Card Payment


Having climbed all the paypal documentation, I still could not find how to integrate payment through a card. Payment through a card can be realized through smart buttons, but that’s not it. Can you suggest or give a link to the documentation, which described how to implement payment via card?

Hi @xelloy,


Thank you for contacting PayPal community.


We completely understand the trouble and apologize for any inconvenience.

Unfortunately, use of the PayPal REST /payments APIs to accept direct credit card payments is restricted in LIVE production. 

If you would like to use a direct credit card service in your app, you may want to look into Braintree Direct

Guide link for reference.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.
