PayPal is a popular credit card processing service. It is an all inclusive solution; therefore, it does not require a separate merchant account. Paypal offers three types of accounts; Personal, Premier, and Business. As per your coaching hub, aMember requires either the Premier or Business account.

Most of the aMember pricing flexibility (trial periods and recurring plans) and coupon usability is tied to the choice of payment processor. PayPal supports a high level of pricing/coupon flexibility since all products are built "on the fly" by the aMember software.

Your site will have preloaded the paypal and paypal express plugin linked with your paypal email address you provided your account manager with.

You should have already configured your paypal with your coaching hub but if not follow these instructions.

Request from your account manager your site's Instant Payment Notification URL. You will need this URL when configuring your PayPal account.

PayPal Setup / Configurations

To configure your PayPal account to work with aMember, follow these steps:

Log into your Premier or Business PayPal account and click on the "My Account" tab.

Hover over the "Profile" menu link.

Click on the "Add or Edit Email" link.

Click on the "Save" button.

Click Profile.

From the Selling Preferences column, click Website Payment Preferences.
