How To Set Up PayPal API Key for Payment Required Features

PayPal is one of the world’s largest Internet payment companies. The company operates as a payment processor for online vendors, auction sites and other commercial users, for which it charges a fee.

FIRST, If you don’t have a Paypal account, you need to create one. Please go to paypal.com and sign up for free.

Your Paypal account must be “premium” or “business”.

Here is what you need to set up Paypal in your mobile app:
  • Paypal API username
  • Paypal API password
  • Paypal signature
The process is simple but needs some requirements. First, open paypal.com and log in.

Under your name, make sure your status reads: Verified. If your account isn’t verified, Paypal must verify it to start accepting PayPal gateways payments.
