In order to start accepting PayPal payments with Braintree, you will need to:

  • Have a compatible Braintree account.
  • Have a free, verified PayPal Business Account.
  • Enter your PayPal credentials in the Braintree Control Panel.

1. Sign up for a PayPal Business Account

In order to use PayPal with Braintree, you will need a PayPal Business Account. You can either sign up for a new PayPal account or upgrade an existing PayPal account:

  1. Log into your PayPal account.
  2. Navigate to the Settings page.
  3. Click "Upgrade to a Business Account".
  4. Enter your business information and follow the remaining prompts.

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.

If you navigate to your profile in the PayPal console, you should see prompts that will help you complete the verification. If you are having trouble, contact PayPal support.

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. To complete the PayPal setup:

  1. Log into the Braintree Control Panel.
  2. Click on the gear icon in the top right corner.
  3. Click "Processing" from the drop-down menu.
  4. Scroll to the Payment Methods section.
  5. Next to PayPal, click toggle to access the Accept PayPal options page.
  6. Click the" Log In with PayPal" button.
  7. Enter your PayPal login credentials and click "Log In".
  8. Enter the URLs to your website's Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions in the fields provided.
  9. Click the Submit button.

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 a few business days.

Once you have successfully linked your PayPal Business Account to your Braintree Control Panel, you may notice that a REST API app has been created in your PayPal Apps Control Panel. This app allows Braintree to interact with the PayPal API on your behalf; without it, you will be unable to process PayPal transactions through your Braintree account. It is recommended that you do not delete the REST API app at any time.


  • 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.
