PayPal Payment API Update

If you have the PayPal Payment facility on your website then you will have noted that it now has a “Please transition to the updated PayPal settings by configuring them within the “WP Accept PayPal Payment” plugin’s settings menu” message next to it.

This is because the WP PayPal Payment plugin has recently been updated and now needs to be connected via API to continue working.

This must be done by yourself but it is easy to do, if you have not already done it.

In the Dashboard go to Settings / WP PayPal Payment / PayPal PPCP (New API) tab and click on the “Get PayPal Live Credentials” blue button – see printscreen below:

With your PayPal account email and password to hand, follow the instructions to activate API access until it says “Live account is connected.”

The PayPal Payment facility should now take payments as before.
