This extension allows payments to be processed via the Payflow gateway.
To get started you need to define a new payment method using the Spree admin interface. Select "Gateway::Payflow" as the provide, complete the other details and save. After the record is saved additional fields are displayed on the form that will need to be completed, i.e.
Server: test or live Password: password you use to sign into the payflow manager Login: marchant login you use to sign into the payflow manager Partner: partner value sent to you in the email to confirm your payflow account setup
Test Payflow account
To set up a test Payflow account follow these instructions:
To set up a Payflow account for testing, you would walk through the sign up process at https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_payflow-get-started-outside&from_ppip=payflow_pro as if you were signing up for a live Payflow account. Once you get to the section in the sign up process where it is asking for the billing information, just cancel out of the process. This creates a test account for you at this point, which you can access now by signing into manager.paypal.com with the login and password that you created. You will also need to supply the vendor sent to you in the sing up confirmation email. You will not use the sandbox for a test Payflow account.
In my testing I could not see the test transactions I created via the payflow manager at manager.paypal.com, I could however access them via the "Search Transactions" feature by entering in the transaction ID.
Spree checkout process
For credit card payments the confirm step is not displayed so the final page in the checkout process is the payment page. The reason for this is explained in more detail here:
I've included the payments partial in this extension where I've renamed the button from "save & continue" to "Confirm & complete order". This partial may need further modification to display a page more like the normal confirm page providing more details about the order.
UPDATE: I have turned the Confirm step back on default by setting payment_profiles_supported? to true. This is NOT recommended.
