How do I setup the PayPal payments module?

To enable PayPal payments to be taken on your store, the PayPal module must first be setup. To do this do the following:-

  1. First tap or click  Ecommerce from the menu;
  2. Then tap or click Payment Options;
  3. Then tap or click PayPal;
  4. Now complete the displayed fields:-
    • Payment option status - Set this to Enabled so that PayPal payments can be taken or Disabled to turn PayPal payments off;
    • Live or Sandbox mode - This should be set to Live unless you are testing in which case select Sandbox;
    • Paypal Business ID - This is your PayPal registered e-mail address;
    • Paypal PDT Token - This is the generated PDT Token (sometimes called 'Your identity token') in your PayPal business account;
    • Availability - You can allow PayPal payments Worldwide or only in certain regions, like Europe.
  5. Finally tap or click Save Changes.


If a customer places an order using this payment option their order will be set as Payment received - preparing for dispatch.
