    I’ve been testing Adaptive Payments in Sandbox mode, and the customer sees two separate entries on the Paypal billing view – one for the vendor, one for the merchant (and then the total sum). Is it possible to combine this, so only the total price is shown?


    I’d also be interested in the answer to this, as it’s the one thing putting me off enabling Adaptive Payments. I’m worried it might people off if they see they are making payments to two different entities. Currently I pay vendors manually every week (which is a tad laborious).



    This is the difference between parallel payments and chained payments from paypal.

    What you are seeing is what is currently supported by the plugin, native support for chained payments is on the to-do list but I have quite a few bugs I need to iron out before I dive into the paypal developer documents to add this feature.

    There is another thread (here) that outlines how to use chained payments with a modified payment gateway class file, but this is not upgrade safe and I haven’t tested this fully.

    You also need to realise that using chained payments you accept a lot more liability for the transaction. There are some great advantages to using chained payments such as delaying payment (where you can hold the cash until they have shipped) but this isn’t currently available in the plugin.

    Also please note to use chained payments you need to have your account enabled for this with paypal or this will fail.
