From handling credit card transactions, submitting multiple transactions in a single file to verifying multiple accounts quickly, PayPal is a trustworthy payment gateway. PayPal’s adaptive payment gateway integration brings plenty of possibilities, especially for multi-vendor websites. As an admin of a multi-vendor website, website owners find it difficult to track every sale and distribute money to different vendors. PayPal adaptive payment system is a perfect solution to make things easier for all such website owners. We integrated a similar PayPal adaptive system on our self-built site WordPress based website. The system was developed with a view to bridging the revenue split problems on the multi-vendor website. It reduces the unnecessary tedious task of sending payments separately via payment gateways and saves a lot of time.

How PayPal adaptive Payment System works?
The Adaptive Payment system integrated into the website handles payment between one sender and many receivers of payment. It follows parallel and delayed chained payment method.
Parallel Payment Method
In Parallel payment method whenever any customer makes a payment, it will split directly into pre-defined shares to be sent to various vendors and merchants. The admin or website owner is not required perform the tedious talk of splitting revenue. This is automatically done by the adaptive payment method. Here the payment split will directly reach the receivers end. PayPal supports sending payment to 6 receivers at a time. The sharing mechanism is absolutely secure and transparent, where the customers receive information about all the recipients in the chain.
Delayed Chain Payment Method
In delayed chain payment method the sender can choose to delay the payment to secondary receivers. After the payment is received by the primary recipient and he approves of it, the payment will be sent to the secondary receiver. This method is useful when vendors are required to ship the products before receiving the payments or waiting till the expiration of return period. In this method, payments to secondary recipients can be delayed up to 90 days.
