By default, the money is paid to the application owner in their own account, and this account receiving funds is known as the payee or receiver.

To specify a different receiver when you create an order, add the payee object to the transaction payload and include the email_address or merchant_id of the account to receive the payment.

createOrder: function(data, actions) {
  return actions.order.create({
    intent: 'CAPTURE',
    purchase_units: [{
      amount: {
        currency_code: 'USD',
        value: '220.00'
      },
      payee: {
        email_address: 'receiveraccount@emaildomain.com'
      }
    }]
  });
},
