You can find the PayPal Payments Pro Checkout specific settings under the “Gateway Settings” tab when you go to the payment gateway bundle plugin’s settings menu. The following screenshot shows how you can access the settings page of this plugin:
In order to complete the PayPal Payments Pro settings simply follow the steps outlined below:
Step 1: Check the “Use PayPal Payments Pro Gateway” checkbox from the “PayPal Payments Pro Settings” section of the plugin.

- Click Request API Credentials (under the Account Information section)
