Some countries do not allow marketplace owners to hold the payments, thus the amount paid by the customer has to be directly sent to the vendors to their account. With WCFM Direct Paypal plugin the amount that the customer pays will split immediately and be distributed between admin and vendors based on the commission percentage configured in your site.
In this article we will read about the setup and configuration of Paypal Marketplace plugin and show configuration in Paypal sandbox account required for initial testing purpose in your marketplace site.
NOTE: PayPal Marketplace API for split payment will only work for following countries as of now –
- United Kingdom
- United States
For other countries, the split payment is not supported by PayPal and they will need to use older version of plugin. Get older version of the addon from here.
