Here is how you get it... 

  1. Log into your PayPal account 
  2. Scroll down to "NVP/SOAP API-integration"

  3. Make sure the box is checked for API signature, select Agree and Submit

  4. You are going to need to copy the API Username, password, and signature


Once that's done, go back to your Simplero account and setup PayPal in your Payment Processors. 

  1. Select Settings from your Simplero Dashboard
  2. Select the Payment Processors tab
  3. Click the Add a new payment processor button on the top right corner

  4. Scroll to the PayPal box and click the Add PayPal button

  5. Scroll down to the Credentials section and paste in the API signature and password 

  6. Complete the rest of the fields on this screen and click the Create payment processor button to save
