“Since introducing PayPal, my business has experienced a notable increase in sales. I've been amazed to see that over 20% of my customers are choosing PayPal's Express Checkout option to 'fast-track' the checkout process rather than pay by credit or debit card. PayPal appointed my company with our own account manager and it's reassuring to have a direct phone number and email address so that I can contact him whenever I have a query.”

Merchant Rate

You can apply for Merchant Rate pricing if you’ve processed more than £1,500 in total payments through PayPal in the previous calendar month and your account is in good standing (not currently under investigation). We will look at your total payments processed to determine your merchant rate on a monthly basis.

Maintaining your Merchant Rate
After qualifying for Merchant Rate pricing, you need to maintain a payment volume of more than £1,500 to remain eligible for Merchant Rates. In the event that a payment volume of more than £1,500 is not maintained in the previous calendar month, or if you have unresolved chargebacks, you will no longer be eligible for Merchant Rate pricing and Standard Rate pricing will apply. You don’t need to re-apply for Merchant Rate pricing if your payment volume drops below £1,500 in the previous calendar month. Merchant Rate will automatically apply again when you reach the qualifying payment volume.

If you’re interested in the Merchant Rate, log in to your PayPal account and apply via the online application form. In the event that your request is refused, please note that you may only submit an application once every 30 days.
