Using PayPal as a Payment Method
Once you have the gateway configured, you must then offer your clients a means of entering their PayPal account information into Fusebill. PayPal offers many different ways of integrating Express Checkout into your web application. Please consult the documentation at https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/products/#ec or contact PayPal for more information.
Fusebill also offers a simple hosted customer self-service portal where customers can update their own payment method. This portal can be configured upon request in your Fusebill account; additional fees may apply. Those who already have hosted pages included in their Fusebill account and who enable PayPal Express Checkout will automatically see support for PayPal in their hosted pages.
There is also a "brute force" method of entering a customer's BAID (Billing Agreement ID) by typing it directly into the customer's record in Fusebill UI. See Payment Methodsfor more information.
For more information about PayPal and BAID transactions, refer to https://www.paypalobjects.com/webstatic/en_US/developer/docs/pdf/pfp_expresscheckout_pp.pdf. - Chapter 2 - Page 19 - Billing Agreements and Reference Transactions.
