To be able to sell on hobbyDB you have to onboard with PayPal (basically given us the permission to have buyers pay you through the hobbyDB Check-Out).
And here Step-by-Step Instructions -
You can find the new Connect to PayPal button in the Seller Dashboard (go to Selling > Dashboard).
The button looks like this -
It will open a secure PayPal popup that will allow you to connect your PayPal account with hobbyDB. When finished you should see this screen -
Once you do close the popup and refresh the Seller Dashboard using the browser's refresh button -
If it worked you should see a success message and the green tickbox -
and the new Message below the button reads "You are now connected and all set for the roll-out of our new Checkout!"
Here are a typical problem -
- Your email is not confirmed with PayPal Account (here is PayPal's help page on how to confirm your email address. Other problems could be that.
- You use a different PayPal email address for onboarding than you added to your hobbyDB account (you can check that one here)
- You did not go through the complete onboarding (please see the video above)
- You revoked the permissions for hobbyDB in your PayPal account
If none of these resolve your problem please contact PayPal's Merchant Technical Support (we can unfortunately not help with these).
