What is Paypal PayFlowPro

For more information see

Create PayFlowPro test account

To create a test paypal payproflow account all you need to do is go to and go through the registration flow. When it asks you for your credit card information, just drop out (close browser) and a test account will be created.

This is only for US accounts.

FYI, you can use the same account for both testing and live transactions at the same time, so if you are going to activate the account, create the login id accordingly.

After completing that step you will receive an email with login instructions.

After logging in you should create a seperate user account for getpaid.payflowpro to use.

Plone Setup

getpaid.payflowpro setup

  1. Enter Plone Site Setup -> GetPaid Setup
  2. Under ‘Payment Options’ select Paypal PayFlowPro
  3. Under Payment Processor Settings enter the login credentials for your PayFlowPro account. (See Create PayFlowPro test account above if you do not have one)


getpaid.payflowpro requires the following:


  • The login information should be encrypted (or minimally obfuscated) and not redisplayed to the user after it is entered.
  • Test refund. It’s imlemented, but I haven’t tested it since I can’t figure out how to refund an order in the UI. Plus who really want’s to give money back? ;)


1.1 (2009-08-19)

  • Store the processor id returned by payflowpro

1.0 (2009-07-22)

  • Handle expiration date as a string.

1.0b1 (2009-01-28)

  • Update README to include some information about PayFlowPro
  • remove bootstrap and buildout since this is not functional without GetPaid
  • Remove incorrect copyright. Only copyright message is in LICENSE
  • Update version to 1.0b1
  • Implement (but didn’t test) refunds
  • Remove IPaypalPayFlowProwProcessor since it didn’t add anything [larubbio]
Detailed Documentation

You will need to set this as your payment processor in the getpaid admin interface (Payment Options)

Last step is to enter your payflowpro account information (vendor, partner, username and password).
