How to Get PayPal Client ID and Secret Key?

Knowband Guide: Obtain PayPal Client ID and Secret Key

In order to integrate Express Checkout with the REST API, a PayPal client ID that authenticates a merchant’s account with PayPal is necessary. A client ID can only be created by the account holder.

Ask the merchant to share their client ID with you if you’re a developer integrating Express Checkout on the client’s behalf. If the merchant hasn’t already done so, they must create a client ID.

Steps to find the PayPal ID and PayPal Client Secret Key:
