It’s Daria from Ecwid Customer Care team.

You can see the instructions on how to set up PayPal in this article: You should have a registered PayPal merchant account which you will connect to your store to accept the payments.

I've checked your control panel and see that there is an order number 7 which has 'Awaiting Payment' status. You can see why it has this status in order details: go to control panel > My sales > Orders > click on order #7. In Additional Information section, you will see the transaction details. Here is what you can see in this case:

Pending reason returned by PayPal:
The payment is pending because it was made to an email address that is not yet registered or confirmed.
Looks like there is no PayPayl account registered for the email address which you specified in the settings of PayPal in your Ecwid control panel. Since there is no such account, the money will be returned to the customer automatically by PayPal. You can also see the most often reasons why the order gets 'Awaiting payment' status here:

If you have already sent the order, I would recommend you to contact the customer and explain the situation. They can send you the money for the order directly to your PayPal account. Remember to specify the correct email address in Settings > Payment > PayPal.

If you have any other questions, feel free to write back. We are always glad to help.
