In order to start accepting PayPal payments with Braintree, you will need to:
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:
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. To complete the PayPal setup:
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.
