Hi @dreamlove1000 


Hmm, that sounds like the WooCommerce plugin you're trying to use is relying on an "account permissions" link instead of your API credentials for an action like updating tracking. I might reach out to them (the maker of the plugin) to see if they can walk you through giving them more permissions to update your tracking information. The bummer is, the makers of that plugin have to generate and provide the link to add more permissions as PayPal can't do that for them or you. 


I hope that helps!
