WHAT IS ‘PayPal PLUS’?
PayPal Plus is a WarriorPlus feature that allows vendors to make sales and affiliates to collect commissions easier and more securely than ever before.
There are a few important things to know about how to set this up and how it all works, so please read the Setup Instructions and Why Use PayPal Plus sections below for full details...
VENDOR SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
1) Go to your 'Merchant Accounts' settings and add your PayPal account as a 'PayPal Plus' account.
2) Once added, you can go into any of your Products and choose this new account in the 'Payment Methods' section. (If you select both a 'PayPal Plus' and 'PayPal' account (which is fine), the PayPal Plus account will be used.)
3) Now sales of any of the Products you modified in Step 2 above will start using the new PayPal Plus checkout experience.
That's pretty much it - it's pretty simple and now you are using the latest and greatest in PayPal and WarriorPlus technology.
TIP: If you want a shortcut method to add PayPal Plus to ALL of your eligible products at once, you can do this directly from the Merchant Accounts page by clicking the menu to the right of the PayPal Plus account you setup, and clicking 'Add to All'. Just follow the instructions from there, and now PayPal Plus will be used for all of your products!
AFFILIATE SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
As an Affiliate (or Partner), there is nothing you need to do to setup PayPal Plus for receiving commissions, since all commissions from PayPal Plus sales will go into your WarriorPlus Wallet.
However, if you would like ALL commissions to go to your WarriorPlus Wallet - even when the Vendor is NOT using PayPal Plus - you can visit the "Settings" tab on your Merchant Accounts page and turn on that option.
WHY USE PayPal PLUS?
Here are just a few reasons to make the switch in your account:
#1 - PayPal Plus uses the latest PayPal technologies for online marketplaces like ours. They have basically stopped supporting the "old" way (Adaptive Payments), and we want to make sure our users have the best possible experience.
#2 - For Vendors, PayPal Plus only sends your portion of sale earnings to your PayPal account. It does NOT send the full sale price, and then immediately send out commissions to the platform, affiliates, partners, etc... What you earn as a Vendor goes to you, and everything else goes into the WarriorPlus Wallet of any affiliates and partners involved in the sale.
This makes things MUCH simpler for vendors (and everyone else too), and solves LOTS of issues that exist with the old 'Adaptive Payments' system. (ie refund issues, complicated accounting, more risk department scrutiny, etc...)
#3 - For Affiliates, NEVER worry about getting paid again. With PayPal Plus and the WarriorPlus Wallet, your funds are always secure immediately after a sale is made. This is because your funds come directly into the WarriorPlus account, and are paid to you by us. There is no way for a Vendor to hold your funds, "forget" to release them, etc...
Plus, you receive your commissions in "bulk", not just one at time - and you can receive them via any method you like, no matter how the sale was processed.
#4 - Checkout process is MUCH more modern, faster and reliable. PayPal has been updating their checkout process to be mobile friendly and higher converting for years, but since they stopped working on Adaptive Payments, they did not add these new processes there. Now you get a MUCH faster and more reliable checkout process.
#5 - Buyers can setup and pay with PayPal Credit, when applicable. Again, this is not possible with the old 'Adaptive Payments' method since they don't update it anymore.
#6 - Recurring payments are MUCH more reliable with PayPal Plus. Again, this is a result of not using the old 'Adaptive Payments' technology that is known to fail often on recurring payments due to the way its setup and poorly worded for buyers.
PLUS, we make your recurring payments "portable" between PayPal (or Stripe) accounts. So, if you need to change which PayPal account your recurring payments go to, this is no problem. No need for buyers to come back and "re-authorize" anything.
#7 - "One click buying" - both on upsells and the front-end! We also offer this with our existing PayPal (and Stripe) integrations, but since the way it works with PayPal Plus is more streamlined, it will be even better.
How does it work? If a buyer has added a PayPal account or Credit Card (via Stripe) to their WarriorPlus account (or even as a guest during a previous checkout process), these accounts can then be used for purchases of ANY other WarriorPlus Product (NOT just from the same Vendor). This works great for upsells, of course, but also works great on the front-end when the buyer already has the payment method available. No need for them to login to PayPal again, or enter their Credit Card details again, etc...
#8 - Indian PayPal account holders can sell as a Vendor - For awhile, due to how the old Adaptive Payments works and banking laws in some countries (like India), some of our users couldn't sell their products. With PayPal Plus, this restriction no longer exists.
If you have any questions, as always, ask away and/or send us a support chat request and we'll answer as quickly as possible.
