How to Set Up PayPal Express Checkout

Making the checkout process as easy as possible for customers can increase sales and reduce abandoned carts. With Volusion's PayPal Express Checkout integration, your customers will enjoy a quick and seamless checkout experience. You can even customize the PayPal Express Checkout pages with your store logo and colors.

PayPal Express Checkout is available to stores that use one of the six default PayPal currencies: USD, AUD, GBP, EUR, CAD, or JPY.

Getting Started

In order to use PayPal Express Checkout with your Volusion store, you'll need a PayPal business account. If you haven't already, sign up for PayPal Express Checkout and follow the prompts to create a business account. You can upgrade an existing PayPal personal account or create a new, separate business account. Note that if you already have a business account that you use for a different platform, you'll need to create a separate business account for Volusion payment purposes.

Once you've registered and set up your PayPal business account, view your API credentials and copy or write them down. You'll need this information when integrating PayPal Express Checkout with your Volusion store.
