[Resolved] Paypal gateway – 2 accounts?

  • (I mistakingly posted this is the EDD Toolbar plugin forum)
    I will be selling items for $8.99 and $39.99 – that’s it. Those 2 prices. Paypal has 2 different pricing schemes. I just got off the phone with them and they told me in order to take advantage of the 2 payment schemes (regular for the $39.99 items and micropayments for the $8.99 items) I’ll have to use 2 different accounts.

    Is it possible to do this with EDD? Can I link more than one paypal account to EDD? Honestly, I’m thinking I should look into a different gateway for an all-in-one solution. This is unnecessarily complicating my life! Paypal… If you have any suggestions to throw in I’d appreciate that as well my friend. Thanks for your help!

    No, you can only use one PayPal account with EDD.

    Can you tell me which two payment methods you’re looking at through PayPal?

    Theres the regular method, which charges 2.9% + .30, and theres paypal micropayments, which charges 5% + .05. The regular method is preferred for items $11 and up. It saves sellers money. Micropayments was designed for under $11, such as .99 song downloads, etc.

    To add more confusion (to my brain), I now find paypal has something called digital dowoads (express checkout). Dude, they seriously are confusing. One ray of light is I see you have an extension for paypal express checkout.

    Anyway, my objective is to use paypal as my gateway, but have that flexible pricing. If I sell a $40item or a $9 item, Id like paypal to charge me the lesser expense. I thought they did it automatically (I remember reading that somewhere) but one of their operators on the phone yesterday said they dont do that. Maybe the lady was wrong. Any clarity you can give would help! THANKS AGAIN.

    Yes indeed, they are extremely confusing.

    As far as I know, that’s not possible except by having two accounts, but EDD does not support that, sorry.
