Collecting Payments

Please note that your site must be public before you can collect payments. You are able to create and add buttons but you will not be able to collect payments on a private site.

When a visitor to your site clicks the pay with PayPal button on any of your Simple Payment buttons, a new window will open that will take them through the PayPal checkout. They will have the option to pay you from their PayPal account using PayPal funds or a credit card. If they are logged into PayPal and have access to PayPal Credit as a payment method they’ll also see the PayPal Credit button.

If you have a Business PayPal account, they will have the option to simply use a credit or debit card to complete the purchase without having a PayPal account.

All payments are credited to the PayPal account linked to the email address used in the button. For every purchase PayPal will send a confirmation email with the purchaser’s information to this email address. The purchaser will also receive an email from PayPal as a receipt for the purchase.

If the email you use is not linked to an existing PayPal account, you will receive an email from PayPal with information about claiming any collected payments. This email is sent after you collect your first payment. Be sure to check that PayPal supports collecting online payments in your region. You will need Business Account support which you can determine for your country by following PayPal’s online support.

WordPress.com will also send an email for each purchase. This email will be sent to the user’s email who created the button. You can also expect a monthly report for all your Simple Payment buttons. This email is sent to the site plan owner.
