Creating PayPal App to get "Client ID" and "Secret Key"

Go to SellviaSettings Payments to enable PayPal as your payment gateway:

  • Go to 'My Apps and Credentials' and select 'Live' (live keys):

  • Add App name (it could be anything, e.g., your site name or business name) and click Create App:

Note: Please remember that PayPal has its own restrictions for accounts from different countries. Sometimes you need to have a business account (e.g., Russia), sometimes a personal one is enough (e.g., USA).

Once you've created an app, you can either enable testing mode or live mode.

  • Copy your Live API credentials and paste them into your WP admin area.

  • Disable 'demo mode' when you are ready to accept payments in Live mode.

Smart Payment Buttons

Activating the Enable Smart Payment Buttons option will allow your clients to pay with their credit cards even if they don't have a PayPal account.

Hide checkout fields

The Hide checkout fields option allows your customers to skip ordinary checkout and pay with their PayPal account / Debit or Credit Card in just one click (works only when Smart Payment Buttons are enabled in your WordPress admin area).
But remember that other payment methods except PayPal will be unavailable if the 'Hide checkout fields' option is enabled. This option is strongly recommended if you have PayPal as your only single payment gateway.
