2.2. Tick on Enable Paypal Standard.
2.3. Enter Title and Description. This will show on customer checkout page.
2.4. Enter your PayPal email address in the PayPal Email field, which is the most important thing to configure before taking payments. Must match the same email address on your PayPal Business account.
3. PayPal Advanced Options
3.1. Under Advanced Options, complete fields as needed.
3.2. Tick the box for Enable PayPal Sandbox if you wish to test the checkout process during your online store’s development. With sandbox enabled, no payment/money is taken. To use Sandbox mode, you need a separate sandbox account via PayPal Sandbox.
3.3. Debug log may also be turned on, which can be useful if you have someone to setup the store or testing your online store issue.
3.4. IPN Email Notifications (optional). Instant Payment Notifications (IPN) are sent from PayPal when you receive a payment, issue a refund or a chargeback or cancellation.
3.5. Enter an email address for Receiver Mail if this address is different than the PayPal email address you entered above in step 2.4.
3.7. Enter an Invoice Prefix (useful if you have multiple stores).
3.8. There are two shipping options:
- Send shipping details to PayPal. You can opt to have Online Store send shipping details to PayPal to create shipping labels instead of billing.
- Address override option. PayPal verifies addresses therefore this setting can cause errors. We recommend keeping it disabled, but it can be useful in preventing address information from being changed.
3.9. Payment Action lets you choose to Capture funds immediately or only Authorize*.
4. PayPal API Credentials
4.1. There are three fields to paste API information into (Only use this if you are offering refund payment through PayPal):
- API Username
- API Password
- API Signature
4.2. If you enabled Sandbox mode in step 3.2, paste the sandbox API information into the three sandbox fields.
