How to set up Paypal to pay your vendors?

As a marketplace operator (Seller) one way of paying your vendors is via Paypal. 

Note: For you to pay your vendor via Paypal it is important that both you and your vendors have Paypal account connected.

  • You need to enable "Payout" as an option (explained later).
  • You will need to submit your "Live" App for approval to PayPal, which can take up to 7-10 days (explained later). Note you can run the whole process on a Sandbox app for testing purposes.
