Accept Payments Right from the Business Launch

Are you a young startup or launching a new business project? Figuring out how to process online payments from clients in a way that is quick, legal, secure and painless is one of the most important operational problems you will need to solve from the very beginning.

If you are launching a new project it is critical to test your hypothesis first.

A PayPal merchant account makes it fast and easy for businesses just getting started, as well as those that are more established, to accept and process credit card payments and debit card payments.

PayPal payment gateway is integrated into the Scrile Connect platform and can be used for accepting payments from customers on the basic configuration.

Here is a simple step-by-step guide on how to quickly get a merchant account with PayPal.

How to Get a PayPal Merchant Account

  • If you don’t have a PayPal merchant account
  1. Open Payment Solutions for Small to Medium Businesses | PayPal US 

2. Click Contact Sales

3. Fill in the form with your personal and business information. You should prepare the following information for PayPal:

  • Work email
  • Company website
  • Company name
  • Estimated annual sales

We recommend that you should not tell PayPal about your business idea in detail if it is connected with the adult industry and explicit or even light explicit content. If your project will be seen as a purely adult business, you might be rejected by PayPal.

Open Admin → Settings → Payment Systems → PayPal → edit

Integrate your PayPal merchant account into your Scrile Connect platform

Enter your PayPal:
