Prior to configuring the PayPal Payment Gateway integration, an organization must have a PayPal business account. To retrieve the Client ID and Client Secret values required for configuring a payment account in Eventelis:
- Go to: https://developer.paypal.com/developer/applications/ and log in with your PayPal business account credentials.
- Navigate to the My Apps & Credentials tab and click the CREATE APP button in the REST API Apps section. This allows the Eventelis system to authenticate with PayPal and process payments.
- Name the application (this does not impact the integration) and associate the Live account.
- Click the CREATE APP button.
- The App will be created and the administrator can copy the Client ID and Secret from this page. Note: These values do not expire, but they can be disabled by an administrator if needed.
