Setting up PayPal (through Braintree)

PayPal is yet another payment gateway that's possible to setup on your Subbly account. If you want to process payments from your customers, it's imperative that you have payment gateway enabled. If PayPal is your preferred payment gateway, this is how you should enable it on your Subbly account.


You are able to have both Stripe and PayPal integrated with your checkouts 

How to setup PayPal with Braintree?

In order to setup PayPal on your Subbly, you will first need to have active Braintree production account, as PayPal will need to be setup through Braintree in order to be able to receive and handle recurring payments for your store. 

You can apply for a production account with Braintree HERE

Based on the Braintree's due diligence, the time and effort that will take for them to submit your application for the production account may vary. Subbly does not have any impact on Braintree's decision nor can we help with expediting or troubleshooting with the process at this point as we're separate entities. 

You can open PayPal business account HERE

After you've been submitted for production account on Braintree and after you have active business account with PayPal, you can proceed with enabling and connecting PayPal to your Braintree as explained HERE

For reference, once inside your Braintree admin, you need to go to Processing section and to make sure to enable PayPal processing from there. 


Connecting Subbly with PayPal and Braintree

Now it's time to login to your Subbly account and head over to the Billing section. From there, you need to click on Create new gateway drop-down button and opt for PayPal via Braintree as in the picture below

You will be presented with the following window:

All of these values should be readily available in your Braintree account, so we'll need to head back to your Braintree admin now. From the main admin head over to the API section

From inside the API section, you will first see the Public Key, so please copy it to your Subbly admin. 

While on the same page and looking into your API Keys on Braintree, you can click on the View link to reveal your hidden Private Key. Proceed with revealing it and copying it to your Subbly admin. 

After Private Key is revealed, you will get the Merchant ID from the subsequent page as well, so feel free to copy that one to your Subbly admin

At this point, you will need only the Authorize Key to get everything ready. You will need to generate the key from the Tokenization Keys section of your Braintree admin if you haven't done that previously. If you already have this key generated, you just need to copy it. 

Please note that this screenshot was taken from a Sandbox environment, thus this tokenization key from the screenshot has a prefix of sandbox. Please note that, in order for this to work and for you to be eligible to take payments through PayPal on Subbly checkouts, you will need to apply to production account on Braintree. So this key will have a prefix of production in your case

It seems that you have everything ready now! Make sure to enable the PayPal switch on your Subbly admin and you should be good to go with another payment processor on your checkouts


How is PayPal being applied on the checkouts?

Now that you have PayPal connected to your account, your customers will be able to choose the preferred payment method once at the checkout. You can see here how available options are being displayed to the customer

Customers would be able to finish the checkout either by using their credit card (payment will be processed either through Stripe or through Braintree, whichever is made primary option from here), or by using their PayPal account.
