Getting Your PayPal API Username, Password And Signature

To use the PayPal Sync extension you need to input your API access details from PayPal. These are only available for business accounts.

After logging in to Paypal, click on your name in the upper right hand corner, and select Account Settings. Select Account Access in the menubar and click Update next to API Access:

Once you’re in the API Credentials area, click on the Manage API credentials under the NVP/SOAP API integration.

This takes you to the following screen. Select Request API Signature.

Click Agree and Submit.

Then click ‘Show’ on each of the below API Username, API Password and Signature and copy these into the page at Jetpack CRM > CRM Settings > PayPal Sync.

Once all the settings for the API access are in you’ll need to tell the Sync tool the first transaction date.

First transaction date: This is needed because the PayPal API doesn’t give you the first date of a transaction so will need to enter this so that the Sync tool knows where to start getting transactions from. Please note that Paypal can only import transactions up to 3 years old.

Once you’ve entered this information, head over to the PayPal Sync area of Sync tools and click Import Now.
