To receive the credentials, you need to create a corresponding REST API application:

  1. Log into the https://developer.paypal.com/ with your existing credentials.

  2. Navigate to Dashboard > My Apps & Credentials in the main menu to the left.

  3. Scroll down to the REST API apps section and click Create App to request the credentials.

  7. Use the credentials to set up the test integration between PayPal Express and OroCommerce.

Once you have successfully configured the PayPal Express integration as described in the PayPal Express guide, and the connection to the test environment is working properly, you can move to a production stage, but this time use the production credentials.

  1. Log into the https://developer.paypal.com/ with your existing credentials.

  2. Navigate to Dashboard > My Apps & Credentials in the main menu to the left.

  3. Scroll down to the REST API apps section and select the required application by clicking it.
