    Hi Support

    I am really struggling trying to find out how to set this up.

    I have not found the information on the support site so need some clarification please.

    I applied to Paypal and received the following information:

    APP Username
    APP Password
    APP Signature

    This has been filled into the Dokan Paypal section in Woocommerce.

    The thing I cant find is the API APP ID

    This did not come with the other 3 numbers.

    I found this thread http://wedevs.com/support/topic/paypal-adaptive-setup/ that mentions this link http://apps.paypal.com

    Is this where I need to go and sign up for the API APP ID?

    I have taken a screen shot and added it as there is no information about this process that I can find

    Please urgently let me know as this is the final step before we can go live with the site

    Yes, you have to go there and apply for it. Please discuss with your paypal customer service if you have any issue.

    Mahi, this should probably be added to the documentation as it is very difficult and frustrating to find.

    I may do a ‘how to guide' for the paypal addaptive as it is pretty involved and I am sure future customers will benefit.

    Ok for anyone else reading this – the process is not too difficult to set up even though the application document is a little daunting.

    If you need to setup a API APP ID click on this link: http://apps.paypal.com

    You then need to sign in with your paypal account.

    Click on New App.

    This is what I filled in:

    Title: I called it Dokan

    The description is just about your site and what it does.

    Under adaptive payments I chose basic payments then parallel payments

    I added the estimated monthly/average transactions and said no to the AUP

    Testing information: I just added how the process would work ie how the money would be split between us and the vendor when the payment was processed.

    For supply test account I added not available.

    I uploaded some ID and then finally added my url

    I submitted the App and was automatically approved. I was given 2 numbers

    One was a sandbox API APP ID and one was a live number

    It was easier than I thought so now I just need to try and test it with a sandbox account.

    I forsee a few more sruggles but will hopefully be able to find solutions now that I have all the numbers!

    Hopefully this info will help some people and save them time researching!

    Thank you for posting this Jason!!! I had already given up on my project because of this…this step definitely needs documentation and a guide of suggestions.

    Ok so I followed your instructions but I'm getting this error:

    error:14094410:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert handshake failure

    I have created my Classic API App in developer.paypal.com but still getting an error.

    I was conditionally approved, I'm not sure if this matter but I can't get payments to correctly process.

    Thanks for your reply Mario.

    I understand that to go live, the App has to be approved but I'm just trying to fire the API in Sandbox mode. Shouldn't it work regardless?
