PayPal is a popular payment gateway which allows you to collect money from your clients. Clients are not required to have a PayPal account to pay you. They can also pay with their credit/debit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) — all without having a PayPal account (you need a PayPal PRO account and M2 PayPal Addon to enable your users to pay without a PayPal account).


When PayPal Addon is activated, Payments tab will be available in MAINTENANCE - Settings

  • Activate Paypal Payments - yes or no. This will add PayPal payment menu in Users accounts Start page.
  • Paypal Client ID - Paypal client ID (provided by Paypal).
  • Secret PayPal Key - key to verify transactions (provided by PayPal).

NOTE These are not PayPal username and password, but Paypal Client ID and Secret Paypal Key. PayPal payment option won't show up for a User, if these credentials are incorrect or API fails for other reasons.

  • Default currency - default currency for payments via PayPal.
  • Default amount - amount which will be put in amount field by default.
  • Minimal amount - minimal allowed payment amount.
  • Maximum amount - maximul allowed payment amount.

Once Activate Paypal Payments is enabled in MAINTENANCE - Settings, PayPal section will appear in User settings. Enable Allow PayPal to allow this User make PayPal payments.

After enabling Allow PayPal in User settings, User will see following menu on its account startup page:
