|Invisible Gold can use PayPal as a payment option for clients to pay using their PayPal account or a credit card. You will need to generate a Client ID to connect your site to your PayPal account. |
|First log into your PayPal account|
First you need to log into your PayPal account that will receive payments. Go to PayPal.com.
|Follow this link to create an "App"|
PayPal wants us to give the connection to your website a name. You can click on this link as a shortcut to the page where you create it. https://developer.paypal.com/developer/applications/create?env=live
Note: If the link doesn't work, you can go the long way. First click "Proceed to Account Overview" to get to your main PayPal page. Next, click Developer in the top right corner. Then click Develop on the bottom left. And finally click "Get Started". On this page, you can click "Live" on the top of the page and then Create App.
|Give your "App" a name and click "Create App"|
The name is just for your own needs. They want it to be unique so something like your business name with website at the end. Ex: "Invisible Gold Website" Click Create App and then copy the generated "Client ID" into the PayPal Client ID field your website's settings page.
If you ever need to get back to the credentials page, it's under My Apps And Credentials on the top left of the PayPal Developer page. Here is a direct link: https://developer.paypal.com/developer/applications
