PayPal API Signature for Pay Per View

I can't figure out how to get the API "Signature" from PayPal. I was able to get a certificate, and it provides me a "fingerprint" but I can't find a "signature." Can you help?

    Hi there @Oliver Kroner

    Welcome to WPMU DEV, glad to have you aboard!

    Yep, finding the right information at PayPal can be a bit of a task indeed.

    If you are setting things up for live transactions, you'll need to log into your actual PayPal account. Once there, click Profile in the top menu, then My Selling Tools in the sidebar, and then click the Update link where you see API Access (see screenshot).

    On the next screen, click View API Signature under Option 2. You'll find your live Username, Password & Signature there.

    I hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:
