Which PayPal API?
hello, my client has upgraded to paypal website payments pro & has been approved. I logged in, clicked on Profile, request API credentials. Now it's asking me: Option 1 - PayPal API or Option 2 - Payflow Pro. I think Option 1 is the correct one to use but I'm just not sure. Which one should I request? Thank you.
Once I click on "Set up PayPal API credentials and permissions" for Option 1, it then asks: Option 1 - Grant API permissions to a third party to use certain PayPal APIs on your behalf or Option 2 - Request API credentials to create your own API username and password. Again I think option 1 is correct but I just want to make sure. Thanks again!
Once I select Grant API permissions to a third party to use certain PayPal APIs on your behalf, it asks me to create an API username, does the username matter at all? Then "Select Your API Access Level" Direct Payment, Express Checkout, Reporting and Back office APIs, Authorization and Settlement APIs. Which options should I check?
I actually went back to the beginning, Profile, request API credentials & selected option 2 & gave me all the information right away. Is this the correct way to do it?
