Authorising a payment

If the payment is authorised on PayPal, the authResult URL parameter Adyen returns is authResult=PENDING. Send us a payment authorisation request to complete the PayPal Express Checkout transaction. Provide authentication credentials. You configure these details in the library you use for server-to-server communication with the Adyen payments platform. The username is automatically retrieved when you initiate a payment and should to match the username value you specify when you authenticate to send your authorise API call.

A predefined username is ws@Company.[YourCompanyAccount]. You set the corresponding password in the Customer Area > Account > Users. The payment request authorise API call you make to Adyen always should include the payment token you receive from us in the payment.token HTTP POST return field as a key/value pair entry in the additionalData container object. Also, the paypal_ecs value that you passed in the brandCode field with the initial HTTP POST message while initiating the payment.
