When you integrate Pay Later messaging, you can also integrate your analytics platform and add events related to Pay Later messaging.

The PayPal JavaScript SDK accepts optional callback function properties.


The following table lists events that can be tracked by your analytics platform:

onRenderFunctionCallback function called immediately after each message has been successfully rendered to the DOM.
onClickFunctionCallback function called immediately after each message has been clicked.
onApplyFunctionCallback function called immediately after clicking on an apply link or button.


<!DOCTYPE html>

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

    <div class="pp-message"></div>
            amount: 500,
            placement: 'product',
            style: {
                layout: 'text',
                logo: {
                  type: 'primary',
                  position: 'top'
            onRender: () => {
            onClick: () => {
            onApply: () => {

In the previous example, you create a message object by calling the paypal.Messages function with a configuration object that includes optional properties for onRender, onClick and onApply.

The functions in this example log in the console that an event has occurred. Refer to your analytics platform's documentation on how to log when a custom event has occurred and put that code in the function body of the event hook properties of the messages configuration object.
