Merchants today can use PayPal as a payment gateway, collecting credit card payments from their customers. But did you know that using Recurly.js or the Recurly Hosted Payment Pages, you can also allow your customers to checkout using PayPal?

To process PayPal payments, please contact PayPal and apply for a feature called Mark Reference Transactions - not to be confused with a similarly named feature called Recurring Transactions. This special feature does require a PayPal risk assessment, but it allows Recurly to submit recurring transactions of variable amounts without an upper transaction approval limit. Read more about this feature on our documentation site, or contact Recurly Support if you have any questions about Reference Transactions.
