How it works

This add-on has two system for receiving payment from customer and send to the admin and sellers. One is Chained and another is Parallel Payment.

Chained Payment

In this system, one account is the primary receiver and others are secondary receiver. In Dokan powered marketplaces, the admin is the primary receiver and the sellers are secondary receiver. So the admin will receive the commission in his account and the rest is sent to the respective sellers according to their product prices.

If a customer files a dispute in PayPal asking a refund, then the primary receiver is liable for that. So even if the admin did not take the money for the product, he will have to handle this case; and if he loses the dispute then the amount asked will be deducted from the admins account. So the seller is not involved here.

Parallel Payment

This is the most used system by our users. In this system, there is not primary user, or you can call everyone a primary receiver. Because each one receives their payment separately and has direct connection to the customer. So the customer can directly ask for a refund or file a dispute against the seller specifically from whom he bought the faulty product.

So the admin does not have to go through the dispute process and it will save his time. And it will also lower the chances of financial loss. You can read more about the adaptive payment system for marketplaces in PayPal's official site.

To use PayPal Adaptive Payments you must have a PayPal Premier or PayPal Business account and you must get approved to use PayPal’s Adaptive Payments API.
