Which PayPal data can I show in the Nudge?

In order for us to create a Purchase Nudge with your PayPal data, we need, at the very minimum, the following data:

  • customer email address

If you collect this data in PayPal, we can also show the following additional information in the Nudge:

  • customer name
  • customer country + state/city (to show their location)
  • product name (this can be a product, subscription, plan, etc.)

Check in your PayPal set-up if you collect the data you want to show with your PayPal event.

Which data can I not show with PayPal?

It is not possible to get the following data via the PayPal integration:

  • product image
  • product url

This means that it is not possible to show a dynamic product image (product image that differs per product) and that it is not possible to link to the product page from the product name in the Nudge.
