Create and configure a Braintree account

Create a Braintree account

To start receiving payments on your website through Braintree, you have to register a new Braintree account.

You can either create a Braintree sandbox account or an effective account. We always suggest configuring and testing the plugin with a sandbox account.

Create a Braintree sandbox account from this page. Make sure you select a sandbox account later on.

Create a Braintree production account from this page. Make sure you select a production account later on.

Select Sandbox or Production account

Enable Card and PayPal payments

Once you’ve created an account, you can connect it to your shop.

You can enable Card and PayPal separately. So, make sure you configure both if you want to use them both.

Go to the plugin settings YITH > PayPal Braintree > Credit Card and enable the option.

You can also enter a title and description as they will appear on the checkout page and choose whether to use a Sandbox or a Production account.

Enable Credit Card

Please, make sure you repeat the following steps in YITH > PayPal Braintree > PayPal.

Enable PayPal

Connect the account

Once you’ve chosen whether to connect a sandbox or production account, go to your Braintree account and click on the Settings wheel icon and click on API.
