My name is Rae, and I work for Shopify.
I appreciate you posting this question. It sounds like you're getting stuck in a loop, and I'd really like to lend a hand with this.
When trying to activate PayPal, are you using the same email address on PayPal that you use on your store owner's account on Shopify's end? If not, please try using this email address, as this should help resolve things.
If you're still not able to connect your PayPal account though, I recommend following these steps:
If this doesn't resolve things on your end, please just reply back to me here with more details on which step didn't work, and where the loop occurred.
Keep me posted on this!
Thank you for joining this thread and letting me know.
To clarify, did you use the same email address to log in to PayPal that you use on your store owner's account on Shopify?
Can you also please confirm where the loop is occurring, or which specific step that I shared in my previous reply isn't working on your end?
Once I have these details, I can help pinpoint where the issue may be coming from, and continue working towards a resolution.
I appreciate you both following up on this, and trying out the steps I shared in my previous reply.
