Before setting up the PayPal Standard integration, we recommend that you try the  PayPal Express Checkout integration. It's an easier option to set up and provides a really great experience for your visitors. 

However, if your PayPal account doesn't have the PayPal Express Checkout option available PayPal standard is still an excellent choice, check out the steps below to get started. 

STEP #1-  In IES on the left side of your screen you will find the main menu bar. Click the "Integrations" icon to open the "My Integrations" page. On the right side of the My Integrations page, you will find the "Add Integrations" button, click this button to display the "Add New Integration" window. 

STEP #2-  In the ‘Add New PayPal Standard Integration” window- enter a name that will help you to identify the PayPal account you are using. 

STEP #3- To locate the API key, login to your PayPal account and in the top right corner select "Profile". In the drop down menu find "Profile and Settings" 

 On the "My Profile" page choose the "My Selling Tools" tab from the menu bar on the left of the page.

STEP #4- In the "Selling Online" section go to ‘Website Preferences” and select Update.

On the "Website Payment Preferences" page you will need to enable  "Auto Returns for Website Payments".

STEP #5- You can now return to  IES and copy your store URL in the address bar.
Ex. yourstorename.myecomshop.com
Now paste the URL  into the "Return URL" field. Go to "Payment Data Transfer" and select "On" to enable this option.

STEP #6- Once you have enabled the "Payment Data Transfer" field, you will find the Identify Token key.

You can now copy the token and paste it into the "API key" field in IES. Click "Save" to complete the integration. 

Now, you're all set! You can now use your PayPal account as a payment option for your IES store.
