How to get PayPal Client ID, Secret Key, and Sandbox details:

To get started, visit the following website https://developer.paypal.com and log into your PayPal Dashboard.  

Then, in the Dashboard menu under Sandbox select, Accounts and create a Sandbox Business Account. This will give you the ability to make test payments. 

Next, create a PayPal app. To do this, select My Apps and Credentials in the Dashboard menu.

Then, select Create App and give your app a name. Choose the sandbox account you created in the step before and select, Create App once more. 

You should now see the My First App window and your Client ID. Below this, you will see Secret and an option to select show. Copy and paste both your Client ID and Secret into your Studiocart Settings.

Now you need to find your Sandbox details. Select My Apps & Credentials in the Dashboard menu, once more. Then, select Sandbox and click on the app name you created earlier. Copy and paste the Sandbox Email, Sandbox Client ID and Sandbox Secret into the Studiocart Settings. 

After copying over all of the details into the Studiocart Settings, make sure the Enable setting is toggled on and select, Save Settings.
