First to install WooCommerce PayPal Payments, you need: 

  • WordPress Version 5.3 or newer (installed)

  3. Search for the WooCommerce PayPal Payments plugin.  
  4. Click on Install Now and wait until the plugin is installed successfully.  
  5. You can activate the plugin immediately by clicking on Activate now on the success page. If you want to activate it later, you can do so via Plugins >Installed Plugins.  

Setup and configuration: 

  1. After installing and activating the WooCommerce PayPal Payments plugin, go to WooCommerce > Settings.  
  2. Click the Payments tab. 
  3. The Payment methods list will include two PayPal options.  
  4. Click Set Up (or manage if the extension is already active) next to PayPal. (not PayPal Standard).  MTS_aadedeji_0-1712316153166.png

  6. Activate PayPal by clicking the button and following the prompts to connect your live PayPal account. 
  7. After the onboarding was completed and the site is refreshed, ensure the checkbox next to Enable/Disable in the Standard Payments tab is checked and click Save changes. The PayPal gateway and smart buttons should now appear in the Checkout page.
