PayPal Adaptive Payments handles payments between the sender of a payment and one or more receivers of the payment. It’s possible to split the order total with secondary receivers, so you can pay commissions or partners.
To setup of the adaptive/split payment by PayPal Adaptive, please follow the below steps:
Add seller ledger rule(s) for all the sellers of the store. The commission amount configured in the ledger rules is the amount which will be kept as a share by the store's admin (primary receiver). Rest of the amount of the orders will split among the sellers.
Add seller payout methods by clicking on Add New button.
Select the Seller and Type as PayPal. Mention the secondary receivers' (sellers) Paypal's email addresses under Paypal Account Email field.
Hence now the order's amount will be shared among the primary (admin) and secondary (seller) receivers. The store's administrator will keep its share as configured under Seller Ledger Rules, and rest of the amount will be passed to the order's seller.
