How do I set up PayPal Advanced?
Posted by Henry Suarez
For 3dcart's PayPal Advanced and PayPal PayFlow Link integrations, you will need to configure the following settings in both your 3dcart Online Store Manager and your specific manager.paypal.com interface. This KB article will describe the settings needed.
Before you begin, you will need the following:
Once you have all of the above you may proceed with the following steps:
3dcart Online Store Manager Setup
Now that you have your PayPal Advanced method setup, you will enter your account information. When you set up your PayPal Advanced account, you would have been given a Merchant Login, User Name, and Password for the PayPal service. (The Partner Name is already integrated on your store)
Note: For the Password, click on the icon located to the right of the word "enter"
Some Additional Notes:

Part of the integration requires the use of a specific template layout being selected in your PayPal Manager interface. (See step 11 below) However, in order to use that layout, you must first enter Error and Return URL paramaters into the set up pages.
After saving changes on this page, you will proceed to the next few steps, select the required layout, and then come back to the set up page to remove those URLs. Please see step 12 below.

To check this setting, go to the "set up" tab of your manager.paypal.com interface and set your transaction process mode to "Live" using the drop down menu at the very top of the page.
Your PayPal Advanced Method is now set up. To ensure it is working, place a test order on your store and - when you get to the final checkout page - you should see a screen similar to the following:
The Payment Method will allow your customers to checkout using their PayPal account (similar to PayPal Express redirect) as well as entering their credit card information directly onto your page (similar to PayPal Pro)
