Set Up PayPal Standard on my Shift4Shop Store

If you would like to add PayPal Standard as your store's payment option, this guide will show you how.

  1. Log into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager.

  2. Using the left navigation menu, go to Settings > Payment.

  3. Then, look for the "Payment Methods" area and click on Select Payment. Once there, you will see a page with several pre-installed payment method options including PayPal Express, WePay and a "Pay by Check" option.

Within the "Additional Gateways" area, you will also see a pre-created "Money Order" option.

To Add Paypal Standard, from the Online Payment Methods page:

4. Click on the +Add New button at the top right of the page.

5. Specify the country, state, order ranges and customer groups that this payment method will apply to.

6. Then, from the Payment Method drop-down menu, scroll down to the "Alternative Payments" section and select PayPal Payments Standard.

7. Click the +Add button (lower right) to proceed.

Configuring the Module

Your Payment Module will need to be tied to your respective PayPal account in order to accept payments. Fortunately, with PayPal Standard, this is as simple as adding your email address to the module.

8. Find your newly added "PayPal Payments Standard" and click on its Settings link.

9. Enter the email address (associated with your PayPal Standard Account) into the field provided.

10. Click Save at the top right of the page to finish setting up the payment method.

Once your settings are all complete, click on the payment option's Enable button (located to the right of it). The button will turn green to indicate that the option is enabled and ready for use.
