General

Return URL

Specifies a URL to which the buyer's browser is redirected after completing payment on the PayPal confirmation page. We recommend creating a Thank you page on your website and using its URL.

Important: The return URL values must be set to allow PayPal payments. Additionally, the specified page must contain the PayPal payment execution web part, which processes the payment URL parameters provided by PayPal and completes transactions.

Transaction type

Sets the type of transactions used by the PayPal gateway during payment:

  • Direct Payment – successful transactions are marked for immediate funds transfer (capture).
  • Authorization with Delayed Capture – only authorization occurs during the initial payment (places a hold on the cardholder's available fund limit). Capturing of funds needs to be done manually at a later time by editing orders. Delayed capture transactions are suitable for stores where products are physically shipped some time after orders are placed.
