    Hi there @HamRadioDude,

    Hope you’re well today and thanks for your question.

    Sure! I’d be happy to help :slight_smile:

    From the list you’ve posted above, that list looks a different list than what you should be seeing, possibly the rest API list and not the classic API.

    Can you post a screenshot please? :slight_smile:


    Kind Regards

    Hi there @HamRadioDude,

    Thanks for that, I’ve just taken a look and they’ve changed the layout again since the last time I checked :slight_smile:

    Anyway, I can provide some clarification on this.

    Adaptive accounts should be ignored, this is for managing or creating actual PayPal accounts, this step isn’t required and shouldn’t be filled in.

    3rd Party permissions should also be ignored, this is again for 3rd party managing of a PayPal account, often used by companies, who need to make aspects of their account available to members of staff.

    Step by step payment flow instructions, what they require is the workflow of how the system works, i.e, land on site > add products to cart > checkout > fill in order details > fill in shipping details > complete payment, that is a basic example and it should be as detailed as possible, while retaining a workflow style.

    Test URL, where they can test out the system live.

    Test account name and password, for the test URL, for your site.


    Kind Regards
