I’ve been using RapidCart Pro to build new carts on 3 sites so far. The software has been mostly good to use but I can’t get the cart to link to PayPal. The old RapidCart and other payment software only wanted the recipient’s email address. RapidCart Pro asks for an API Client ID and a secret ID.
I have pasted below the section of the Manual that says how to do it, so I started on my own website’s cart to figure it out before I try the client ones.
First I had to upgrade my paypal account to a business one and then get into the developer area… beyond my scope of understanding.
I have spent 7 days in there going around in circles. You can’t create an app without having a sandbox account (not sure what that is). It won’t let me add a sandbox account.
I tried ringing paypal and they told me the merchant ID/username/password was the information I needed and that somehow I needed to squeeze the three lots of information into the two fields in the setup. I tried various combinations but they didn’t work. They didn’t know what API numbers were when I asked.
I thought the problem might be my Mac / browser. So I got my neighbour’s new Windows laptop and went through paypal again to no avail. I wrote to the paypal Dashboard people and suggested they make an easier way to get this info for other people like me trying to use RapidCart Pro.
Can anyone suggest anything? Can I go back to paying an email address? I don’t want to have to go back to the old carts after all my hard work!
