Step 1:   Add Your Domain To CF Pro Tools DOMAINS TAB

Your first step will be to add your domain to the CFPT Domains Tab.

Here's a guide on how to do that:

Step 2:  Create Your ORDER Page & On-Page Configuration

You will need an ORDER TYPE page installed in your funnel on ClickFunnels in order for this add-on to work.

This add-on will work with a one or two step order style setup.  

Here's a quick tutorial on how to create funnel pages using ClickFunnels:

For your 2-Step Order Element Pages, you do not need to add any additional on-page configuration.    Generate script, add to Footer, and you are good to go.

For your 1-Step Order Page Configurations, you WILL need to follow these directions:

  • DO NOT use a regular Credit Card element

  • Add a Headline Element in place of the CC element

  • Give the Headline Element a CSS TITLE:  cfpt-payment-placeholder

That is all for your on-page setup of the PayPal Plus Add-on!!

Step 3:  Create Your Product Pairs in the PRODUCTS TAB

Please follow these video directions for setting up your PRODUCTS:

Please Note:   For issues with setup of products or PayPal v2, please check with ClickFunnels Support as this falls within their scope of support.

IMPORTANT NOTE:   Stripe Products should be setup using the STRIPE Integration in ClickFunnels.    

PayPal Products should be setup using the PayPal v2 Integration in ClickFunnels.

EVEN MORE IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are stuck with PayPal v3 on ClickFunnels, you will need to reach out to ClickFunnels Support to request a reversion to PayPal v2.   They can do this by request.

Step 4:  Create Your Add-on Script

For most add-on installations of the PAYPAL PLUS script, you can simply click the CREATE NEW button:

Please note:  You CANNOT use this script over and over for other order pages without having to create a new and unique script.

For each order step where you wish to use PayPal Plus, please generate a new and unique PayPal Plus script from CF Pro Tools.

... now do a keyword search for PayPal Plus

Once you have located the PAYPAL PLUS script, click the thumbnail image and create the add-on per the installation instructions.

You will need to name your script.   We recommend a naming convention like this:

It's best to name it with the name of the add-on AND in parentheses, make sure to name which funnel it belongs to so you can easily identify later.

One of the first settings you'll set is whether or not you want your add-on to work in SANDBOX (testing environment), or PRODUCTION (that's live) mode.

Please note, the selection you choose above should be the SAME as what you have setup in ClickFunnels.   

So if you have your PayPal v2 credentials setup in CF as LIVE, then this selection here should be in PRODUCTION.

The selections you choose here are at your discretion of how you want your PayPal buttons to look.

The following "text" area is optional but can be filled out if you want to say anything specific on your PayPal Form Area:

Adding in the PRODUCT ID's is not an optional area (pictured above)....

Each product you have in your products tab should have a pair.   So if you have 2 products created with Stripe, you should have 2 products created with PayPal, and their product ID's should be paired up as a PRODUCT GROUP.

If you have 2 full price Stripe Products, and are using PROMO CODE, then you will have 2 DISCOUNTED products for a total of 4 products.

This means you will have 4 Stripe Products, 4 PayPal Products, and 4 total PRODUCT Groups that need to be paired up in the configuration.

Please generate new and unique PayPal Plus Scripts for each Order Page you create where you wish to utilize PayPal Plus.

Once you have completed this area, click the red button below to create your add-on script.

Step 5:  Install Your Add-on Script

You can now copy your newly generated script out by clicking the blue button where your script is located.

The button says, "COPY CODE", this will copy the script to your virtual clipboard.

You are now ready to paste the script into your FOOTER TRACKING CODE AREA.

Please navigate to your funnel step where you wish to use PAYPAL PLUS.


Now click the FOOTER CODE TAB, and paste your code in:

You do not need an ORDER SUMMARY add-on when using PayPal Plus unless needed for other-add-ons (e.g: promo code pro)

Now SAVE your page, you are ready to preview and test your new add-on!
