How can I enable notifications for recurring PayPal payments?

First of all, make sure your webhook is set up to receive notifications. You can receive the recurringDetailReference in the AUTHORISATION and the RECURRING_CONTRACT notifications. 


For the AUTHORISATION notification, you must:

  1. From the Customer Area, open your company-level account.
  2. Browse to Developers > Additional data > Payment and enable Recurring details.
  3. Once this is done, in the AUTHORISATION notification, within the additionalData, you will receive the shopperReference and recurringDetailReference:

2   "additionalData": {

3      "recurring.shopperReference": "testshopper",

4      "recurring.recurringDetailReference": "1111111111111111"

5   }


For the RECURRING_CONTRACT notification, you will need to enable the non-default event code, as explained here.
