PayPal Payments via PDT

To enable Payment Data Transfer, do the following:

  • Check your account status. Login to your PayPal business account on Click the profile icon () in the top right. From the Business and Profile pop-up menu, select Profile and settings.

    Note: If you do not see the profile icon in the top right, go to Profile within the My Account tab. If you do not see this option either, upgrade your account to a PayPal business or premier account.

    Click on My settings and confirm your Account type is either Premier or Business.

  • Modify your PayPal Profile. Navigate to My selling tools, and click Update next to Website preferences, which takes you to the Website payment preferences page. Enable Auto Return for Website Payments. Then, specify a Return URL and enable Payment Data Transfer. Payment Data Transfer requires the Return URL setting. PayPal displays an Identity Token. Copy and save it; add it to the script on your Return URL page.
