How to sell with a Seller Profile?

Are there any fees for Seller Profiles transactions?

Yes, we charge Seller Profiles transactions the same fee as any other Goods & Services transactions. For additional information on fees, refer to our site for more information.

How do I share my profile on social media?

You can share your link from your Profile Dashboard or the request page. Once you click the 'Share' icon, you'll be able to decide where and how you'd like to share your link.

If I'm already accepting payments for my business on my personal profile, what should I do now?

We recommend that you create a Seller Profile so you can take advantage of accepting secure payments in person and online. You’ll also benefit from low fees with our built-in protections, all without a website.

PayPal Seller Profiles are tailored for businesses whereas Personal Profiles are tailored to friends and family transactions. You can continue to use your Personal Profile for friends and family transactions. You can see both of your profiles on your Settings page and select which one you'd like to access.

How do I receive a tip when accepting payment through a Seller Profile?

Tipping isn’t available for Seller Profiles. However, the buyer can include a tip to the amount at the time of payment.

How can users search for my Seller Profile?
Users can go to PayPal app and either search by your Seller Profile username or by the name of your business.

How can I customize what users can see on my Seller Profile?
You can choose to show or hide your business phone number, email address, or location. These options are available in your Seller Profile Dashboard.

How does Seller Protection work?

PayPal Seller Protection covers you in the event of claims, chargebacks, or reversals that are a result of unauthorized purchases or items your buyer didn’t receive.

Visit How Seller Protection can help support your business for more details.

What is a PayPal dispute and how do I respond?

If buyers have a problem with a transaction, they can communicate with you by reporting the issue in our Resolution Center. Buyers can report if they didn't receive an item or if the item is significantly not as described.

Here's how to respond to your buyer in the Resolution Center on the PayPal website:

  1. Go to your Resolution Center
  2. Click View under "Action" next to your case. 
  3. Respond to the buyer and enter any relevant information (such as tracking information), and then click Send.
  • You have up to 180 days after the payment to report an issue.
  • You have 20 days from the date the issue is reported to resolve it with the other party.   
  • If you and your counterpart are unable to resolve the problem, either one of you can ask us to intervene by escalating.   
  • If the reported issue isn’t escalated within 20 days, it’s automatically closed. After that, it can’t be reopened or looked into.
  • When the 20-day deadline is approaching, we’ll remind you by email and in the Resolution Center.
