Setup PayPal Account for MC Trade Integration

Implementing PayPal

PayPal’s technical support group informed us that we are the first company in the world to implement their direct payment application into a database management system.  This is another industry first delivered to you by MC Trade!


Please note that you must have a PayPal Payments Pro account type to integrate with MC Trade. This account type allows for back end API calls from MC Trade to your gateway.
