When I activate paypal express checkout in my shopify store, I can log in to paypal normally, and I can also go to the paypal authorization page.
Then when I click "Agree and Connect", I always get an "ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS" error, the webpage cannot be opened, and the activation is not successful. I tried deleting the cookie and browsing history, and then I tried again, but still couldn't activate it. Please help me, I promise that the customer will release a new product later today, but the issue of payment has not been resolved. thank you very much.
I have a similar issue.
I am unable to activate the Paypal account. In my shopify store there is no DEACTIVATE button when I go to Settings > Payment providers.
There is only a 'Activate PayPal Express Checkout' button and when it is clicked on it takes to the Paypal account. I also tried using a different browser. My Paypal account is fully set up and the email id for the logic is also the same. My Paypal account is a business account and i have received confirmation from Paypal that i can receive money in the account in both INR and USD.
I had similar problems connecting some time back, but managed to somehow get it done:)
When you press the link "Activate PayPal Express Checkout" it takes you through a series of steps before you are asked to
"Complete Your Setup Now"
At this point, there is a smaller link below "Return to Shopify" click on that. It will take you back to Shopify and the connection
would have been done.
In case if you still have an issue check within Paypal for an error caused by earlier attempts. Let me know how it goes:)
