Monday Minutes: PayPal System Preferences

Coming in our next Koha release this Fall 2021, the system preferences for PayPal will be going away. Instead, a PayPal plugin will be used for libraries to allow their patrons to pay fines through the OPAC. Jessie and Kelly show the plugin and talk about our upcoming upgrade.
