The PayPal Standard Basic option in iThemes Exchange is the quick and easy way to get PayPal set up in your store. While you might use this version to get your store going, we do recommend that you switch to the PayPal Standard Secure option as soon as possible.
To enable the PayPal standard basic option in Exchange, you can select it when you go through Quick Setup. Or, you can enable it through the Add-ons page.
Once it’s enabled, you’ll need to enter your PayPal email address. You can also change your purchase button label here.
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.
Your store is now set up with PayPal Standard.
