How to set up PayPal


For PayPal to work with Buycraft you will need a Premier or Business Paypal account. To receive payments, you will need to verify your email and link a bank account or debit/credit card to the account. 

Buycraft settings

Once you have set up your Paypal account you will need to go to "Settings > Payment Gateways" and click "Setup Payment Gateway".  From this page, you can set up PayPal by selecting "Setup" on the Paypal option.
In the Paypal settings on Buycraft, you will then need to enter your Paypal email and click update. The other options include, "require shipping address", "force checkout language" and a price offset for the gateway.
Now your PayPal account is set up and ready to start selling items on your store!
