How to set up PayPal on Shopify?
Shopify establishes a PayPal Express Checkout account for the email address you used to build your store when you set it up.
If you already have a PayPal account with that email address, you will immediately start receiving money from PayPal orders.
You must finish setting up your PayPal account if you wish to issue refunds or manually capture money.
You must upgrade your personal account to a business account in order to use PayPal on your store.
The majority of PayPal’s features and capabilities for business owners are only available when using a business account.
If you don’t already have a PayPal business account with the email address you used to create your store, you can either add your email address to an existing PayPal account or create a new PayPal business account with the same email address.
Now, let’s complete the setup of your PayPal account.

If you wish to use PayPal to issue refunds or manually capture payments, you’ll need to grant Shopify access to your PayPal business account.

Steps to take:

  1. Go to Settings > Payments in your Shopify admin.
  2. Click Deactivate in the PayPal area.
  3. To confirm, click Deactivate once more.
  4. Select your PayPal account type in the PayPal area.
  5. Then press the Activate button
  6. After that, click Next: Enter your PayPal account’s email address.
  7. After entering your PayPal account password, click login:
  8. Note: If you’ve recently used another PayPal account, the email associated with that account may already be filled in. Make sure you’re using the correct email address for the account you’re connecting to your store.
  9. Click I Give Permission on the PayPal permissions page.
  10. Note: You won’t see the permissions page if your account is already set up.
  11. Click the “Confirm” button on the PayPal confirmation screen. Return to Shopify.
  12. Make a test transaction to ensure that everything is in working order.
