PayPal real money purchases on Android / iOS

I've been trying to implement in-app purchases for PlayFab in my Android game, and I'm stumped, since the documentation doesn't say anything, there are no tutorials and everything is extremely vague. What is a return link? How do I open the paypal website for the player to pay for the purchase? How do I then confirm the purchase? None of this has been explained in the docs, and I'm becoming increasingly frustrated.

If possible, I could really use an explanation or some tutorial about this. Thanks!

Well first, unless you have already worked out an exception from Google, you don't use PayPal on an Android device - you use their marketplace to make the purchase, and our receipt validation to securely deliver the items to the player (https://blog.playfab.com/blog/show-me-money-receipt-validation-ios-and-android/).

For platforms where you can use PayPal, there's a complete tutorial on the various non-receipt validation processes here: https://api.playfab.com/docs/tutorials/landing-commerce/non-receipt-payment-processing

Well I actually managed to integrate PayPal purchases on Android. They work flawlessly, actually. I just couldn't get Google IAP working, so I settled for PayPal. Thanks, anyway!
