Accept shared payments and group gifts


To help share expenses and give group gifts, a business must accept payments from multiple sources for a purchase. You might share expenses to divide a bill for a birthday lunch, split rent and other living expenses among housemates, or have multiple people pitch in on a wedding present.

Sample scenario

Share-It Inc., a website that enables people to share payments, wants to accept payments from multiple sources for group purchases.


If Share-It Inc. has customers without PayPal accounts, Share-It Inc. can help customers sign up for PayPal accounts for future use. For more information, see Use Adaptive Accounts to create a PayPal account.
