PayPal Direct Payment

  1. iamcanadian1973

    I've successfully got Gravity Forms working with PaPal Payment Pro/ Recurring payments. I'm using the PayPal Framework plugin.

    I'm using the gform_after_submission hook to send the request

    then I need to get the ipn data and process the success or failure. this is the part I'm having trouble with. I found this answer here:

    And was wondering if that would be the best/only way to go. I would really like to be able to process and display the result data. I was also thinking I could have a hidden field in the entry table and just store a serialized array there and then redirect on success and use the entry id?

    There is the response from the direct call, and then the response after with the ipn, so I would really like to be able to store both and access the ipn success fail.

    I do have the PayPal addon, and have used it , but wasn't able to do it this time because I needed to be able to set the recurring start date.

    If you could help that be awesome, I think this would also be great for others in the future looking for this functionality.

  2. The Gravity Forms PayPal Add-On implements IPN handling. What I would suggest doing is use it as a reference and take a look at it's IPN handler code. You could then use that as a guide to create your own IPN handler code to work with PayPal Pro.

    One thing to note... we have a PayPal Pro Add-On in active development. It is still a couple weeks away from a beta release but it is in active development.

    I actually used the PayPal addon and the authorize addon to build my own version. I didn't have enough time to do it as elegantly as you would but it does work! :P

    As mentioned in an additional forum question, making the credit card field splittable into first/lastname would be super helpful and I would guess necessary for PayPal Pro.

  4. Carl, don't suppose the PPPro add-on will have some form of support for promotion codes to discount final form totals? That would make things perfect..
