How do I add PayPal as a Payment Method?


Many of you would like to get your store up and running as fast as possible. This can be easily achieved if you use PayPal. Customers do not require a PayPal account to make a purchase, as it has the facility to accept debit/credit cards through a guest checkout.
To set this up, you require a verified PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account you can sign up here: https://www.paypal.com/signup/account .
