Connecting PayPal as a payment method

PayPal is a reliable and convenient payment service that helps to easily accept and process payments in your online store. PayPal is available in over 200 countries worldwide. If your country is not on the list yet, you can connect another payment service to receive payments.

Important: Payment methods are available on Pro and Trial websites.
In order to connect PayPal to your Weblium, follow these instructions:

Getting client ID and secret key

Open and click on the 'Log into Dashboard' button in the upper right corner;

Move to the 'Sandbox Accounts' section and click on the 'Create Account' button to create a developer account;

Move to the 'My Apps and Credentials' section and и click on the 'Create App' button;

Create a name for your PayPal app, select the developer account you created earlier and click on the 'Create App' button;

Once the app has been created, you will be redirected to a different page, where you'll be able to get a test client ID and secret key credentials;

In order to get live client ID and secret key credentials, move back to the 'My Apps & Credentials' section, select the 'Live mode' and then click on the name of your app, in order to be redirected to the page with the live credentials;

Activating PayPal in your site settings on Weblium

Open your site settings and move to the 'Payment methods' section;

Locate PayPal on the list of available payment methods;

Click on the 'Connect' button beside the PayPal logo and description text;

In order to connect PayPal in test mode, first activate the test mode via the switcher (1), then transfer the test client ID (2) and secret key (3) to the relevant fields. Copy the same credentials to the live mode fields (4 and 5) in the 'Connection' section;

In order to connect PayPal in live mode, transfer the client ID (4) and secret key (5) credentials to the relevant fields in the 'Connection' section. The test mode switcher (1) must be turned off;

Add a link to the page that will be shown to users in case of a successful payment (6) and another link that will redirect to a page in case the payment fails (7). If you haven't created those pages yet, you can do this by following our guide about adding pages. You can also refer to this guide to learn more about creation of a 'Thank you' page: Creating a Thank You page.

Important: You should paste the links in the https:// format.

Add a title of the payment method (8 ) that will be displayed on checkout;

Click on 'Save' in the upper part of the screen, to apply the changes:

Move back to the 'Payment methods' section and turn on the PayPal switcher under the 'Connected payment methods';

Now your customers will see PayPal on their checkout page and will be able to pay for products and services using their preferred payment method.
