Paypal Settings

PayPal is a worldwide real-time payment solution. It is one of the major payment networks used for online shopping on eCommerce sites.

To use PayPal in your shop, you must have a PayPal account.

GoodBarber doesn't take any transaction fees on your sales, but PayPal invoices you directly for the use of its payment solution according to a fee schedule that depends on the characteristics of your PayPal account and the volume of sales via PayPal in your shop.
For details of Paypal's pricing, visit https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-fees

GoodBarber has chosen to integrate PayPal among the available payment gateways because it is a robust, secure and very easy to add to your shop.
