I'm trying to create a Constant Contact Event. The Event itself is working but I'm also trying to connect a PayPal business account to the event so that we can accept the registration fees. Everything on the CC events side shows that Paypal is connected, but when I try to register myself as a test, and pay with PayPal, I get an error message that "Paypal could not be reached, try again." I contacted PayPal who stated that it has something to do with the APIs and to contact Constant Contact. I've called but I get bounced around. I see that in CC there's an integration but that connects me to Zapier which I have no clue about.
Hello @RIAPA ,
There are a few settings that you can check to make sure they are set up correctly within your PayPal account. I have listed the steps for each below for you. Please be advised that these steps are outside of Constant Contact and our scope of support.
As for your question about Zapier, they are a 3rd party company that thousands of different applications are able to connect to. For more information about Zapier and how they work you can visit their help page here.
