      • PayPal Direct Payment API Gateway

All such information can be submitted here.

      Here, you would find 2 text-boxes in which you can submit the Payment Page content (in HTML).

If you are using the SuperSite, the Invoice Payment Page content displayed to your Customers during the purchase flow needs to be customized separately.
