How to setup 'PayPal Website Payments Pro' payment gateway ?

When using Website Payments Pro option, customers can complete signup process and pay from HotSpot software and there is no need to transfer customer to PayPal site. Processing is faster but this option requires PayPal account with Payments Pro option enabled which is usually charged monthly by PayPal. This option is available to US, UK and  Canada customers.

To configure PayPal Website Payments Pro, follow these steps:

  1. Open HotSpot - Setup - Credit Cards - Gateway page
  2. Select PayPal from Payment Processing Gateway dropdown menu
  3. Check Website Payments Pro box
  4. Enter Paypal API username
  5. Enter Paypal API password
  6. Go to your PayPal merchant account and from Profile - API Credentials get your signature
  7. Type it in HotSpot as API Signature
  8. Click Save button

Go to Setup - Whitelist - Host Whitelist and refresh it, make sure that following addresses are listed:

paypal.com
*.paypal.com
*.sandbox.paypal.com
paypalobjects.com
*.paypalobjects.com
paypalssl.doubleclick.net
paypal.112.2o7.net
securepics.ebaystatic.com
mobile.paypal.com
m.paypal.com
and HotSpot public IP .

If you are not getting PayPal pages, or a response is very slow, please check at PayPal support what are the current requirements for host whitelisting since sometimes change the servers involved in payment processing.
