How to get a Paypal Signature for API NVP access

(This information is taken from Paypal's Site - Their URLS change constantly, so it is reproduced here:

Obtaining API Credentials
To use the PayPal? API, you must have API credentials that identify you as a PayPal? Business account holder who is authorized to perform various API operations. Although you can use either an API signature or a certificate for credentials, PayPal? recommends you use a signature.

IMPORTANT:Although you can have both a signature and certificate, you cannot use both at the same time.

Creating an API Signature
An API signature consists of an API username along with an associated API password and signature, all of which are assigned by PayPal?. You need to include this information whenever you execute a PayPal? API operation.

You must have a PayPal? Business account to create a signature.

To create an API signature:

  • Log into PayPal?, then click Profile under My Account.
  • Click API Access.
  • Click Request API Credentials.
  • Check Request API signature and click Agree and Submit.
