API Certificate Code

API Certificate Code


I am not understanding something.

In order to set up PayPal on my website in WordPress I have been requested to provide API Certificate and password etc.,  Although I have followed the instructions here in the following link, I am still no further forward.  I go through all the motions but I don't get provided with an actual code!

Seems very complicated compared to obtaining API codes from other sources. Please, can someone help?  Thanks,
