Here's a step-by-step guide to connect your PayPal account and your WorldClass Academy:

Step 1: login to your PayPal Developer account
Make sure you're logged in here and head over to 'my apps' page here.Scroll down to 'REST API Apps'

Step 2: create a new app and name it
Click on 'create app' and give it a name you'll remember (e.g. WorldClass awesome app)

Step 3: toggle that app from 'sandbox' to 'live' mode
Locate the toggle on the upper left side and move it to 'live' mode

Step 4: find app key, app secret and inputs on admin panel
Go to your WorldClass Admin panel over at
Once logged in, head over to 'app settings' -> 'general' in the side bar and change the payment method from WorldClass to 'use your own PayPal'.

This will reveal two inputs - one for app key and one for app secret.

Step 5: submit keys
Locate both key and secret in your PayPal app screen

Copy paste the key and secret from your PayPal account into their respective inputs on WorldClass. You should see a green checkmark next to the form inputs to indicate the keys are in valid format.

Hit 'submit' (the submit button will be disabled unless there are valid inputs in the form)

Step 6: perform your first live test transaction

You're basically done but we strongly recommend you to set a dummy course as a paid one for $1 and use a standard user account on your academy to purchase that course.

Make sure you're able to checkout properly as a user and receive the funds in your PayPal account.
