How to Link Payhip to PayPal Account

Connect PayPal account to Payhip

You can link Payhip to PayPal account by following a set of instructions as shared below. Linking your accounts means an instant transaction between the seller and buyer without worrying about errors, for example, PayPal is unable to process your payment at this time, PayPal can’t accept money, or the recipient cannot receive payments.

For all Payhip users who are currently using the old linking method which required typing and saving PayPal email in Payhip dashboard which didn’t require automatic PayPal account authorization, you are required to connect your accounts by using the new account linking feature which is available within the account dashboard before the former ceases to work.

In order to link Payhip to a PayPal account, you have to locate the settings within the account dashboard. Navigating the account menus and selecting Payment details once you are logged in will allow you to get started with the new account linking feature where you can find both PayPal and Stripe.

Connecting Payhip to Stripe account

Whether you already have a Stripe account or not, you can connect your Payhip with Stripe by following the same settings but this time selecting Stipe.
