Marketplaces Connected Path enables you to partner with PayPal. Partnership provides protection and management of risks and losses.
With the Connected Path, responsibilities are distributed among partners and sellers:
Partners control the disbursement of funds.
Sellers are liable for risk loss associated with chargebacks and reversals, handle disputes, and collect funds from responsible parties. Sellers must have a PayPal account.
Onboard your sellers
- Upfront Onboarding
- You ask your sellers to connect with PayPal before buyers make PayPal payments through your marketplace. This method uses the PayPal API.
- URL Onboarding is a variation of Upfront onboarding that streamlines the onboarding process and does not use the PayPal API.
- You ask your sellers to connect with PayPal after buyers make PayPal payments through your marketplace.
