Step 1: Enable PayPal Integration To Take Payments Through PayPal

Step 2: Integrate the Payment Process With Your CRM

AccessAlly requires additional configuration to link the payment process with your CRM platform.

There is no additional configuration required for Active Campaign.

By default, AccessAlly adds the Drip tracking Javascript to every page to the site, so you don't need to manually add it.

Testing & What The End Client Will See

It’s always a good idea to test your integration with a small dollar payment (you can set up a coupon for yourself here).

On the 2nd step of the order form, you’ll be able to select the PayPal option (if you also have Stripe enabled).

Then you’ll see a button to click to process the payment in PayPal. When you click it, you’ll see a new screen open up prompting you to login to PayPal.

After logging in, you’ll be able to choose the source of funds. This does include any linked credit cards or bank accounts, as well as PayPal Credit.
