PayPal Commerce

PayPal Commerce allows Purposemart to offer credit card payments via Stripe and automatically distribute money from orders between sellers.

Unlike Paypal express, PayPal Commerce automatically manages fund distributions and payouts.  It’s an alternative to Stripe Connect.

How it Works #

  1. A Buyer adds a few products from different vendors to his cart.
  2. On the checkout page, the buyer chooses the PayPal Commerce Platform payment method.
  3. When the buyer clicks one of the buttons, he goes to the PayPal checkout page, where he pays for his order.
  4. PayPal automatically splits all the money between the marketplace and the sellers whose products were purchased. 

How to Connect Your PayPal Account #

Sellers connect their PayPal accounts to receive automatic payments. If a buyer adds products from multiple sellers to her cart, and all of these sellers have their PayPal accounts connected to the marketplace, then this payment method will be offered to the customer. If not, an alternative payment method would be offered ( such as Paypal Express or Stripe Connect) 

Here is an instruction for vendors on how to connect their PayPal accounts:

  1. Open the Sellers → Sellers page.
  2. Click on the vendor’s name to open his settings.
  3. Go to the PayPal tab.
  4. Click Connect with PayPal.
  5. You’ll be taken to the PayPal website. Follow the instructions there to connect your account to the marketplace. This will allow you to receive money from orders to your PayPal account without the need to request its withdrawal from the marketplace owner.
  6. After you have done everything on PayPal’s side, you will be redirected back to your store.
  7. Click the Save button.
