How to activate or change PayPal settings

  1. Go to your store admin page, click Settings and then click on the Payments section.

    By default, we define your PayPal account email with the default store email. If you already have another PayPal account, you only need to change this email. paypal1

  2. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can keep the email you used to create your store. As soon as you receive your first order through the Checkout, PayPal will send you an email that contains a link and instructions to complete your account setup and claim your funds.

FAQs

Can I use the same PayPal account as my store, to make a purchase?

No, you can not have the same PayPal account as your store when making a purchase. Even, if you want to make a test purchase, you will have to use another account.

Do my clients need a PayPal account to buy from my store?

Your clients do not need a PayPal account to pay your orders. What happens is that if they have a PayPal account they'll first see the option to pay via PayPal.

You can test this case by loging into PayPal and then making a test purchase in your Jumpseller store with the same browser. If you delete your cookies (or use a different browser that has never logged into PayPal) you will first see the fields to add your credit card information at PayPal instead of the PayPal login. This may depend according to which country you’re accessing the PayPal page.

In which currencies can I sell with PayPal?

PayPal supports only the most popular currencies, like USD, EUR or Brazilian Real. If you plan to sell in Chilean Peso or Icelandic Krone, you'll have to choose a different payment gateway. Please check all supported currencies at PayPal: Supported credit cards and currencies.

We can add new payment gateways, and are always open to feedback. Please contact us anytime.
