REST API and Partners

We're currently using PayFlow Pro API to accept payments on behalf of Partners with funds going directly to Partner accounts (authenticated with User/Vendor/Partner/Pwd data). When I looked into PayPal REST API years ago, I believe I saw that there was no way for funds to go to Partner accounts as opposed to the account which is used to generate the API keys. Is this still the case (that the REST API can not be used to send funds to Partner accounts).

 

Thanks!

Re: REST API and Partners

The Rest API product that will allow funds to go to a Partner Account is PayPal For Marketplaces:

Here is the information on the two different paths:

Our PayPal for Marketplaces solution has two integration paths to choose from based on how you run your business:

  • Connected path. A marketplace model in which each individual PayPal merchant assumes financial liability, rather than you, the partner. All merchants must have PayPal Business accounts.

  • Managed path. A marketplace model in which the partner assumes financial liability. Merchants aren't required to have PayPal Business accounts.

PayPal For Marketplaces is also the replacement for Adaptive Payments.

 

Thank you,

Jennifer
