This is the official Paypal Express extension for Spree.
Behind-the-scenes, this extension uses PayPal's Merchant Ruby SDK.
Add this extension to your Gemfile with this line:
gem 'spree_paypal_express', github: 'spree-contrib/better_spree_paypal_express'
Install the gem using Bundler:
Copy & run migrations
bundle exec rails g spree_paypal_express:install
Restart your server
If your server was running, restart it so that it can find the assets properly.
Go to PayPal's Developer Website, sign in with your PayPal account, click
Sandbox Accounts and create a new
Business account. Once the account is created, click on the triangle next to its email address, then
API Credentials tab will provide your API credentials (probably). If this tab is blank, try refreshing the page.
You will also need a
Personal account to test the transactions on your site. Create this in the same way, finding the account information under
Profile as well. You may need to set a password in order to be able to log in to PayPal's sandbox for this user.
In Spree, go to the admin backend, click
Configuration and then
Payment Methods and create a new payment method. Select
Spree::Gateway::PayPalExpress as the provider, and click
Create. Enter the email address, password and signature from the
API Credentials tab for the Business account on PayPal.
Sign in to PayPal, then click
Profile and then (under
Account Information on the left), click
API Access. On this page, select
Option 2 and click
View API Signature. The username, password and signature will be displayed on this screen.
If you are unable to find it, then follow PayPal's own documentation.
Same as sandbox setup, but change
