PayPal / Payflow: How To Setup & Process Credit Card Payments

Our product suite offers a payment processing integration with PayPal's payment gateway, Payflow.

This article will outline what is required from PayPal and what you will need to get started.

Sign Up For PayPal Payments Pro

You most likely have a PayPal Business account already. In order to use credit card processing on e-commerce platforms, you will need to add on the merchant account for payment processing.

PayPal's merchant account solution is PayPal Payments Pro. PayPal Payments Pro's payment gateway is called Payflow.

Juniper has an established integration with the Payflow gateway, which means all we require are your Payflow gateway credentials to connect your merchant account to accept credit cards.
