Gameball has created a ready-to-use template on Zapier which you can use to easily connect PayPal with Gameball. Once you complete the integration process, you will be able to reward your players with points after they complete the required action on PayPal.

Here is the Zapier template you can use to connect PayPal with Gameball:

  • Reward players through Gameball for new Paypal completed payments. Click here

Follow these steps to complete the integration process using the template:

  • Copy your Gameball API key and use it to log in on Zapier. Learn where to find your API key

  • Click Turn on Zap

  • Click View your Zaps, then choose the two apps connection

  • For the final step on Zapier, check if there are any errors and test your connection by clicking the Error Icon then Test trigger

Note: without testing the connection between the two apps, the integration process will not be completed.
