Why Integrate PayPal With AccessAlly
AccessAlly includes a built-in ecommerce feature that’s designed especially for you if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to sell a small variety of products and/or subscriptions from inside your membership site.
Note: when you are placing testing orders, you cannot use the same PayPal account that was integrated in the AccessAlly -> General Settings -> Payment section.
Please note that the PayPal integration does not support the subscription model (with recurring payments). If you wish to offer recurring payments, make sure your site is integrated with Stripe.

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.
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.
