You can use the PayPal connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from PayPal and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from PayPal, you first must establish a connection to PayPal. Follow these steps to connect PayPal to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the PayPal row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Schema - Select the schema that you want to use. The default schema is SOAP.

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your PayPal account.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to your PayPal account.

    • Signature - Enter your API signature. To generate those credentials:

      1. Log in to your PayPal business account and select Profile > My Selling Tools.

      2. Locate the Selling Online section and click Update for the API Access item.

      3. Generate the API signature by clicking Request API Credentials on the API Access page. Then select Request API Signature and click Agree and Submit to generate the API signature.

    • Use Sandbox - Specify whether you want to connect to a sandbox account. The default value is False.

  6. Click Connect to GoogleAnalytics to connect to your Google Analytics account.

  7. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  8. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
