About PayPal


PayPal is an online payment system that shops can use to process customer credit card payments. While shoppers will pay for their orders from their account page or your mobile app, payments run through PayPal—CommentSold does not hold any of these funds.

You'll need to create a PayPal business account before you can connect it to CommentSold. Create your PayPal business account here.

PayPal is one of several payment gateways you can connect to CommentSold. Learn about other available payment gateways here.
