How to integrate the PayPal Connect feature with a SaaS platform?
Hello, we're working on developing a SaaS tool, where a user can connect his/her PayPal account (mostly personal) and can sell digital items via the shop feature.
As some of our users are old and not so tech savvy person it is sometimes impossible for them to find the Client_ID and Secret_Key to connect their PayPal account (which is only available for the business account). That's why we would like to introduce the easy connect option but after looking into some documentation, I got the following requirements to become a partner in order to use the multiparty payment option.
Is there any other way to integrate PayPal easily with the system?
