In the recent past, I had a Node enveloper create me a website and customize the javascript to enable site visitors to purchase monthly subscriptions for a service I offered. This "handshake" with PayPal required me to configure the service on PayPal. But now I have a WordPress site using WooCommerce, and my products are more conventional.

I sell a:
1) book
2) book as PDF
3) a deck of cards

Do I need to configure PayPal for these products? I suspect that regarding the Node site, since the user could select to make the service repeat monthly, I needed to manage this service through PayPal. And I right?

My WordPress developer says the sandbox sales worked, but I never shared the root password for PayPal. This makes sense to me if selling a book does not require that book to be listed in PayPal.

Please tell me your thoughts.

Thanks

With WooCommerce you can either use the built in PayPal Standard, or you could use something like PayPal for WooCommerce, which is what I would recommend.

You just configure the PayPal settings to use your account, which if using the PayPal for WooCommerce plugin would consist of entering your API credentials and you're ready to rock.

With PayPal standard you just enter your PayPal account email, and also your API credentials for handling refunds.

The WooCommerce system and plugins would handle the rest for you.
