How to pay with PayPal on EU & US Footsites

In this article, we will show you how to pay with PayPal during EU & US Footsites releases.


Please note that PayPal on Footsites is completely different functionality to PayPal on other modules. Therefore it is important you read this article in detail so you understand how to properly utilize this feature

The first thing you need is the GaneshBot Chrome Extension in order to successfully pay with PayPal. Once installed, just follow these simple steps:

  1. When creating your tasks,
    1. Using CLI: input PAYPAL in the MODE field/column and it will use PayPal for the checkout.
    2. Using GUI: simply select "PayPal Account" in the Mode drop-down menu when creating your tasks.
  2. If you want GaneshBot to use a specific card on your PayPal account, please input the last 4 digits of your card in a DISCOUNT CODE field/column. GaneshBot will try to find this card to pay with, and if it fails, it will just use the default payment method on your account.
  3. If you want GaneshBot to use a different proxy for the PayPal session,
    1. Using CLI: You can set a proxy in the settings. Select "Configure settings", and then "Add PayPal proxy". You can then paste your proxy and hit enter. If you leave it blank, all PayPal related requests will be performed on localhost.
    2. Using GUI: Go to the settings tab and add your proxy under the "PayPal Proxy" field. If you leave it blank, all PayPal related requests will be performed on localhost.
  4. When you start your tasks, it will send you a webhook, requesting you to login to your PayPal account. Cookies are then pulled and sent back to the bot. Ideally, you want to do this a few minutes before the realease starts (or even earlier if we say so).


  5. From now on, the bot will maintain your PayPal session and pay with it for every tasks with PayPal mode.
  6. The session will be shared with all instances. If you open 4 instances and start tasks, it will send you 4 webhooks, however you will only have to login using one, and then the session will be shared with the other instances.
