I'm a developer and want to create a crowdfunding campaign platform, where do I get started?

Here's how you can create a crowdfunding campaign platform:
  1. Sign up for PayPal Developer to innovate, test, and go live. 
  2. Accept the PayPal Developer Agreement.
  3. Create an Adaptive Payments application. This is the PayPal product that supports crowdfunding models. To use Adaptive Payments, your PayPal Business Account must be in good standing.
  4. Go to PayPal applications to create the application submission and be sure to include as much detail as possible; including information on the APIs you will be using.
