How can I use a PayPal integration?

The data produced by commerce platforms, such as PayPal, offers a valuable and unique source of real-time information. This data can be used to power a wide variety of use cases, such as cash flow forecasting and business financial management dashboards, as well as revenue-based and alternative lending. Commerce data like PayPal can also be used to build features that help small businesses get paid faster, such as instant payouts.

How does a PayPal integration work?

We provide consented access to the data found in your business customers’ PayPal account via the official Application Programming Interface (API). Your customers control this access at all times and we never see their login credentials.

The integration maps real-time and immutable merchant data from the PayPal platform to Codat’s standardised commerce data model and makes it available via our universal, developer-friendly API and Portal.

What data types are available?

Codat’s PayPal integration supports a wide range of data types including Company Info, Customers, and Payments. Clients can use these data types to extract key metrics such as Gross Sales Revenue, Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR), Churn Rates and much more. To gain a full understanding of exactly which data sets are available, please visit our docs.
