8. The PayPal Web Services API > 8.2. Create a Developer Account

Create a Developer Account

The first thing you need to do to access the PayPal API is set up a developer account at PayPal Developer Central. It’s simple, and best of all, it’s free. There is a wealth of information on the Developer Central site, including:

  • Sample code provided by PayPal that demonstrates most of the API

  • A moderated forum where you can ask (and receive answers to) common or obscure API-related questions

  • The PayPal Sandbox [Hack #87] , a test area in which you can run merchant transactions without using actual funds

PayPal Developer Central is located at https://developer.paypal.com. To create a developer account, click the registration link and enter basic information about yourself, such as your name, company, email address, as well as some optional profile questions.
