Hi,
I am very new to Aimeos and therefore I'd like to apologize in advance for stupid questions.
I have tried my best to find an answer on my own, but the documentation leaves as many questions unanswered as it answers.

I am running Aimeos Web Shop 17.7.2 on a typo3 8.7.8 with PHP 7.0.20.

My problem is:
I don't understand, how the implementation of payment services works.
In the backend of the shop, there is a paypal-service. But when I try to make an order, i get the errormessage
Class "\Aimeos\MShop\Service\Provider\Payment\Paypal" not available
I guess that is, because I just left the entry as is was without any paypal-connection.

I have installed the extension aimeos_pay, which didn't change anything.

Is there any how-to or tutorial, how to configure a shop step by step?

Best regards and thanks for an answer

We would love to add more documentation for first time users. Unfortunately, we are too deep into the project to know what would help them. Therefore, we are always open for contributions, especially from first time users. If you found a solution and missed that in the docs, please write a short article about that and we will happily add it to the Wiki :-)

There's no payment provider named "Paypal". Instead, it's called "PayPalExpress". Did you maybe changed that by accident?

Thank you for your answer.

I decided to let you do that job.
A 2-hours-contract looked very fair and that way I am sure, that it is, as it should be.
The order is already placed.

For a first time user, a simple walkthrough would be a good start.
Unfortunately I can not provide it, as I obviously don't know, what to do ;)

Best regards
Christian
