectors

  • Updated

The Optimizely Configured Commerce engineering team now has an integration with Spreedly, a global payments ecosystem. The addition of Spreedly grants clients access to more payment gateway options. Clients implementing new payment gateways on their Configured Commerce storefront must select a payment gateway and a payment method that Spreedly supports.

Paypal's, PayflowPro payment gateway, can be configured when completing an order in Optimizely Configured Commerce.

For more information regarding PayflowPro see the Paypal documentation found here.

Parameter List

The Configured Commerce plug-in builds the required parameter list. The resulting list of parameters specify the payment information for the transaction. The quotation marks " " at the beginning and end are required. The following is an example: TRXTYPE=S&TENDER=C&PARTNER=PayPal&VENDOR=SuperMerchant&USER=Sup erMerchant&PWD=SuperUserPassword&ACCT=5555555555554444&EXPDATE= 0308&AMT=123.00 The content of the PARMLIST varies by the type of transaction being processed. For example, a Void transaction requires a different set of parameters than a Sale.
