For any online transactions, such as on your e-commerce website, the obvious goal is a high number of sales conversions. What’s less obvious to many who host these websites is that it takes more than a good product and a sales funnel builder like ClickFunnels to secure the sale.

Even your payment methods play a role, and many consumers prefer PayPal these days. So, how do you add it to your page?

How to Integrate ClickFunnels with PayPal

To integrate ClickFunnels with PayPal, you need to take action on both platforms separately.

Before you start, you need to activate your PayPal Business Account. 

PayPal Platform: Step-by-Step Guidelines

Log in to your PayPal account and pick the ‘My Apps and Credentials’ menu item. Here you need to:

  • Ensure you set the account to ‘Live.’
  • Create and name your app. 

You need your API (Application Programming Interface) credentials once you work on the ClickFunnels platform. Select the ‘Live’ tab to open these details. Also, click ‘Show’ – you’ll find it under ‘Secret’ – to view details such as your PayPal Client ID.

Now you’re ready to work on ClickFunnels. Keep the PayPal credentials on hand or keep the tab open to easily switch between the two pages.

Important Notes

Understanding how the platforms work will streamline your integration process:

  • A funnel will only work with one payment gateway – in this case, PayPal – at a time. To offer buyers multiple payment gateways, create separate funnels, duplicate features, and then provide buttons for customers to navigate to the option they prefer. 
  • You can test the funnel by following similar steps on your PayPal platform by opting for the ‘Sandbox App.’ In that case, the credentials will only work in a test mode.
  • You must also integrate the Sandbox app on ClickFunnels to have two different PayPal gateways. You’ll use one for testing, but make sure to connect to the live option for real, live payments. 

Adding a PayPal Button to Your ClickFunnels Page

We’ve seen how the modern consumer expects quick workflows and information on demand. To make it easy for customers to complete transactions, you should make all payment information and actions accessible.

This lowers the risk of prospective customers navigating away because they didn’t immediately find what they were looking for.

On ClickFunnels, you can add a PayPal button to make it clear and easy for customers to access their favorite payment gateway. 

You’ll work on both your PayPal and Clickfunnels pages:

  1. On ClickFunnels, activate the Button Element and open Settings
  2. On PayPal’s E-mail tab, copy the code
  3. Back on ClickFunnels, select ‘Set Action’ and then ‘Go to Website.’ 
  4. Paste in what you’ve copied from PayPal

As a retailer, it works in your favor to make the shopping experience as easy and intuitive as possible.

We’ve seen from experience that it’s not only about having the button but optimizing its use with optimal styling and positioning.

For example, it must be big enough to be evident on the page between other content. Also, positioning it as the first payment option will motivate visitors to use it. 

Place the PayPal button – along with other payment options – at the bottom right of a page since this is where consumers expect them to be.
