    I am unable to create a new app from the developer portal. I guess once this is created, I get the client_Id.

    Can you take a look. I have also submitted a bug:
    Question Reference #130725-000377

    Hope you can help. We would love to leverage the PayPal API on Android.

    Best Regards,

    I have one question related to “check the result”, let’s say, some system level exceptions(the network broken, the
    device power off, etc) just happen before onActivityResult() is invoked or just
    before PaymentConfirmation is saved, I have no idea about the transaction
    status when my app recovers from the exceptions, I mean I have no way to know
    whether the transaction was successful or not, I don’t have a paykey with which
    to query transaction status from PayPal‘s server.

    Are you using our SDK v2? The integration changed slightly: https://github.com/paypal/PayPal-Android-SDK/tree/master/SampleApp

    Did you start the Activity with startActivityForResult? See this code sample for explanation: https://github.com/paypal/PayPal-Android-SDK/blob/master/SampleApp/src/com/paypal/example/paypalandroidsdkexample/SampleActivity.java
