    Canadian Paypal Pro setup

    Asked by jredekopp on July 17, 2013 at 12:38 PM

    I am from Canada...when I follow your steps I get an API credential error. InPaypal I am given two options for Setting up API permissions and credentials:

     

    Option 1 - Grant API permissions to a third party to use certain PayPal APIs on your behalf.

     

    Choose this option if:

    You are using a pre-integrated shopping cart, hosted by a third party Your website is hosted and managed by a third-party service provider

    OR

     

    Option 2 - Request API credentials to create your own API username and password.

     

    This option applies to:

    Custom websites and online stores Pre-integrated shopping carts running on your own server

     

    Option 2 does not work as I get an API credential error and thus Option 1 is the logical choice considering htis is a 3rd party solution. However for Option 1 it asks me for the 3rd party username to grant acess! What do I enter here?

     

    Really need an answer asap!

    Hi,

    You would need the Option 2 "View API Signature". 

    Can you please send us a screenshot of the said error? We can easily identify and give you the solution if we'd know it.

    Thanks

    Thank you! A different interface. Can you please try to access this URL: https://www.paypal.com/ca/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_profile-api-signature.

    See if you will be landed to the same page for API Signature.

    1. Profile > Selling Tools: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/customerprofile/summary.view

    2. API Access > Update: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/customerprofileweb?cmd=_profile-api-access

    3. API Access Page > API Signature: https://www.paypal.com/ca/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_profile-api-signature

     

    Thanks
