The CData Python Connector for PayPal models two PayPal APIs as relational databases, the REST API and the SOAP API. Set the Schema property and use the information in each section to select the proper API based on your project needs.
Using the REST API
The REST API is the newer API and is becoming more popular with PayPal users. However, the REST API lists only the transactions and actions made via the REST API and excludes the UI and the SOAP API.
See REST Data Model for the available entities in the REST API.
Using the SOAP API
The SOAP (Classic) API has full information on transactions, which includes transactions created from the UI, the REST API, and the SOAP API.
See SOAP Data Model for the available entities in the SOAP API.
