For those of you that use both Infusionsoft and PayPal, I’ve got good news for you: you will be able to accept PayPal recurring subscription payments using Infusionsoft from April 2014.
Infusionsoft has partnered with PayPal to give a better experience for people that want to pay with PayPal.
The current limitations are:
- That you can only use PayPal to accept one off payments.
- The customer has to enter all of their details on the Infusionsoft checkout form and then when they get redirected to PayPal, they have to re-enter all of their billing/shipping information Infusionsoft hasn’t given much details about the actual that
Infusionsoft hasn’t given much details beyond the fact that you will be able to accept recurring payments with PayPal and that the shopping cart experience will be improved now that the customer doesn’t have to re-enter their details which certainly is a nuisance.
In order to take advantage of the integration, you’ll need to have a PayPal business account. They have business accounts that are free and business accounts where you pay monthly subscription fee.
If you already have a Business PayPal account, you will need to have your PayPal API username, API password, and API Signature which you will enter in your Infusionsoft eCommerce settings.
