We are working on an improved solution for our Adaptive Payments customers in 2018. Check the MTS community page for updates.
Post Dec 1, How we will be accessible existing approved APP ID's ? will those be available under developer.paypal.com if we wish to retire or create new?
Hey, Existing Adaptive Apps will not be available through the developer.paypal.com dashboard.
If you wish to retire an app you can do so via our tech. Support team, either here or via ticket. New app creation for Adaptive will not be available Post December 1st 2017.
your collegue on twitter told me today that Adaptive Payments "due to changes in the law (adaptive payments) cannot be used passed 13.1.2018". This is very very urgent to us to understand in a very clear way this point: really, passed Jan 13td 2018 live adaptive applications will fall in a complete disruption?
I've asked many times to your support team and they always have answered that there will never be a total disruption before all live applications can safely migrate to other alternative tools/solutions. You too have talked about alternatives that will be released in 2018 for live applications but if the "cannot be used passed 12.1.2018" should be real, we have to expect a solution or alternative by Paypal before that date?
Very few days, anyway, to try, test, and implement a completely new integration for all those live applications, like us, who completely rely on adaptive payments.
Hope there will be some "tolerance" period just to let people and businesses to find alternatives.
Looking forward for an answer on this.
There is no plan to stop supporting Adaptive Payments in the near future so if you're using it today there is no issue with you using this into the future, we will not be closing AP off for existing merchants at this time. Can you please PM me the twitter post you received as I believe there is a bit of confusion on our side as to what was being asked perhaps.
this is the link of the public tweet where paypal_MTS has sentenced what I've reported above:
So, you confirm me, there are no plans to stop support or switch off adaptive payments starting from Jan 13 2018 ?
Right, I just discussed with our social guys and they've issued a correction on this.
But, I'd llike to go deeper in this since you're so kindly reactive.
I just need to understand if we have to actively start from now to find alternatives to our live integration with paypal adaptives (preapprovals + chained) or we can still consider safe and "long term" the support to live applications based on adaptive payments in the next years. In other words, is it a time limited support and soon or later we must be prepared because it will definitively be switched off or it will be can continue concentrating on developing our business instead that finding payments alternatives?
I apologize if I insist on this clarification but having all our past 5 years and our architecture completely built on those apis this is quite important for us to understand the situation.
Thanks a lot.
Apologies for the delay @filipporonco
So, you're OK to continue using this product, long term plan is ultimately to replace Adaptive Payments, but there is no plan in place to action that. So to answers question specifically, you don't need to start looking at alternatives just yet. However as we get new products out, it's always worth while reassessing your integration to ensure you have the latest and greatest that would fit your needs.
