Connect With PayPal Via API

  1. In LTV Numbers’ side navigation bar, go to the "Settings" tab

  2. Click "Connect With PayPal" and follow the steps below to get the Client ID and Secret

  3. In a separate browser tab or window, log into the PayPal Developer Applications Dashboard

  4. Click "Apps & Credentials"

  5. Click "Live" to toggle into Live mode

  6. In the "REST API apps" section, click the "Create App" button

  7. Enter "LTV Numbers" as the app name and click the "Create App" button

  8. In the "Live App Settings" section, check all boxes under "App feature options" and click Save. This ensures the integration will have access to the information needed to load account data.

    • Click "Continue" if you see a confirmation popup

  9. Copy and paste the Client ID and Secret from the Live API Credentials at the top of the app page into LTV Numbers and click Connect

Limitations of PayPal

  • All PayPal payments do not have funnel information from the cart platform that PayPal is integrated with. The available information is limited to products that exist inside the PayPal account. This is why we recommend integrating directly with your cart platform and only integrate with PayPal if necessary.

    • Since funnel information for PayPal payments is lost, LTV Numbers will display PayPal payments in a generic "PayPal Payment Processor" funnel

    • For subscriptions that originate in a cart platform (such as Clickfunnels), rebill revenue will not be assigned to the original funnel in LTV Numbers but the revenue will still be processed and appear in the "PayPal Payment Processor" funnel
