How do I set up Paypal as a payment gateway (UK)?

I’m just finding myself going around in circles on the Paypal website, and have no idea how to get my hands on the information that I need to plug into Magento to allow me to use Paypal to accept credit and debit cards. Any hints on where I actually have to go?

The Paypal site leads me either to ‘partners’ which does not include Magento, or to a developers area which tells me how to write an module to talk to the Paypal API. I can’t seem to find where to apply and get hold of the information that the Paypal module requires (API user name, password, Paypal URL).

I suspect it is all much simpler than I am expecting, so I’m overlooking something really obvious. However, when I have used Protx in the past, it was all a very clear step-by-step process.

I have a verified Paypal account already, that has been validated and active for many years.

API information is located here:

PayPal > Profile > API Access > Option 2 > Request API signature

Wow - thank you. I would never have found that in a million years. I was getting lost in the merchant account section.

Much appreciated.

I’ve since found this page that explains it all:

https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?&cmd;=_render-content&content;_ID=developer/e_howto_api_NVPAPIBasics

I was actually trying to find out what the API URL is.
