OJS 3.1 PayPal settings

I want to setup the paypal payment option in OJS 3.1.
I have gone through the Setting–>Distribution–>Payments
I choose the payment option as PayPal there and there are three fields under this option.
PayPal Payment Settings-
Account Name -
Client ID -
Secret -

I have no idea what values must enter in these field and in PayPal profile from where I can access these values.
Please help me to setup PayPal Payment settings to receive payments.

Hi @navmalik,

Follow the PayPal directions for creating a REST API application: https://developer.paypal.com/docs/integration/admin/manage-apps/

Hi, I did everything. I have configured my Distribution Settings> Payment > Paypal Payment Settings
Created a Rest API in Paypal and placed every detail under Account Name, Client ID and Secret. But the paypal payment is not working. Everytime when someone tries to make a purchase it shows a blank screen. Please help me. I there any problem with the Paypal plugin ? I have also used OJS 2.8 but there was no issues like this and everything was working fine.

Hi @Rahul_Arora,

I see you’ve also posted this on another thread. Please don’t double-post – it clutters the forum.
