PayPal: Obtain a PayPal API Signature
ShipWorks connects directly to your PayPal account. With one click, or on an automated schedule, your orders are downloaded from PayPal. As soon as you process a shipment, ShipWorks communicates the updated order status, shipping method and tracking information back to PayPal.
You can also connect to your PayPal account in conjunction with your eBay store when eBay is added to ShipWorks.
