PayPal can deliver reports to a dedicated SFTP server on our reporting endpoints which you can access via SFTP either through a client or programmatically. You will need to contact customer support/business Support or your account manager to get enabled but this guide will help you with getting started once enabled.
Full downloadable guide available HERE
The SFTP access endpoint is reports.paypal.com and can be accessed through port 22 when using FTP.
SFTP Password Reset
NOTE: The password should take affect within 15-30 minutes.
this has not helped me. I did as you suggest. I have my user created. I cannot load the reports.paypal.com page. Why should we be jumping through all these hoops JUST to get a settlement report?? ridiculous.
NOT AVAILABLE OUTSIDE USA, for example, to Canadian registered companies. (If registered in USA, but accessing from out-of-country, it should work)
Please make this information available elsewhere in your documentation. I searched and attempted for a couple of hours over different days to activate SFTP access. I only found out by finally calling PayPal customer service and waiting on hold 10 minutes while the rep looked up this little-known fact. Very frustrating experience.
And please make it available outside USA!
The API docs indicate SFTP user setup is required and shows steps to enable it, but, the UI and the docs are not aligned - I have a business account and the steps indicate an Update step to enable/create/allow SFTP user, but, there is no feature in the UI.
My account/business is US-based, which seems to be a requirement, but, docs != reality. 😞
