On the PayPal Express Checkout tab, select the required Mode that will be used for sending transactions to PayPal. Initially, you will need to use Test mode before PayPal approves your account to go Live. You will need to enter your Username, Password and Signature in the fields provided, which will enable PayPal to correctly identify your account.

The Currency can be set to any ISO 4217 currency code, and defaults to GBP. The Description field may contain any text you would like to use to identify your transactions, and is only used for reference purposes.

The Transaction Type defines the way in which you wish to process your customer's credit card details. A Standard payment means that funds will be taken immediately from your customer's account. A Delayed Capture payment is one which can be Captured at a later date, either for the full amount or with multiple captures.

The complete list of options is as follows:

  • Standard Payment
  • Delayed Capture
  • Delayed Capture if Can't Ship

You should now be ready to begin processing payments using PayPal Express Checkout.
