First Step: Create a payment method
First, you’ll need to create a payment method. To create a new payment method, click on the profile icon at the top menu of your dashboard. Then select “Payment methods”.

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: https://dash.formaloo.net/u/payments 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.
