Re: How to Integrate marketplace api

It will do that for you when it's ready, but unfortunately it's closed to a small set of beta testers right now, and the information I've been given is that there will be quite a few changes prior to its launch.

 

Right now you could use Express Checkout with Billing Agreements and Reference Transactions.  So the teachers would setup a billing agreement with you (the site).  You would use Express Checkout with your own API credentials, and you would specify the SELLERPAYPALACCOUNTID parameter in the API request to send the original student payment directly to the teacher's account.  Then you would use the billing agreement you have on file with the teacher to pull the commission you are due.  

 

You could do that as part of the checkout flow, or you could keep a running balance and pull your commissions when they reach a particular amount, which would help keep the fees lower.

Hi

thanks for kind response. i don't think so it is suitable for my requirement.when do i exeprt use adaptive and marketplace api

Re: How to Integrate marketplace api

Why would it not be suitable? What I described is he same thing as an Adaptive Chained Payment.

If you would prefer Parallel Payments then Express Checkout can do that without the need for any billing agreements.

Re: How to Integrate marketplace api

Yes, I explained that exact flow in my original response about this.  If you need help with the development you can contact me directly to discuss.

Thanks Angelleye for this Billing agreement and reference transaction. Does this implement has rich feature in UI (screenshot below) unlike Classic adaptive payments.

Yes, what you're seeing in that screenshot is actually Express Checkout. The Adaptive checkout flow was very limited and not a great experience in general. Express Checkout is much better.
