    I am using WC Vendors free with the Paypal Adaptive Payments Gateway. I have my live payments working correctly for all intents and purposes. But I have one issue… I would like the Paypal fees to be charged to the vendors and not myself, since they will be receiving the bulk of profit of all sales (I am taking 10% commision, they get 90%). Right now, the payments are split correctly but I am being charged the fee. So for instance, since Paypal charges a minimum of $0.30 for all transactions… If a vendor sells a product for $2 plus tax I’m getting $0.19 and Paypal is taking $0.19. So essentially I’m making nothing off of that sale. Meanwhile, the vendor is getting $1.90 and charged nothing by Paypal. I have already contacted Paypal and they said that I set up everything correctly with them (my application settings are correct) but that the plugin is making the API call incorrectly. So my question is how can I get the API call corrected so the vendor is charged and not me? I found this bit of code in the gateway files but this seems to be more geared towards chained payments and not parallel payments.

    $payRequest->feesPayer = ‘EACHRECEIVER’;

    $args = array(
    ‘wc-api’ => ‘WC_PayPalAP’,
    ‘paypal_chain_ipn’ => ‘1’,
    ‘order_id’ => $order_id,


    the only way this would be able to be altered would be if you were using paypal chained payments- which we do not support.
    PayPal Adaptive is configured properly in our plugin for use with parallel payments.
