The PayPal API lets developers easily leverage its payment platform in apps, mobile and mashups. The Apigee PayPal console interacts with the PayPal sandbox environment to let you get up and running without needing to transact payments.
We've made getting started on the API a single-click task by pre-populating custom tokens and sample values for all request parameters, but when you are ready to get your hands dirty, here's a few things to get you going:
- The Apigee console supports the PayPal API's custom token authentication scheme. The PayPal API uses multiple tokens, so we let you specify them as a custom token so it is easy to stay authenticated--you only need to authenticate once for the entire session.
- You can easily configure the request parameters by using the Apigee parameters pop-up. This is designed to support simple experimentation to figure out what you'll need for your apps and integrations.
Let us know your feedback and check out our other consoles for the Twitter, Facebook, and SimpleGeo APIs. And if you're hanging out at the Innovate conference, ping us on Twitter! We'll be hanging out at the hackathon.
