Where, in PayPal Developer, do I find the API username, password and signature?

I'm looking to update gateways.php to include our client's live PayPal credentials but PayPal Developer seems to have changed so much since I last used it. Could you help me create/locate the API username, password and signature?

You'd also helped us set up an IPN for refunds made in PayPal, in a Sandbox test environment, and we need to make sure that's set up in the new live account.

Hope to hear from you.
Thank you.

My client has created a developer account, for the live PayPal Business account that they want to use with the website. Details for that are provided below. Thank you.

After much gnashing of teeth with PayPal support, we have our API Username, Password and Signature. Turns out that a Developer account is completely redundant for this purpose. I'm, therefore, really not sure what the purpose of a PayPal Developer account is.

Can you please confirm if we simply need to change this...

$WA_PayPal_PayPal_API_TestMode = true;



To this...

$WA_PayPal_PayPal_API_TestMode = false;



...on line 5 in gateways.php to initiate the Live credentials?

Thank you.

That is correct. And make sure that the live credentials are correct above. The sandbox testing is only needed to ensure that transaction fees aren't lost when doing test transactions.
