PayPal offers a secure commerce Identity API that lets your customers sign in to your web site using their PayPal credentials. Signing in with PayPal is quick (just a User Id and Password) and most often, transactions are secured with verified PayPal accounts.
PayPal Identity frees you from the need to implement a customer-management system. The Identity API manages and verifies your customer account data for you. This lets you focus on the important details of your business website, your business transactions.
