    Configuring 'Payment Data Transfer' (PDT) with PayPal

    With the second maintenance release of v14 (v14.02) support for Payment Data Transfer (PDT) was included.

    Using PDT with PayPal will then allow customers to 'auto-return' and they will not have the option to click away elsewhere.

    Here is how to activate PDT

    You must activate PDT and Auto Return in your PayPal account profile.
    You must also acquire a PDT identity token, which is used in all PDT communication you send to PayPal.

    Follow these steps to configure your account for PDT:
    1. Log in to your PayPal account.
    2. Click the 'Profile' subtab.
    3. Click 'Website Payment Preferences' in the 'Seller Preferences' column.
    4. Under 'Auto Return' for Website Payments, click the 'On' radio button.
    5. For the 'Return URL', enter the URL of your site (i.e. ''). This field is to satisfy the PayPal account as SellerDeck transfers all of the data for the auto return.
    6. Under 'Payment Data Transfer', click the 'On' radio button.
    7. Click 'Save'.
    8. Click 'Website Payment Preferences' in the 'Seller Preferences' column.
    9. Scroll down to the 'Payment Data Transfer' section of the page to view your PDT identity token.

    Once you have the identity token, go to 'Settings | Business Settings | Payment and Security' select 'PayPal Website Payments' and click the 'Configure Method' button and enter the identity token code into the field 'Identity Token' and click 'OK' and then in the main 'Payment and Security' screen click 'Apply' and close the screen.

    Once you have done this upload the site for the changes to take place.
