The PayPal payment method enables your customers to pay with added safety, with a payment service provider they are familiar with which often gives the customer an added feeling of security (especially for those who are shopping with you for the first time and do not yet know you as a retailer). In terms of functionality, PayPal corresponds to a purchase with a credit card because the customer's PayPal account is always settled using the customer's credit card. You may find information for testing here.
We pass on all PayPal fees to you with no surcharge. If you already have a PayPal account, the conditions agreed will be retained when you switch to payever.

How to install PayPal in your payever account
Open the Checkout app. Select the Payment Options tab and click +Add.
From the list that now appears, select PayPal and click on install. In the window that now opens, click on Connect.
You will now be forwarded to PayPal where you can either create a PayPal account or log in with your existing merchant account (Please note that you may not use a private PayPal account - as it needs to be a merchant account). Now follow the instructions and provide the required information. At the end of the process you will be redirected back to payever.
After returning to payever, make a few changes in setting and finally click Save.
Who covers fees? Here you can choose whether the merchant or the customer should pay the PayPal fee. You can pass the fee on to the customer, but please note that in many countries it is a requirement to offer at least one free payment method - i.e. if you choose to have the customer cover the PayPal fee you may need to offer e.g. direct debit free of charge.
Do redirect to the shop after success or failure. With this setting enabled you ensure that your customer does not remain on the PayPal website after the payment has been completed, but is rather redirected back to the shop. We recommend that you have this option ticked.
Payment action. Here you determine when your payment should be authorized and captured. Authorization means that PayPal reserves the amount from the customer's credit card, and capture is the action of actually withdrawing the money from the customer. Both can be done directly one one another, but also separate from each other, depending on which option you select here:
Sale = Automatic capture of the entire authorized order amount immediately after the checkout has been completed. If you have no special requirements we recommend this method, since you don't need to manually handle the order and you can't forget to capture the payment.
Authorization = Manual capture of the entire order amount at any time (but a maximum of 72 hours) after the customer has successfully completed the payment. Please note that you have to change the status of the payment accordingly in your shop system otherwise the money will not be collected from the customer.
Order = One or more manually triggered authorizations per order within 29 days of receipt of the order, the amount of each authorization is reserved on the customer's account for 3 days and can be collected by manual capture within this time. Here too, as with the authorization option, you have to manually capture the payment, but you can split the order into several parts and collect each part individually.
How to activate PayPal in your payever account
You can activate or deactivate the payment method in your payever account at any time. If the toggle switch is green then the related payment method is activated. If you deactivate the payment methods by clicking the toggle switch, they will automatically disappear from your shop without you having to configure this in your shops backend (of course, this also works the other way around - when activating a payment method).
