Please send me a screen print of what my network options should be. This is to set up like an Etsy account:
Here is what I received from Kim:
You will need to register your PayPal Account as a Merchant Account. Then you can visit the Network Admin Dashboard>Settings>Marketpress
On the General Settings please note that you cannot use Global Checkout with Chained Payments, so select no.
( Limit Global Widgets, Global Widgets/Shortcodes to main blog) IS THIS WHERE i CLICK no?
Scroll down to the PayPal Chained Payments Settings box Fill in your PayPal API credentials and pay special attention to the blue links in the following paragraph. You will need to create and register your chained payments application. I'll attach a pic of where you will find this info. The links will take you where you need to go :slight_smile: And unless you plan on having thousands of sites, then you don't need Multi DB :slight_smile: This is a management tool for those with very large networks.
Please tell me what to set on each of the following: Do you have a PDF or something that explains step by step?

Using PayPal Chained Payments allows you as the multisite network owner to collect a predefined fee or percentage of all sales on network MarketPress stores! This is invisible to the customers who purchase items in a store, and all PayPal fees will be charged to the store owner. To use this option you must create API credentials, and you should make all other gateways unavailable or limited above. Fees To Collect Enter a percentage of all store sales to collect as a fee. Decimals allowed.
PayPal Email Address Please enter your PayPal email address or business id you want to recieve fees at.
PayPal API Credentials You must login to PayPal and create an API signature to get your credentials. Instructions »
You must register this application with PayPal using your business account login to get an Application ID that will work with your API credentials. A bit of a hassle, but worth it! In the near future we will be looking for ways to simplify this process. Register then submit your application while logged in to the developer portal. Note that you do not need an Application ID for testing in sandbox mode. More Information »
