Setting up your PayPal Business Account

If you use PPS Online Appointment Booking for your website then you have the option of integrating your PayPal account with your Online Booking system so that you can receive credit card payments from your patient’s online booking. You can then set each of your available Appointment Types to have a default charge – this will then be paid by your clients prior to the confirmation of their booking.

The following guide will take you through how to set up your PayPal Business account and then sending us your API details.

Setting up your PayPal Business Account

1. You will need to visit the PayPal website and choose the Business option. The account you will need is to ‘Accept cards on a website’. Follow this link for more information: https://www.paypal-business.co.uk/accept-credit-cards-on-a-website-with-paypal/index.htm

2. After creating your PayPal Business account, you should log in and click on the ‘API Access’ link as shown below:

3. This will then display this screen where you should proceed with the ‘View API Signature’ option.

Paypal API Details

In order to activate PayPal for your PPS Online booking system you will need to enter your API Username, API Password, API Signature and merchant ID in the Online Booking Admin Module

An example of the screen from which PayPal API details can be seen, this is accessed under My Account >> Overview.

An example of the screen from which your PayPal merchant ID can be seen, this is accessed under My Profile>> My Business Details.
