Change All Client accounts to Pay via PayPal

Modified on Sun, 16 Oct 2022 at 10:59 PM


The only other online payment method available, if you do not wish to use Stripe (our recommended method of payment), is via PayPal. Pet Sitter Plus will also post automatic receipts for all payments taken via PayPal, although we have found that the time it takes PayPal to return confirmation of the receipt can vary, sometimes up to a few days.

If you want all your clients to be able to pay with PayPal then all your clients will need to have their Payment Processor set to PayPal.

Note:  If you have not yet set up your PayPal Payment Processor, you can learn how to do this in  Connecting PayPal and the Benefits of Using It.
