PayPal Standard Additional Gateway Settings
  • Users Can Select Multiple Products – set to “Yes” if you want users to be able to select multiple products.
  • Show Total Price on the Form – select “Yes” if you want to show the total amount on the form.
  • Sandbox Mode – the PayPal Sandbox is a self-contained, virtual testing environment that mimics the live PayPal production environment. It provides a shielded space where you can initiate and watch your application process the requests you make to the PayPal APIs without touching any live PayPal accounts.
  • Authorization Only – enable this option if you want to collect orders and charge customers at a later date. See “How to Enable Payment Authorization” to learn more.
  • Require Shipment Address – if you’ll be shipping a product to the user or need an address for some other purpose, select “Yes”.
