How do I register my marketplace?

Important: PayPal for Marketplaces is a limited-release solution at this time. It is available to select partners for approved use cases. For more information, reach out to your PayPal account manager or contact a PayPal Partner Expert.

If you're using PayPal for Marketplaces, you must register your marketplace with PayPal. To do so, begin by creating a PayPal app to obtain the required access token. Here’s how: 
  1. Log in to PayPal Developer.
  2. Click the My Apps & Credentials link.
  3. Click Create App in the REST API section.
  4. Enter an App Name and then choose the Sandbox account email that the app will be attached to.
  5. Click Create App.
  6. Review and if necessary edit the app details.
  7. Click Save.

Here's how to get the access token:
  1. Make a /token< call with your app’s OAuth client_id and secret keys for the basic authentication values. In the request body, set grant_type to client_credentials.
  2. Run the command. PayPal generates and returns an access token.

Sample access token request
curl –v \  
 -H "Accept: application/json" \  
 -H "Accept-Language: en_US" \  
 -u "EOJ2S-Z60oN_le_KS1d75wsZ6y0SFdVsY9183IvxFyZp:EC1usMEUk8e9ihI7ZdXLF5cz6y0SFdVsY9183IvxFyZ p"  
 -d "grant type=client_credentials"
