PayPal Reference Transactions

PayPal offers the possibility to process recurring transactions as back-end-process, which means that the advantages of our credit card Alias, ELV-account numbers and PostFinance Alias also apply for PayPal. Please note that Reference Transaction must be requested at PayPal first.

PayPal Reference Transactions are recommended for payments that are being processed in the background, as for example monthly fees for abonnements or orders from registered customers by phone. You can furthermore optimize your check out process for smartphones and tablets. The keyword herefore is „One-Click-Check-Out“.
