EDIT: Just realized it is the wrong part of the Forum but I can neither delete it nor move it. Hope you can still help me:
I am building a market place where users (buyers) buy from other users (sellers). If a seller offers PayPal as a payment option, I want to include a checkout button where the buyer directly pays the seller using PayPal via a link like:
Within the parameters of this url would be the seller's PayPal address (parameter 'business') along other necessary parameters.
So the payment would go directly to the seller rather than funneling it through my own account and then sending it to the seller which would result in unnecessary fees because of the second transaction.
My question is: Paypal's developer guide says that you need a PayPal business account in order to have a payment button. But I see on pages like discogs.com that they do it exactly the way I want to do it. Do all of their users have PayPal business accounts (which I doubt) or am I reading the developer's guide of PayPal wrong?
