    I have a question regarding the API credentials from PayPal.  There are 3 different options for requesting API credentials.  For the PayPal Pro integration, do I request:

    1. Pre-built payment solution

    2. PayPal Checkout SDK Integration

    3. NVP/SOAP API Integration?


    See attached screenshot for my options.  Thanks!

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention about obtaining the paypal api credentials to use with the paypal pro integration on our platform.

    We had a guide about this here x but, I see according to your screenshot and previous changes to paypal that it's quite out of date so I understand the confusion you are having.

    We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and will update that as soon as possible.

    I've taken a look at this and it should be the classic one which is  the very last one labeled " NVP/SOAP API Integration or Classic".

    If you click on them you can actually see a more detailed explanation of what each do before you actually activate them.

    This is what you need which matches the same information that our paypal pro integration is asking you for it.
