The ScheduleOnce connector for PayPal allows you to collect payments as an integral part of your booking process. You only need to connect your PayPal account, configure payment settings, and ScheduleOnce takes care of all payment activities in an automated and secure manner.
NoteWhen your PayPal account is connected to ScheduleOnce, Customers can pay with their credit/debit card or with their PayPal account. A PayPal account on the Customer end is not required.
The ability to offer two payment methods - Traditional cards and PayPal - increases sales and improves Customer satisfaction.
When you are connected to PayPal, you can define a cancel/reschedule policy for your Event types and set the fees and refund rates for canceling or rescheduling a single session, or multiple sessions within a package. This allows you to automatically refund customers when they cancel, or charge them a reschedule fee when they reschedule.
Connecting to PayPal
Before you can begin accepting payments for your Event types, you must connect ScheduleOnce to your PayPal account.
- Then you must connect to PayPal. This will grant permissions to ScheduleOnce to run specific transactions via the PayPal API. The integration allows you to charge Customers for bookings, issue refunds via ScheduleOnce, and capture transactions in ScheduleOnce invoicing and Revenue reports.
- Then you must allow automatic billing. This will allow ScheduleOnce to charge the 1% transaction fee for payments made via ScheduleOnce.
Customizing payment settings
Using Payment integration
In the Event type -> Payment and cancel/reschedule policy section, you can define the Event type price, the Customer Cancellation policy, and the Customer Reschedule policy when accepting payments via ScheduleOnce. For example, you can choose to charge 10% of the Event type price when Customers reschedule a booking or automatically issue a refund of 100 USD when Customers cancel the booking a week before the meeting time.
