PayPal Configuration

Recommended Posts

This is rather confusing.  I'm trying to set up PayPal as my payment gateway.  I've run into some confusion and need help.

In WHMCS it is asking for

API Username  API Details are required for Refunds and Subscription cancellations
API Password

API Signature


When I go to the PayPal site I don't see any of this.  They provide two items (which I won't list here)

Client ID


I don't want to be guessing on this as I want it to work right the first time.   Now I'm inclined to believe that API username and API Password are the username and password I log into PayPal  would that make the ClintID the API Signature?   

I'd really appreciate any assistance.  Thanks.

Hi Tad,

I can see that you are using the PayPal Basic module, below are the details around the API Credentials to be used for this module.

API Fields

Used for issuing refunds within WHMCS (saving the need to login at PayPal).

These credentials can be accessed with the API Credentials tool found in the Tools > All Tools section of the PayPal Business dashboard. Alternatively, they can be accessed directly by navigating to https://www.paypal.com/businessmanage/credentials/apiAccess

For more information refer to Automated Refunds

      Client charged 2nd time even if invoice is paid, Client paying using PayPal subscription. BUT In previous two months it was normal and charging only once per invoice.
      Invoice 1: https://nimb.ws/J2Apmk
      Invoice 2: https://nimb.ws/W1ci0K
      Log: https://nimb.ws/gdYsqv
      Is this setting from PayPal Subscription or anything else in Product setup?
      Thanks in advance

      I am still struggling with my Paypal gateway in WHMCS setup.
      I have a question, when you select Paypal as the prefered payment gateway.  2 x PayPal payment gateways come up.
      1. PayPal - it asks for Client ID and Client secret. - which someone at Paypal told me they don't use any longer.
      2. Paypal basic - which asks for API user name, Password, and signature
      So which one would you recommend?
      I completed both, but the payment page is sometimes being skipped by the process. Maybe because I have both completed.

      i want to loop through all these checkboxes and generate them dynamically according to their roles and to concatenate role id dynamically  with their friendly names  instead of writing them manually , is there any way to do this ? 
      function leave_module_config()
          return [
              'fields' => [
                  'Checkbox Field Name' => [
                      'FriendlyName' => 'role1',
                      'Type' => 'yesno',
                      'Description' => 'Tick to enable',
                      'FriendlyName' => 'role2',
                      'Type' => 'yesno',
                      'Description' => 'Tick to enable',
                      'FriendlyName' => 'role3',
                      'Type' => 'yesno',
                      'Description' => 'Tick to enable',
                      'FriendlyName' => 'role4',
                      'Type' => 'yesno',
                      'Description' => 'Tick to enable',

      I think they update billing system itself with WHMCS API, not the update for the modules API
      I'm 100% sure everything is correct on my side.

      That's means you cannot provision accounts. so they release it anyway.
