To enable the PayPal option on your booking engine, you must have a Business Account with PayPal. If you haven't already created a business account, you can create one here.

Once the business account is created, follow the steps below to enable PayPal in ResNexus:

Log into ResNexus and navigate to Settings >Advanced Settings> Credit Card Processing

In the PayPal Section, click on Account Login

Enter your PayPal account Email and Password, click Login

When logged into Paypal, click the profile icon on the top right side of the page. From the Business Profile menu, select Profile and Settings.

Note: If you do not see the profile icon on the top right, select Profile which appears in the top menu when the My Account tab is selected.

From the left menu, click My selling tools. In the Selling online section, click the Update link for the API access item.

To generate the API Signature, click Request API Credentials on the API Access page.


Note: If you’ve already generated a set of API credentials, you’ll have to delete your existing set before you can generate a new set of credentials. In this case, you’ll see a View API Signature link where the Request API credentials link is circled in the diagram above. *Be sure to choose Signature, not Certificate. Click the View API Signature link, and on the page that appears, click the Remove button to delete the existing signature.

Select Request API signature and click Agree and Submit to generate the API signature.

Check the box in front of "Use PayPal Express Checkout to collect Deposits for all guests booking online...." Copy and paste API Username, API Password, and Signature into the corresponding areas. Then click SAVE.

Be sure to enable the Auto Collect setting and set your preferences.

What will my guests see when I have PayPal Checkout enabled?
