Update:


CLARIFICATION ? The previous notification related to this bulletin indicated that our records showed that you were using one of the impacted SDKs. This is not the case. This change is applicable to only a small number of merchants, and PayPal will be contacting those merchants directly over the coming days.

Initial Notification:


At PayPal, one of our top priorities is to ensure our customers, and yours, have a safe and secure experience when making purchases or moving money online or on a mobile device. In our commitment to enhancing the highest level of security to protect customer and transactional data, we?ll discontinue the use of PayPal?s Mobile SDK and PayPal payments through Braintree JS SDK version 2 on or after December 7, 2020.

What do I need to do?

To avoid a discontinuation of service, we recommend one of the following integration options:

Option 1: Integrate directly with v2/Orders API

This option is a web-based checkout experience that must be integrated with an API. For more information on how to integrate through this API, refer to these references:

Option 2: Integrate with PayPal JavaScript SDK

With this web-based option, transactions are redirected to PayPal or the Venmo mobile app through a button added to your website.

Here are some developer resource guides:

Option 3: Upgrade from Braintree JS SDK version 2 to JS SDK version 3 in support of PayPal payments.

If you need additional support, we encourage you to contact your web-hosting company, e-commerce software provider, in-house web programmer, or system administrator. You can also contact your PayPal customer success manager or technical account manager for further assistance.

Thank you for using PayPal and your support in providing the most secure payment experience for our shared global customers.
