Enabling Tickets Commerce
The first thing you’ll want to do is head over to Events Settings > Payments and toggle on the option to Enable Tickets Commerce. Once you do, you’ll see all of your Tickets Commerce options.
Next, click on the blue button to Connect Automatically with PayPal.
Connecting to PayPal
You’ll see a pop-up to log in to your PayPal account. Don’t worry if you don’t have one; you can also register for a PayPal account by following the prompts in the pop-up as well.
You can always refer back to your Payments tab to check your connection status to PayPal at any time.
Now that you’re connected to PayPal, you can begin to select your payment settings.
Enable Test Mode: This setting will allow you to test payments for your ticket sales. Test mode will be enabled by default.

Confirmation email sender address: This allows you to set the “from” email address that is used when purchase and ticket confirmations are sent to the user after a purchase. By default, it is set to the site email address in the WordPress settings.
