[ZPD-21236/ZLMC-3637] -  Paypal Express Refund/Void Feature

Administration/ Shopper Experience

  • In version 9.7.4., Refund/Void feature is added to PayPal Express and the following are the changes done to implement the PayPal Express Refund/Void feature:
    • Added Fields:

      • Paypal ClientId

      • Paypal ClientSecret
        Note: Both the fields will have text fields associated with them

  • For Order Cancellations:
    • The refund will be processed wherein payment status is ‘Captured’.
    • No refund will be processed wherein the payment status is ‘Authorized’ and the payment will be ‘Voided’.

Important Points:

  • Paypal Express implementation is only done for payments through the webstore, no implementation has been done to make payments through Paypal Express through the admin application.
  • Pending Order and Pending Payment are not considered in this release. 
  • All the scenarios where Order Total increases are not considered in this version.
  • Known Issues (PayPal Limitations)
    • While placing the order through Znode using Paypal Express, on the PayPal Sandbox, the order amount was shown with complete bifurcations which included the shipping value, taxes, discounts and the order total. 
    • This may lead to penny issues, the reason being for every value of shipping, taxes, and discount, the system will send to PayPal, PayPal API will round off the amount to 2 precisions (as PayPal just supports precisions only up to 2 decimal points) but Znode admin can specify the precisions/round off up to 6. Thus, it may lead to penny issues.
  • Thus, to overcome the same, similar to what Znode does for other payment methods, only the order total value will be sent to PayPal without any bifurcated values.
