When the PayPal Payer ID is passed to Kount, it can be linked to other orders across the Kount's network of merchants.
There are two options available:
- Submit initial RIS inquiry call (MODE=Q) to Kount with payment type as PYPL after you have received the payer ID from PayPal. The PayPal Payer ID will be input into the PTOK field.
- Submit the MODE Q call to Kount with the payment type as PYPL and leave the PTOK blank. You will need to change the Khash payment encoding to 'false' and then leave the PTOK null (‘’). If this is not done, the call attempts to hash the null value and returns a hard error. You can then submit an update call (MODE=U) and provide the token in the PTOK field. The order will not appear in the web console until you submit the update call.
Refer to the Technical Specification Guide for more information about passing payment information to Kount.
