The entry level for the Programme is “Member”. You will have the possibility of referring business to PayPal and gain credentials to become a “Gold” partner.
If you are a Solutions Partner, you will just need to integrate a unique tracking code, called a BN code. PayPal will provide you with one, once you are logged in to the platform. You must integrate this code in your solution. Then, all the merchants referred by you will be automatically assigned to your account.
If you are a web agency or development partner, you will refer merchants thought a unique referral link created for each of your clients through the platform. Any clients who complete the referral process will be automatically attached to your account.
This process will allow you gain credentials and become a Gold partner.
As a Gold Partner, you will enjoy the extra benefit of being part of the PayPal Directory listing. This is a privileged spot where you can showcase your business and attract merchants around the world.
