Setting Up Payment Providers (PayPal)

Clubs & Events allows you to charge for bookings. In order to accept payment where this is the case you need to set up at least one Payment Provider. This article shows you how to do this.

Setting up a Payment Provider

Log into your system as an Administrator and click Settings on the coloured bar at the left hand side of the screen.

and then select Payment Settings in the list that appears.

This will load the available Payment Provider options (at the moment this is limited to PayPal, but more will be added in due course). Click the Enable box to begin the process of setting up your chosen provider.


  1. Go to the Settings page referred to above and click the Enable box for PayPalThen obtain your PayPal Client ID and Client Secret by following the steps below.
  2. Go to the PayPal website and log in to your school's PayPal Business account.
  3. Once logged in, click on Developer in the top right to load the Developer page: 
  4. Once on the developer page, go to your name at the top right and then select Dashboard. This will load the My Apps & Credentials page. Click Live and then Create App. On the Create New App page enter a name for the app - this can be anything, but for ease of identification we suggest you use "SchoolCloud" - then click Create App 
  5. Once the app has been created you can copy the Client ID & Secret (you will need to click Show to view the Secret) and paste them into the Settings page referred to in step 1 above.

Your system is now set up to use PayPal and when parents book a Club or Event which carries a charge, they will be able to use PayPal to pay you.
