What is the Payouts API and how do I enable it on my account?
The Payouts API is a fast, convenient way to send commissions, rebates, rewards, and general disbursements. Use the Payouts API to make PayPal payments to multiple PayPal accounts in a single API call. You can specify the recipients by using their PayPal email addresses, phone numbers, or encrypted PayPal account numbers.
Payouts appear as Mass Payments in the sender's PayPal account and are provided along with the Mass Payment reports. To use the Payouts API, request access through My Account. Alternatively, contact your PayPal Account Manager or PayPal Customer Support. You must have a PayPal business account.
