Adaptive Payments release notes

Important: Adaptive Payments is now a limited release product. It is restricted to select partners for approved use cases and should not be used for new integrations without guidance from PayPal.

You can still ue earlier versions of the Adaptive Payments API. However, PayPal recommends that you use the latest version whenever possible. Unless specifically specified, API operations default to the latest version.

These release notes contain information about each release. For full documentation and product information, see the Adaptive Payments API.
