How do I enable PayPal for Marketplaces reference accounts?

Important: PayPal for Marketplaces is a limited-release solution at this time. It is available to select partners for approved use cases. For more information, reach out to your PayPal account manager or contact a PayPal Partner Expert.

When setting up merchants in a marketplace using the Managed path integration method, the marketplace partner must create a reference account for each merchant. The reference account is a general ledger entry used for money movement purposes, and is completely invisible to the merchant.

The marketplace partner creates reference accounts via calls to PayPal's Merchant Onboarding API.
