Paypal API credentials

3. Under Custom checkout experience section, click on Manage API credentials link under NVP/SOAP API integration (Classic) option:

Manage API credentials

If you haven’t set it up before, you will be asked the following:

Request API signature

Choose Request API signature and click the Agree and Submit button.

On the next page, copy the API Username, Password, and Signature generated. Click the Done button if you’re done.

You will have to remove existing credentials if you want to generate a new one. We, however, do not recommend removing this if you have existing integrations that use the credentials.

We highly recommend that you keep your API credentials safe for future reference.
