Upgrade from Button Manager API

Hi there,

 

I run a website that allows sellers to receive payments into their PayPal accounts. My code has the authority to create payment buttons on their behalf, requested through the NVP Permissions API, and uses IPN to verify that the transaction has been completed. I use the NVP BMCreateButton call to do this, and the notify_url parameter to provide a callback url to my website.

 

This API is deprecated, and I'd like to upgrade. Which API should I look at upgrading to?

 

The CreateButton API page alludes to Checkout as the default option. If that's suitable for this case, how should I be acquiring the merchant_id parameter from my merchants, and do they need to grant my platform special permissions?

As I read in the docs, yes, this BMCreateButton is deprecated, but dunno why still works. I just created a hosted button (subscription type) using this: GitHub - angelleye/paypal-php-library: PHP PayPal SDK Class Library for Classic APIs

It does work, but IPN is a little flaky, and PayPal has indicated they won't accept new apps using the deprecated API. Haven't had the bandwidth to properly research the upgrade path yet.
