How to create a PayPal payment method

For adding PayPal, you need to add your PayPal API Credentials. You can get your API keys at this link. Log in to your PayPal account by clicking on the “Login into Dashboard” button.

1. In the My apps & credentials dashboard, choose the “Live” option instead of “Sandbox”.

2. Then click on the “Create App” button, add a name for your app, and select the “Create app” button.

3. Now, copy and paste your PayPal Client ID & Secret here: as instructed above. Your Client ID is the merchant code, and your Secret is the secret key in Formaloo.

For your connection to work, it’s important to make sure that your app is in “Live mode”, not “Sandbox” as instructed in the first step. In the above gif, we’ve skipped this step.

Remember to connect your payment method to your form. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how you can set up a fixed amount as your form’s payment. Also in this tutorial, you’ll learn how to calculate the total payable amount based on your user choices on your formaloos.
