How to create a PayPal business account
Smoothcomp works with Paypal Business accounts (private accounts don't work). You can easily convert your account to a business account or create a new one.
If you want to use PayPal as your payment solution you need to follow these steps.
- Create a PayPal account and turn it into a business account (if you already have a PayPal account you can use that and convert it into a business account)
Once you have created the account and logged in, click on Tools and choose All Tools and then Integrate PayPal
From this page click API credentials
Click on NVP/SOAP API integration (Classic) and manage API credentials
Now you should see a page where you can view your API credentials by clicking the "show" link for all three links (username, password and signature)
Make sure to copy them exactly as they are.
Now it's time to connect your PayPal account to your organizer account on Smoothcomp. Log in with your organizer account to Smoothcomp and input the API credentials to your organizer manager under settings and the PayPal Express option. Click save and you are done!
If you activate automatic refund you can register yourself and pay to make sure it works as you expect. When you cancel you will automatically get your money back to your creditcard. Smooth! :)
