Important! We install PayPal for free. However, please note that PayPal doesn't like Taobao and therefore there is a risk of account blocking. If you take a positive decision, OpenTrade Commerce is not responsible for cooperation with this payment system.

Only 1 way is supported at the moment, in which buyer is sent to PayPal page where he chooses how to pay.

To have PS integrated into your site, you should take the following steps:

  1. Conclude an agreement with payment system.
  2. Review below instruction
  3. Set up your account or digital wallet (at your discretion) in PayPal:
  • On your own, using below instruction.
  • Allow access to your account/e-wallet, thus all necessary settings will be made by OpenTrade Commerce specialists.

4. Provide necessary data to OpenTrade Commerce specialists in support request for modification when setting up the account/e-wallet independently.

We recommend you to make a test payment for a small sum to check system availability once PayPal is integrated.
