PayPal Here Endpoint
This endpoint value is where the plugin web app will run on your site.  This can be loaded from any web browser (desktop and mobile) directly, or you can use the QR codes provided in the settings page or WooCommerce order screen to load the web app at this endpoint.

Example:  By default, this value is set to “paypal-here”.  As such, the web app will load at
