The main difference between Paypal's Orders API and Payments API is their functionality.

Orders API allows merchants to create, manage, and update orders. It provides features such as authorization, capturing, and refunding of payments. Orders API simplifies the checkout process by creating orders and collecting payment information, without the need for the user to log in to their PayPal account.

Payments API allows merchants to process payments for goods and services using credit or debit cards, PayPal balance, or other payment methods. It provides functionality for authorizing, capturing, voiding, and refunding payments. Payments API can be used for single payments or recurring payments, and can also handle disputes and chargebacks.

For improved documentation on these APIs, you can visit the PayPal Developer Portal. It provides detailed documentation, sample code, and guides to help you integrate PayPal into your application. Additionally, the PayPal Community Forum is a great resource to find answers to common questions and connect with other developers.
