Paypal Express

Paypal Express Overview

PayPal allows buyers to purchase or send money to anyone with an email address. PayPal is accepted by thousands of businesses worldwide. PayPal Express is preferred than PayPal Standard.

API Username and Password are PayPal-generated identifying account name and password that you use specifically for making API calls. You include your API username and password with every API call. The API username and password are different from your PayPal login username (email address) and password.

API Signature is a PayPal-generated unique digital signature (a line of text, or hash) that you copy from PayPal’s website and include in your API calls. An alternative to API Certificate security. Your digital signature, your API username, and your API password all together are called three-token authentication, because you include each of them as a programatic token in your API calls. An API signature is suitable for use with Microsoft Windows web servers or other shared web server configurations, such as those used by web hosting services. Multiple API signatures can be associated with your API username and password. For security, every time you view your API credential/signature on https://www.paypal.com, a new signature is generated. In your API calls, you can use any of the signatures that PayPal generates for you. All the signatures are equally valid until you remove your credentials by clicking Remove on the View API Signature page.
