PayPal Payments Pro UK - Confused by account settings

I am trying to use the Checkput Wizard and I am confused by what information is actually required.

I chose "Website Payments Pro - UK and no shipping on the first screen.

I am then confronted with a request to enter a USER, VENDOR and PWD.

I have UK PayPal Pro account, where do I find these settings, do I need to turn something on? Is it to do with API's, if so which options do I choose and then what data do I need to enter.

The USER, VENDOR, PASSWORD are credentials for your Paypal Payments Pro UK account.

The USER and VENDER will be the merchant login name that you use to log into to manage your PayPal Payments Pro UK account.

The PWD will be assigned to you when you sign up for PayPal Payments Pro UK, it cannot be retrieved online from your account, so if you are not sure what to use, you will need to call paypal.

Hi There
I've just been through this same issue myself if it helps here's a step by step of how you get the info needed.

1 once logged into papal go to your profile
2. Under Account Information Click on request API Credentials
3. This is the different bit look at option 2 which is Payflo Pro and click on Set up Payflow Pro API access
4. Click Create Access

Now you will see all the options you require.
The UK version of Paypal Website Payments Pro uses what was the old verisign Payflo accounts so no API.

Hope this helps all other fellow UK users
