Creating PayPal App to get 'Client ID' and 'Secret Key'

  • Go to AliDropshipSettings → Payments to enable PayPal as your payment gateway.

  • Select Rest API from the Integration method dropdown menu.

Click that link:

  • Copy your Live API credentials and paste them into your WP admin area. Click the Save Changes button.

  • Disable 'demo mode' when you are ready to accept payments in Live mode.

PayPal Smart Buttons

Activating the option PayPal smart Buttons will allow your clients to pay with their credit cards even if they don't have a PayPal account.

Note: This option is available only for customers from the United States of America, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Hide checkout fields

The Hide checkout fields option allows your customers to skip ordinary checkout and pay with their PayPal account / Debit or Credit Card in just one click (works only when PayPal smart Buttons are enabled in your WordPress admin area).

But remember that other payment methods except PayPal will be unavailable if the Hide checkout fields option is enabled. This option is strongly recommended if you have PayPal as your only single payment gateway.  

If you have any questions regarding PayPal sandbox settings, account restrictions, or settings, please contact PayPal support.

Tracking data

Our integration will automatically send your order's tracking data, after updating your order with tracking ID. You will see that event in your order's log:
