Adding a payment provider

Adding PayPal

  1. Log into your account

  5. Enter your PayPal email address twice to confirm the correct email is added

Once you click it, you will be logged out of all sessions automatically and need to log back into your partner account, where you will get a message if the PayPal email was saved successfully.

If you do not click the link within 3 hours, you will need to re-enter the PayPal email and trigger a new email to be sent.

If the PayPal verification link is loading to a blank page, please ensure that your browser allows 3rd party cookies and try again.
