Pulling Customers Phone Number from PayPal into The Checkout

You can set up your PayPal account's preferences to require the phone number to be supplied when customers are making a purchase. In your PayPal account, click on Profile, then Website Payment Preferences, then enable the option under Contact telephone number.

Because we find that customers who provide a phone number for physical purchases are less likely to be fraudulent and because it makes it easier to provide good customer service we generally require the phone number in the GTP checkout unless you have specific reasons for not requiring it.

Please feel free to call the GTP Web Design Team if you would like to talk further about our Australian turnkey e-commerce web site solutions and integration with PayPal for your current shopping cart web site.
