WooCommerce issue fix

Although we don't specialize in WordPress development, sometimes we receive the support requests for WP.

For those who have troubles with this error in WooCommerce:

> PayPal error (2): An error (2) occurred while processing your PayPal payment. Please contact the store owner for assistance.

1. You should have PayPal Checkout enabled on your "Payments" tab in WooCommerce config:


2. In PayPal Checkout settings you should see "Payment Email" field in "API Credentials" section - you should put your PayPal email address there:


If you follow these instructions it should work, at least it worked for us.
