Setting Up A PayPal Account
To configure your PayPal account with your website head to Settings > Checkout/Payments and select "PayPal".
There are two different options listed below for accepting payments through PayPal.
You can connect with a standard PayPal account, however using this option is not recommended and will redirect your customers away from your shop when they Checkout with PayPal.
You can setup a PayPal Business Account here.
We recommend you use a PayPal Business account so that you can use PayPal Express. This allows customers to checkout using the “Checkout with PayPal” button still; however, customers won’t leave your site to checkout.
To activate your PayPal Business account:
- Go to PayPal Express and click “Activate”.
- You will be redirected to PayPal.
- Login to your business account and follow the steps to connect your website with PayPal Express.
To activate a standard PayPal account simply enter the email address connected with your normal PayPal account and press save.
