How do I set up PayPal Payment Pro?

I have the right type of PayPal account.

However, I have no idea what to enter for the API username, password, and signature, nor where to find this information.

Thank you.

Hello Geo,

This is from

You’ll need to create an API username for PayPal that’s different from your shopping cart’s username.

Follow these steps:
1. Log in to your PayPal Business account.
2. Click the My Account tab.
3. Click the Profile tab. If you haven’t already done so, you need to verify your account before requesting API credentials.
4. Click Request API credentials under Account information.
5. Click Set up PayPal API credentials and permissions under Option 1.
6. Click Request API Credentials.
7. Click Request API signature.
8. Click Agree and Submit.
9. Copy and paste the API username, password, and signature into your Event Espresso payment gateway settings.

I could not provide a link, because Paypal requires you to log in to access this information.

Does Payment Pro required IPN to be turned on? And if so, is the correct IPN url the transactions page in EE? Does the url need to be http:// or https:// ?

Hi Greg,

The PayPal Pro gateway uses the API response to verify payments, so that should suffice. Please let us know if you run into any difficulties with getting the PayPal Pro gateway set up.
