Integrating PayPal For Accepting Payments

PayPal is a global payment gateway that supports online money transfers and functions as a highly secure platform for many businesses worldwide. Many event attendees prefer using it for their ticket booking, making it one of our preferred transaction portals. When integrated with Yapsody, it allows you to accept payment via major credit services like Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express online. 

Steps To Integrate PayPal For Accepting Payments

1. Set Up Your Account

Set up a Premier or Business account with PayPal, if you haven’t already. Yapsody requires a premier or business account to link PayPal to your event website. 

2. Verify Your PayPal Account

Make sure that your PayPal account is created and verified before you start selling tickets. You’ll receive a confirmation email from PayPal. 

3. Request API Credentials

After setting up your Premier or Business account, follow these steps to request your API Username, API Password, and API Signature. Go to their website and log into your account.
