You can connect your PayPal account to Balloonary to quickly add a PayPal Smart Button to your Balloonary landing page.

You must add  the call-to-action type BUY WITH PAYPAL to your Balloonary landing page of your campaign to use the PayPal integration.

Here are the 3 steps you need to follow:

1. Create a PayPal Business account

If you already have a PayPal BUSINESS account, please continue with step 2.

If you already already have a PRIVATE PayPal account:

Open https://www.paypal.com/ and log in.
Click on the cog icon in the top right to open your settings

Click the link at the bottom of the “Account Settings” tile named “Upgrade to business account”.
Follow PayPal’s instructions from here. It is free and pretty straight forward to upgrade.

If you don’t have any PayPal account yet:

Open https://www.paypal.com/ and click on “Create account” in the top right of the page.
Now select the second of the two options named “Business Account” and click “Next”.
Follow PayPal’s instructions from here. It is free and pretty straight forward to finish the setup for the business account.

2. Create a Live App

Once you have a PayPal Business account and are logged in,
open https://developer.paypal.com/ 1
Hover over your name on the top right of the page and click “Dashboard”
You should see a headline saying “My apps & credentials”. Underneath that there is a toggle set to “Sandbox”. Switch it to “Live”.

Now click the “Create app” button just a few rows down.

Name your app. This will not be public, so any random name will do. And click “Create App” at the bottom.
You should now see your new app in the list. Make sure that you’re still in the “Live” tab. Click your new app open its details.
This is where you’ll find your Client ID and Secret which you will need in the next step.

3. Add your PayPal API credentials to Balloonary

Click on INTEGRATIONS in the navigation bar
Click CONNECT in the PayPal integration module
Copy/paste your CLIENT ID and SECRET In the “Connect PayPal” modal
