A chained/split/adaptive payment is a paymentfrom a sender that is indirectly split among multiple receivers. It is an extension of a typical payment from a sender to a receiver (administrator of the store), in which a receiver, known as the primary receiver, indirectly passes part of the payment to other receivers, who are called secondary receivers. A chained payment is a paymentfrom a sender that is indirectly split among multiple receivers.
In StoreHippo, you can setup the chained or split payment flow through Paypal Adaptive. The primary receiver of the PayPal in this flow is the store's admin and the secondary receivers are the sellers of the store.
After adding the credentials of the Paypal Adaptive under Payment Methods section of the StoreHippo Admin Panel, please follow the following steps to complete the setup of the adaptive/split payment:
Add seller ledger rule(s) for all the sellers of the store under Sellers > Seller Ledger Rules section. 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.
Mention the primary receiver's (admin) PayPal email address under Settings > MISC section.
Mention the secondary receivers' (sellers) Paypal's email addresses under Sellers >Seller Payout Methods section.
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.
