The PayPal Standard Basic Add-on is the simple and fast version to get PayPal set up for your store. You might use this version just to get your store going, but we highly suggest you switch to the PayPal Standard Secure option.

To use PayPal Standard Basic, you can select the option in the Quick Setup page or enable it directly from the Add-ons page.



Once enabled, you will need to enter your PayPal email address. You can also set the text for the payment button.


You’ll then need to go into your PayPal account and enter your IPN information. The IPN is what tells Exchange that the payment has been processed.

To do this, you’ll need to visit Profile > My Selling Tools and find instant payment notifications. Then click the Update link.

To enter your IPN information, you’ll click choose IPN settings. Enter your notification URL and click Receive IPN messages. Then click Save.

EmbedVideo was given an illegal value for the alignment parameter "none". Valid values are "left", "center", or "right".
