Discover the optimal path that suits your business needs among three distinct approaches.
Working with Developers Team
For a customized integration between complex systems like Salesforce and PayPal, it’s best to partner with experienced developers. Freelancers may lack the depth of expertise required. You need a team that deeply understands both platforms and has repeatedly built similar integrations.
At Routine Automation, our developers have 5+ years of experience specializing in custom Salesforce projects and integrations. We’ve seamlessly connected Salesforce to countless third-party systems for 250+ projects. Through close collaboration, we handle all the intricate technical details and ensure a smooth linking process tailored to how you specifically use Salesforce and PayPal.

Using the PayPal AppExchange App
The PayPal AppExchange app connects PayPal and Salesforce in just a few clicks, without IT help required.
Key steps include:
The app automatically synchronizes transaction data between the two systems. It also enables directly creating Salesforce records from PayPal events for streamlined order management.
Building a Custom Integration
For advanced customization, developers can build custom APIs leveraging PayPal APIs like Instant Payment Notification (IPN) and Transaction Search to sync payment data. This involves:
The definition is which data points to extract from PayPal and corresponding Salesforce object fields.
Building secure API integrations between PayPal and Salesforce to transfer transaction data on a recurring schedule.
Developing and testing
Iteration on integration logic until transactions are accurately captured in Salesforce.
Deploying and monitoring
Launch the integration and monitor performance using logging and analytics.
Leveraging years of integration experience, our team maps all necessary PayPal data points to their optimal corresponding fields in Salesforce. We work collaboratively so you gain full visibility into customer purchases.
Best Practices for Ongoing Management
Following best practices will ensure your PayPal-Salesforce integration continues to meet business needs over time:
To maximize adoption across your sales and service teams, be sure to provide training on accessing key customer payment data from within Salesforce once integrated. Show reps how to quickly view transaction history, identify refund eligibility, verify deliveries, and understand dispute details without switching between applications. The more visibility they have from a single UI, the greater the productivity.
Through best practice recommendations, our team structures an intelligent architecture between PayPal and Salesforce leveraging real-time sync. We enable your business to derive maximum value from combined customer insights.
