What is the PayPal Commerce Platform?
The PayPal Commerce Platform, formerly known as PayPal for Partners, is a comprehensive payments solution for marketplaces, crowdfunding platforms, and other environments where people buy and sell goods and services or raise money. A marketplace allows buyers to purchase goods and services from multiple providers under the umbrella of a single partner. The solution is ideal if you run a multi-party commerce platform and want a flexible, end-to-end solution for processing payments.
The PayPal Commerce Platform supports a variety of common business types, including:
- Physical goods
- E-commerce hosting services, such as payment processing and shopping cart hosting
- Crowdfunding for personal projects or nonprofit ventures
- Maintaining a technology infrastructure
- Payment processing
- Fraud and risk management
- Customer protection
