Using same PayPal Pro account with 2 Shopify stores?

Hello,

I'm due to set up a 2nd Shopify store.

This is is part of the same business entity as the existing site.

I'm therefore intending to use the same PayPal Pro account for both.

Are there any issues with doing this? I wanted to check that duplicate invoice numbers etc. wouldn't cause problems with the payment interface?

Can anyone put my mind at rest?

Many thanks!

Simon

I've been doing this with no probelm. One PayPal Pro account can handle multiple accounts. To be safe, I gave each store a different numbering system for their order number in the Shopify preferences, though I don't know if that is required.

Same thing. I have a client that has 3 shops and they all use the same act, dif order numbers for sanity.

Thanks to you both for your feedback.

I'm probably missing something really obvious, but could you tell me where I would change the numbering system for the next store?

Many thanks,

Simon

Hi Simon, good questions you have!

It's on the Preferences pages. See screen grab below.

Jamie, do you know what your clients put there by any chance? They just added a digit?

Just a letter #A, #B etc. But you can even put the whole darn store name there if you really want to keep it bullet proof. StoreName-{{ number }}
