This guide will show you how to configure Paypal as a payment processor. At the bottom is a video walkthrough of the process. 

You will need a business account in Paypal to use it as a payment processor. 

In order to set up your PayPal account as a payment processor in your Simplero account, you are going to need a PayPal API signature.

Here is how you get it... 

  1. Log into your PayPal account 
  2. Clicking Settings Gear Icon >> Account Settings
  3. API Access >> Update
  4. NVP/SOAP API integration (Classic) >> Manage API Credentialspaypal1.png
  5. Make sure the box is checked for API signature, select Agree and Submit

  2. Select the Payment Processors tab
  3. Click the Add a new payment processor button on the top right corner
