How do I configure PayPal?

  • August 26, 2015

In order to configure your PayPal plugin, navigate to Settings -> Plugins -> Payment Processors

Click PayPal in the drop-down.

There are various settings to configure, as you can see, and each has a description.

 If you are utilizing PayPal, it is recommended to mark "Yes" next to "In Signup" so that your clients can pay with PayPal during the signup and payment process.

If you want to issue refunds through PayPal, you will need to follow the instructions in this article: How do I enable PayPal refunds?

There is no such thing as Website preferences under Selling tools no more. Maybe they changed it...

That is old, and no longer needs to be done.

I've removed that part from this now.

Where do you set the callback url? The IPN area or the Auto Return area or both of

You don't need to worry about setting the callback URL. We send this in the request we send to PayPal.
