Secure Trading has integrated with PayPal Express Checkout allowing you to accept PayPal transactions through the Secure Trading gateway. Please note that this PayPal integration will not work within an iframe.
There are a number of simple steps required to set PayPal up on your Secure Trading account:
a. Contact your Secure Trading Account Manager to set-up PayPal on your account.
b. To add PayPal you will first need to have a PayPal Business Account. If you do not already have a PayPal Business Account, then you can open one by clicking here.
There will be no additional fees for performing PayPal transactions on your Secure Trading account. However, standard PayPal transaction fees will apply.
c. Verify your PayPal account
To get Verified, PayPal asks you to provide your debit or credit card or bank or funding details. They then make sure that you are in control of your bank account or card, which helps to prevent fraud such as identity theft.
