Is PayFlow Link?

Thread began 12/23/2014 4:47 pm by TroyD | Last modified 12/31/2014 6:42 pm by TroyD | 2665 views | 12 replies


They have their PayPal account upgraded and they also have a login at
So we have the Partner, Vendor, User, PW credentials.
And their service status is as follows;
PayPal Payments Pro - Live
Hosted Checkout Pages - Live
Payflow SKD/API (Full Access) - Live
Paypal Express Checkout - Live

Reading the tutorial for the Payments Advanced for CafeCommerce (I had read it's the same for eCart), it tells you to log into the PP Manager and go to Service Settings > Setup. Then turn "Silent Post" to YES and enable Secure Token.

Do we do this before doing anything to the site? Will this interfere with the currently working Express Checkout on their site?

Also, on that same setup screen at the top it has "Transaction Process Mode" set to "Test". Do we change that to "Live"?

And what about all that other stuff. Billing, Shipping, Payment Confirmation, etc.? All of that is handled by the eCart generated pages right? Do we leave that blank here?

Lastly, PayPal has a tooltip in the setup next to the secure token settings, where it says "What is this?"... it tells us we need to "...implement the secure token on your website before turning this feature on..."
Do they mean the SSL cert. or is there something that eCart will include on the site that this will be looking for?

Sorry for all the questions but I've been on the phone with an engineer from PayPal and so far it hasn't been helpful.
