STEP 1

When a customer selects PayPal as a payment type or a checkout method, your systems initiate the first API call to CyberSource.

STEP 2

The customer is then taken to the PayPal Express Checkout screen. When they confirm payment, your systems make a second and third API call to CyberSource to request authorization.  

STEP 3

CyberSource obtains the authorization from PayPal

STEP 4

CyberSource returns all customer status information to your systems in real time via the CyberSource API. Your systems perform an immediate sale or delayed capture. You can opt for a sale or delayed single/multiple capture.

CONCLUSION

As the customer completes the order on your website, you can receive real-time notification of successful payments and automate your internal business processes. Express Checkout via CyberSource supports full authorization reversal and/or partial refund.
