I attempted to setup the Give plugin with my existing paypal account and received the following error message:



I am trying to connect my PayPal account to the GiveWP plugin for WordPress. I have gone through the onboarding process to connect my account, but when I finish I'm given the following message from GiveWP:

  • PayPal client access token API request response is:

  • There was a problem with PayPal client rest API request and we could not find valid client id and secret.

Please help me resolve these account errors so I can begin accepting payments via PayPal on GiveWP.


I was not able to figure out how could I report the problem through the 'Resolution Center' as advised, or how to obtain any meaningful feedback from help desk.
