How to Set up PayPal Payments Pro

This is payment option allows you to process credit card payments directly on your site.  To add PayPal Payments Pro, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to www.paypal.com/api and log in to your PayPal account.
  2. On the screen that follows, scroll to find the section called "NVP/SOP API Integration." There, click the "Request API credentials" or "Manage API credentials" link (whichever appears for you).
  3. On the page that follows, select the "Request API signature" option (NOT API certificate), then click "Agree and Submit" to generate/show the API signature.
  4. The image below shows the credentials page with an example set of signature credentials. (You may have to click "Show" for each element to reveal the credentials.)
  5. Open a new tab or page, then navigate to the Payment Methods section of the RevolutionParts Control Panel.
  6. The Payment Methods section can be found under "Cart Settings > Payments, Shipping & Discounts > Payment Methods."  There, click on the drop-down menu that says, "Please choose your payment solution..." and select PayPal Payments Pro.  Click "Activate."
  7. Copy and paste the API credentials from PayPal into your RevolutionParts Control Panel
  8. TIP: On this step we recommend using the following keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste your API Credentials. The API Signature in step 6 has more characters than what appears in the field so this method is best.
    • Select All – Ctrl + A
    • Copy – Ctrl + C
    • Paste – Ctrl + V

  9. Click "Save and Activate"

Refunding Payments

If you're NOT using PayPal Payments Pro for your credit card processor, it is recommended that you add your API credentials (similar to Pro) for PayPal Express Checkout. This will allow you to refund payments directly from the order page within the RevolutionParts admin panel opposed to having to go to PayPal. If you ARE using PayPal Payments Pro, there's no need to enter credentials for Express Checkout, since it will use your Pro credentials.  To do this follow the first to steps in your Pro setup and continue with these steps:

  1. Click “Manage Payment Options”
  2. Select “PayPal Express Checkout”
  3. Click “Additional Settings”
  4. Click to retrieve API credentials
  5. Save changes

What's the difference between PayPal Payments Pro and PayPal Express Checkout?

PayPal Payments Pro is a credit card processor that allows buyers to enter their credit card information on your website. Buyers never know that the processor is PayPal; they just see blank credit card fields.

PayPal Express Checkout is what consumers typically mean when they think "PayPal." It's the service that allows buyers to log into their PayPal accounts and use their account balance to make a purchase, or check out as a guest using a credit or debit card.

 

To obtain your PayPal API credentials;

  1. Open up a new window or tab and navigate to www.paypal.com/api to log in to your PayPal account.
  2. On the page that follows, scroll to find the section called "NVP/SOP API Integration." There, click the "Request API credentials" or "Manage API credentials" link (whichever appears for you).
  3. On the page that follows, select the "Request API signature" option (NOT API certificate), then click the big "Agree and Submit" button to generate/show the API signature.
  4. The image below shows the credentials page with an example set of signature credentials. (You may have to click "Show" for each element to reveal the credentials.)

Back in the RevolutionParts Control Panel, you'll be prompted to fill out a series of fields, including the email address associated with your PayPal account, the API username, password, and signature (which are different than the regular account credentials).
