Accepting Payments with PayPal

In order to sell via your Pixieset Store, you will need to set up a Payment Gateway to receive funds from sale. You can choose between Stripe, PayPal, Offline Payments, or any combination of the three.

Integrating PayPal Express Checkout offers your clients a variety of payment options, including their own PayPal account, credit card or visa debit card. Your clients will be directed to PayPal to complete their payment.

You will need a PayPal business account (either a Pro or a Standard account) in order to successfully complete this setup. Funds from sale are deposited into your PayPal account immediately, and you can manage your proceeds within your PayPal account directly.
