How do I integrate/Setup PayPal Express Checkout?
« on: March 19, 2020, 03:03:31 am »
Hello,

I am already sitting here for threee hours trying to figure out by following manuals on how to setup PayPal Express Checkout.
It is very confusing.

I tried to follow this first:

http://docs.virtuemart.net/manual/shop-menu/payment-methods/paypal-express-checkout.html

and after going to the link "Connect to the PayPal Developer Website" I am not able to find "Click on Applications on the horizontal bar".
Now I am stucking.

Anyone who can help me with that?

Thank you

These are the settings that worked for my testing


Note - I had to disable (smart buttons)

The VM guide you were using is there to help with the setup of a PayPal developer account

Code: [Select]
I do not have this in my PP.You wont - it is related to using a developer test account.

This enables you to run paypal on your VM site in a sandbox mode.

If you want to do that then setup a PayPal developer account

You can then setup test accounts for business and customer testing before using against your live PayPal account.

Maybe I was not specific enough.
I do not have this in my PayPal Developer Account.
This all is very confusing and complicated.
Why do they always make it that way?

Thank you very much.
I have the Sandbox, but how do I do the Production setup?
I cannot find it in the Developer PayPal Account.

OK - I am struggling to understand now what you are aiming to achieve

Please explain clearly what you are attempting to do
Is it for a live PayPal account or a sandbox Paypal account
Is it for a production or a test site

You need a real PayPal account to use any of this in a production site.

I am trying to add PayPal Express Checkout to my current website for my customers, but all this is very confusing.

Since I am still alive, I occasionally still like to play in a sandbox to produce some sand castles to test them on site.  ;D
