How to Integrate PayPal Express Checkout Payment Processing

This payment processing app allows buyers to pay you directly and permits one time payments only. This app is considered hand-off processing because the buyer will be transferred to the vendors website to make the actual payment. After the payment is made the buyer will be transferred back to Content Shelf for confirmation.

To Integrate the PayPal Express Checkout Payment Processing App click Sell (1) then choose the Payment Processing Apps (2) area.

Premium Plus account holders will need to choose the store they want to manage and click the Pencil (Edit) Icon.

Under the PayPal Checkout drop down choose PayPal Express Checkout (3).

The following fields will need to be populated within information from your PayPal Dashboard as outlined below.

  • API Username
  • API Password
  • API Signature

Upon completion of your adjustments click the Save Changes (4) button at the bottom of this area.
