PayPal Integration with Websphere Commerce 7

Hi Readers,

Please follow the below link to learn more about PayPal Checkout Express flow and its integration in WebSphere Commerce 7 -


There are some steps missing in the above tutorial. In addition to the steps in the tutorial, please run a ACPLOAD for the "PayPal"

The ACPolicy file contents can be found here -

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" standalone="no" ?>
<!DOCTYPE Policies SYSTEM "../dtd/accesscontrolpolicies.dtd">

 <Action Name="PayPal"
 <ActionGroup Name="AllSiteUsersViews"
  <ActionGroupAction Name="PayPal"/>

For more information on the ACPLOAD, click acpload utility

The Paypal Sandbox environment seems to be having troubles , whenever it redirects to PayPal - I am being asked to login. On clicking on the link , it redirects me to "developer.paypal.com" instead of "sandbox.paypal.com". Since it redirects to the developer site , I login with my developer account and then with the personal account credentials. Now , to place orders - i need to click the back button to reach the "Order Summary" Page and then click on "Order".

Please comment if case you face the same issue or have a solution for the same!

    1. I had the same problem, the solution was to clean up all the projects after you import the paypal example project, add the new project to WC and finally re-publish WC.
