We are experiencing some technical issues with our AWS services and PayPal API’s.
We are working with PayPal to resolve this as quickly as possible. In the meantime, please consider one of the following options:
1. Configure Your Own PayPal App
You can create your own PayPal app through https://developer.paypal.com. Then you can enter your own Client ID and Secret into the PayPal Complete Payments settings.
2. Enable Classic Express Checkout
Classic Express Checkout is still available and will not have the problems that Complete Payments is having right now.
You can get to it through WooCommerce -> Settings -> Payments -> PayPal Classic Payment Gateway -> Express Checkout.
Just enter your live account API credentials and you’ll be good to go!
