Spree PayPal Express

THIS IS NOT PRODUCTION READY.

This is a "re-do" of the official spree_paypal_express extension. The old extension is extremely hard to maintain and complex.

This extension purposely only uses PayPal's sandbox and never the live system. Please attempt to use this extension only in development and report issues.

Behind-the-scenes, this extension uses PayPal's Merchant Ruby SDK.

Installation

  1. Add this extension to your Gemfile with this line:

     gem 'spree_paypal_express', :github => "radar/better_spree_paypal_express", :branch => "2-0-stable"
    
  2. Install the gem using Bundler:

     bundle install
    
  3. Copy & run migrations

     bundle exec rails g spree_paypal_express:install
    

Sandbox Setup

PayPal

Go to PayPal's Developer Website, sign in with your PayPal account, click "Applications" then "Sandbox Accounts" and create a new "Business" account. Once the account is created, click on the triangle next to its email address, then "Profile". The "API Credentials" tab will provide your API credentials (probably). If this tab is blank, try refreshing the page.

You will also need a "Personal" account to test the transactions on your site. Create this in the same way, finding the account information under "Profile" as well. You may need to set a password in order to be able to log in to PayPal's sandbox for this user.

Spree Setup

In Spree, go to the admin backend, click "Configuration" and then "Payment Methods" and create a new payment method. Select "Spree::Gateway::PayPalExpress" as the provider, and click "Create". Enter the email address, password and signature from the "API Credentials" tab for the Business account on PayPal.

Production setup

PayPal

Sign in to PayPal, then click "Profile" and then (under "Account Information" on the left), click "API Access". On this page, select "Option 2" and click "View API Signature". The username, password and signature will be displayed on this screen.

If you are unable to find it, then follow PayPal's own documentation.

Spree Setup

Same as sandbox setup, but change "Server" from "sandbox" to "live".

Caveats

Caveat venditor

Paypal will refuse any order with a zero cost item. Any such item will be skipped and not displayed.

PayPal will also refuse any order where item total (before taxes and shipping costs) is zero. In this case the PayPal checkout page will simply display "Current order".
