Where do I get "Application ID" for Fundraising | Settings | Advanced Payment Options | Pa

“Fundraising | Settings | Advanced Payment Options | Paypal API Credentials” asks for “Application ID” which I cannot find searching through Paypal. Also the dashboard link in the plugin settings is broken “Register then submit your application” <https://appreview.x.com/create-appvetting-app!input.jspa&gt;

    Hello drron!

    I am currently working on a usage Doc for the fundraiser and am including step by step instructions on how to do this :slight_smile:

    You will need to get your application ID from x.com

    Here is a summary:

    You have to submit your application, giving some basic details of your site, just so that PayPal knows you're not a scam site and legitimately processing delayed payments.

    So, it's easier than you think. Just visit this link https://www.x.com/developers/paypal

    Then click Sign Up in the upper right corner.

    You will be asked to register with your ebay or PayPal account information. This is the only way you can register, there is no separate password/username for this site.

    Once you are registered and logged in you will need to Navigate to “My Account” in the upper right corner. Then click “New App” in the left menu that comes up.

    Fill out your App, I'll attach a cheat sheet :slight_smile:

    Once that's done, it's a waiting game. It usually takes about a week, but may take up to 10 days if there are no issues.

    You may get an email saying more information is needed. If so, just visit your account page and click on “Status Messages” and reply accordingly.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    Thanks, your explanation was extremely helpful. Now all I have to do is get Paypal (x.com) to respond. I submitted the application on July 13th. Then I received one set of questions, which I answered on July 23rd. I have not heard a word back from them, not even an acknowledgement that they received my answers to their questions.

    Would you happen to know how to contact them? I cannot seem to find contact info.

    I’d really love to see this plugin work with a provider other than Paypal, e.g. Wepay claims to have an API for crowdfunding: https://www.wepay.com/payments-api

    Maybe we could crowdfund the development of getting this plugin to work with WePay :wink:

    Thanks, I did finally get approval from Paypal. It was a really arduous process. As I start to actually use the plugin, I will post more details about my experience, It would be great to see a list of links to sites that are using it.

    One thing I am curious about is possible plans for other payment gateways besides Paypal.
