How does PayPal work?

Our tip: We provide the PayPal payment method as a part of our payment gateway which means you can’t use PayPal to top up your GoPay account.

There are some differences from other payment methods when you use PayPal with GoPay:

  1. You need to create a PayPal account
  2. Your payments are credited directly to your PayPal account. Your GoPay account doesn’t receive such payments.
  3. The entity which defines fees for accepting PayPal payments is PayPal, not us, which means we don’t have any control over the fees.

The GoPay payment gateway provides a technical connection of PayPal. We don’t hold your money received with PayPal. Your money is credited to your PayPal account. In other words you don’t have to integrate PayPal to your e-shop, you just need a direct contract with PayPal.

Our tip: GoPay only provides a technical and customer support and payment records. Sending your payments to your PayPal account and other activities isn’t dependent on GoPay.
