REST server steps

For Express Checkout server-side REST integrations, use the REST Payments API to initiate a payment from your server, launch a buyer into the Express Checkout flow, and execute the payment on your server.

Note: PayPal encourages all new integrations to use PayPal's REST API, where all new features will be added. For existing legacy integrations that use the NVP/SOAP APIs, see NVP/SOAP server steps.
