In order to start accepting PayPal with Braintree, you’ll need to:
1. Sign up for a PayPal Business Account
2. Verify your PayPal account
In order to avoid withdrawal limits or the inability to process transactions, you will need to verify specific information, like your bank account.
3. Enter your PayPal credentials in the Braintree Control Panel
You must enter your PayPal Business Account credentials in the Braintree Control Panel to enable PayPal. You can only link one PayPal account to your Braintree gateway.
Braintree will send you an email to confirm that you have successfully logged into PayPal in your Braintree Control Panel and let you know if there are any next steps. Once you’ve been approved to process PayPal transactions, you will be notified via email. The approval process typically takes 1-2 business days.
If you do not see the option to enter in PayPal account credentials and your account was recently approved, please check back later. It can take a few business days for your account to be fully set up and for this option to become available in the Control Panel. Contact the Braintree Support team for more information.
