As an Administrator
As an administrator, you can connect your PayPal account from Admin -> Payments. Just Key in your PayPal account email address and tap the “Connect PayPal account” tab. You will then be navigated to PayPal where you need to log in and give Sharetribe permission to make payment operations on your behalf.
As a Seller
As a seller, you can connect your PayPal account by tapping your name from the top bar -> Settings -> Payments.
Sellers and Administrators need a PayPal business account. This is needed in order to process credit card payments from non-PayPal users. In case you do not have a business account, you can upgrade your existing account or create a new PayPal Business account which is quick and free of charge with no additional costs involved.

To use these extensions, sellers are to open the extension tray in Messenger, choose PayPal and create a simple invoice by filling out details like item name, description, price and quantity. This invoice can also include a photo.
As buyers get the invoice, all they have to do is tap “Pay With PayPal” to complete the transaction. Just like other PayPal transactions, those taking place over Messenger are protected by PayPal Purchase Protection for Buyers.
