PayPal Split Payments

Split the payment between the seller & the marketplace owner without waiting for confirmation

The PayPal Split Payments payment method transfers money to the seller & the marketplace owner instantly - without waiting for confirmation.

This method transfers all the responsibility to the seller and completely removes the need for involvement from the marketplace owner. The latter simply collects the commission fee.

This method is NOT recommended but may be useful if you do not have access to 'PayPal Commerce Platform'. Alternatively, you may use Stripe which is the preferred method of payment.

1. Credit card security:

When you sign up for a PayPal account, you type in the credit cards and bank accounts you wish to use for purchases one time on the PayPal secure system. Once that is accomplished, you never again have to disclose your credit card information online. By paying with PayPal, you keep your credit card information private, meaning that you can shop without worrying about a hacker downloading your account data from your online merchant.

2. Flexibility:

Relieve yourself of the embarrassment and hassle of trying to purchase goods and services online only to have your credit card declined. Because you can set up multiple bank accounts, debit cards, and credit cards to fund your PayPal account, you can rest assured that your PayPal purchases always go through the first time. PayPal will then look for funds from your sources based on the order you define.

3. Cost:

One of the best reasons for using PayPal is its cost: free. That’s right. No annual membership fees, no processing fees, no service charges. Shoppers using PayPal get all the powerful advantages associated with the service and do not have to pay one dime.
