Payflow Gateway - Payflow Link Migration

If you are currently using the legacy Payflow Link HTML input tag integration and you would like to use the name-value pair integration, you will need to contact PayPal Merchant Technical Support to request your account to be upgraded to the new version of Payflow.

Before you request an upgrade, it is important that you understand the differences between the Payflow Link legacy parameters and the equivalent Payflow parameters. Once you upgrade your account to the new version, your old legacy integration will still work. However, to take advantage of the new features we recommend that you update your Payflow Link integration and use equivalent Payflow Gateway parameters instead of the legacy Payflow Link HTML input tags.

The legacy Payflow Link integration is now deprecated. It is recommended that you upgrade the version of your Payflow Link account which allows you to perform a broader set of functions. This upgrade allows you to switch from using the legacy Payflow Link HTML input tag parameters to using Payflow parameters. The table below lists legacy Payflow Link parameters and their Payflow equivalents.
