PayPal is a payment system that allows payments through credit or debit cards, PayPal balances, or credit. When you create a SHOPLINE store, you are able to authorise your PayPal account in one click.
If you do not have a PayPal account yet, you can create a PayPal account to accept online payments immediately from any incoming transaction.
When authorising, you can specify another PayPal account to receive payments if you already have a different one.
To use PayPal in your store, you need a Business PayPal account. Most functions and tools provided by PayPal for business owners are only available on business accounts.
Third-party payment provider commission fees:
|For third-party payment providers, SHOPLINE will charge a small, nominal commission in addition to the transaction fees.
Once you have connected PayPal to your SHOPLINE store, you will be charged a transaction fee of 3.9% + a fixed fee of SGD$0.50 as well as a commission fee for all payments processed through the platform.
|For example, if you are on the Essential plan and a customer makes a $100 payment, the fees will be calculated as $3.90 + SGD$0.50 for the transaction fee and $0.80 for the commission fee, for a total of $5.20.
