PayPal integration instructions incorrect

On https://scoutbook.scouting.org/mobile/dashboard/admin/editunit.asp?UnitID=xxxxx, when you click the question mark next to Paypal Client ID, you get this:

These need to be corrected. What I see offhand:

  • User should be directed to developer.paypal.com, not paypal.com.
  • Before creating an app, must flip a toggle to create a live app. Without that, user will only create a sandbox app.
  • PayPal Access Key field in Scoutbook likely refers to PayPal’s Secret field. This needs clarification.
  • First step is a run-on sentence.

There may be more I am missing. I am not integrating this right now with the intent of starting to take transactions, so I can’t firmly validate the above.
