Paypal Payflow Integration Changes
I received an email today from Paypal and I need to know what I need to do to make these changes. Where might I find the data that needs to be changed?
We want to let you know about upcoming changes that may impact your Payflow integration.
Because these changes are technical in nature, we advise that you consult with your partner, website vendor, or individuals responsible for your Payflow integration. They will be able to identify what, if any, changes are needed. Please forward the information below to your technical contact for evaluation. We’re here to help your technical contact to ensure you continue to process payments through your current integration with us.
The following Payflow URLs are scheduled to be deprecated on August 3, 2015:
If you’re currently integrated with one of these URLs, you’ll need to update your integration to the corresponding paypal.com URL. Not doing so may impact your ability to accept and process payments. Following are the URLs that need to be replaced, along with the correct endpoint that needs to be used:
URL to move to
payflowpro.paypal.com (include USER, VENDOR, PARTNER, and PWD parameters in all API requests)
We’re planning maintenance that will involve shutting down the URLs for specific periods of time to assist merchants with identifying whether they need to make changes to their integration. Please watch the alert section in the PayPal Manager for any updates, as well as the URL outage schedule.
For instructions on modifying your integration to conform to these changes, as well as the planned outage schedule, we’ve set up a microsite with detailed information. Any changes to the schedule will be updated on the microsite.
If you have any questions, please contact our Merchant Technical Services team for support.
We appreciate your patience as we continue to improve our services. Thank you for your understanding.
