Configure PayPal Express Checkout

To configure PayPal Express Checkout:
Step 1: In Sana Admin click: Setup > Ordering & checkout > Payment methods > Configuration > PayPal Express Checkout.

Step 2: Choose the appropriate payment integration mode.

There are two modes: test and live. Test mode allows to simulate the payment process as if it is a real payment and helps to make sure that everything will behave the same way when you go live. Live mode implies that a customer makes a real purchase using already configured payment provider and methods.

Step 3: Configure the payment provider by entering the payment provider specific settings of the test/ live account.

The table below provides the description of the PayPal Express Checkout payment provider fields:

Field Description
EMAIL The e-mail of the test/live seller account.
USER The API username of the test/live seller account.
PWD The API password of the test/live seller account.
SIGNATURE The API signature of the test/live seller account.
IpRange It is used as a security measure to prevent fraud. Some payment providers pass the payment status of an order by calling the confirm page. In this case it is possible for a malicious user to simulate this call and change the status of the order. To prevent this, a check on the IP of the call can be made by specifying the allowed IP (ranges) in this field.
Multiple values can be separated by the '|' character.

More detailed information about the PayPal parameters can be found on the official PayPal web site.

When PayPal Express Checkout is configured you can set up the necessary payment methods in Sana Admin that are supported by PayPal Express Checkout.

For information about how to create and configure payment methods in Sana Admin, see 'Payment methods'.

Test the payment/checkout flow to see if everything works fine using the created payment methods and the correct payment statuses.

When everything is done and tested, keep an eye on the payment log in the following days to be sure that everything is configured correctly.
