Membership plus Support Paypal Payments Pro

One of my client's website is currently running Membership plus plug in with standard Paypal, they have been told by their accounting department that in order to reduce paperwork, they need to upgrade to Paypal payments pro. I've read that Membership only supports the standard level of PayPal. What can be done, ie custom programming, etc. to get this plug in to work with Paypal Payments Pro?

    Hi @brascomarketing,

    Yes, Membership only uses the standard PayPal API. Custom coding this would require creating a new gateway that uses their Pro API. A developer could start with the existing PayPal express gateway to have a general structure, but most of the gateway would need to be rewritten. The basic PayPal gateway uses redirects to send users to PayPal and have them return.

    Implementing the Pro is a bit more advanced. You'd need new methods to authenticate the site with the PayPal API username & password. You'll also need to handle IPNs and take the appropriate actions.

    Overall, a good bit of custom development here. We don't undertake custom development at WPMU DEV, but if you need to hire a developer, you're welcome to post a listing on WPMU Jobs:

    Best regards,
