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:

  1. Go to: https://developer.paypal.com/developer/applications/ and log in with your PayPal business account credentials.
  2. 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.
  3. Name the application (this does not impact the integration) and associate the Live account.
  4. Click the CREATE APP button.
  5. 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.
