Request to add Authorize Only payment method to PayPal Pro integration

    Asked on July 23, 2014 at 02:35 PM



    I know it's possible to authorize only with paypal standard.

    I saw a post from 2013 that said this was not possible with Paypal Pro.


    Have you updated you Paypal Pro integration to allow for just authorization?


    I cannot use Paypal standard (I have a paypal pro account) because it does not offer the option to enter credit cards right away (you have to open a paypal account).


    If you have not implemented this, can you provide a work around?

    Can I put the necessary code somewhere in your form?

    Would you have a widget or plugin I can use?


    Thanks for your help,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    As far as I can see, the Authorize Only payment method is not currently available for our PayPal Pro integration. I do no think that we can overcome it since the integration is hardcoded and there is no access from the form builder to the integration code.

    I have attached a feature request ticket about the Authorize Only payment method for PayPal Pro and escalated it to our Development Team. I hope that we will see that option implemented at some point.

    We will update this thread when we have any updates on the ticket.

    Thanks for your quick reply Mike.

    I guess you have no ETA for this, have you?

    Unfortunately we cannot give you an ETA. For now the ticket is still unassigned to a developer. 

    They will contact you via this thread once they have an update.

    Let us know if further support is needed.

    Thank you
