Installation

Install using easy_install:

easy_install paypalrestsdk

Install using pip:

pip install paypalrestsdk

Configuration

import paypalrestsdk
paypalrestsdk.configure({
  "mode": "sandbox", # sandbox or live
  "client_id": "EBWKjlELKMYqRNQ6sYvFo64FtaRLRR5BdHEESmha49TM",
  "client_secret": "EO422dn3gQLgDbuwqTjzrFgFtaRLRR5BdHEESmha49TM" })

Configure through environment variables:

export PAYPAL_MODE=sandbox   # sandbox or live
export PAYPAL_CLIENT_ID=EBWKjlELKMYqRNQ6sYvFo64FtaRLRR5BdHEESmha49TM
export PAYPAL_CLIENT_SECRET=EO422dn3gQLgDbuwqTjzrFgFtaRLRR5BdHEESmha49TM

Configure through a non-global API object

import paypalrestsdk
my_api = paypalrestsdk.Api({
  'mode': 'sandbox',
  'client_id': '...',
  'client_secret': '...'})

payment = paypalrestsdk.Payment({...}, api=my_api)

Create Payment

import paypalrestsdk
import logging

# Include Headers and Content by setting logging level to DEBUG, particularly for
# Paypal-Debug-Id if requesting PayPal Merchant Technical Services for support
logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)

paypalrestsdk.configure({
  "mode": "sandbox", # sandbox or live
  "client_id": "EBWKjlELKMYqRNQ6sYvFo64FtaRLRR5BdHEESmha49TM",
  "client_secret": "EO422dn3gQLgDbuwqTjzrFgFtaRLRR5BdHEESmha49TM" })

payment = paypalrestsdk.Payment({
  "intent": "sale",
  "payer": {
    "payment_method": "credit_card",
    "funding_instruments": [{
      "credit_card": {
        "type": "visa",
        "number": "4417119669820331",
        "expire_month": "11",
        "expire_year": "2018",
        "cvv2": "874",
        "first_name": "Joe",
        "last_name": "Shopper" }}]},
  "transactions": [{
    "item_list": {
      "items": [{
        "name": "item",
        "sku": "item",
        "price": "1.00",
        "currency": "USD",
        "quantity": 1 }]},
    "amount": {
      "total": "1.00",
      "currency": "USD" },
    "description": "This is the payment transaction description." }]})

if payment.create():
  print("Payment created successfully")
else:
  print(payment.error)

Get Payment details

# Fetch Payment
payment = paypalrestsdk.Payment.find("PAY-57363176S1057143SKE2HO3A")

# Get List of Payments
payment_history = paypalrestsdk.Payment.all({"count": 10})
payment_history.payments

Execute Payment

Only for Payment with payment_method as "paypal"

payment = paypalrestsdk.Payment.find("PAY-57363176S1057143SKE2HO3A")

if payment.execute({"payer_id": "DUFRQ8GWYMJXC"}):
  print("Payment execute successfully")
else:
  print(payment.error) # Error Hash

OpenID Connect

import paypalrestsdk
from paypalrestsdk.openid_connect import Tokeninfo, Userinfo

paypalrestsdk.configure({
  "mode": "sandbox",
  "client_id": "CLIENT_ID",
  "client_secret": "CLIENT_SECRET",
  "openid_redirect_uri": "http://example.com" })

# Generate login url
login_url = Tokeninfo.authorize_url({ "scope": "openid profile"})

# Create tokeninfo with Authorize code
tokeninfo = Tokeninfo.create("Replace with Authorize code")

# Refresh tokeninfo
tokeninfo = tokeninfo.refresh()

# Create tokeninfo with refresh_token
tokeninfo = Tokeninfo.create_with_refresh_token("Replace with refresh_token")

# Get userinfo
userinfo  = tokeninfo.userinfo()

# Get userinfo with access_token
userinfo  = Userinfo.get("Replace with access_token")

# Generate logout url
logout_url = tokeninfo.logout_url()
