Credit a Customer / Sub-Reseller with the Net Amount in an Add Funds transaction.: Your Bank and PayPal Payflow Pro deducts a fee on a per transaction basis. There are two types of transactions that can pass through your PayPal Payflow Pro integration: Invoice/Debit Note Payment and Add Funds.Additional Information
In case of an Add Funds transaction, you have the option of crediting your Customers/Sub-Resellers with the Net amount that PayPal Payflow Pro credits you with, or choose to credit them with the Gross funds and bear the charges yourselves. The net amount is calculated by subtracting the per transaction charges from the transaction amount. The per transaction charges are calculated by adding the Total Fixed fee charged per transaction and the Total Variable fee charged per transaction.
Total Fixed fee charged per transaction for your merchant account (Per Transaction Fixed Fee charged by your Bank + Per Transaction Fixed Fee charged by the PayPal Payflow Pro Credit Card Gateway): Enter the total fixed fee that is charged per transaction in the given textbox. This information is primarily used to calculate the Net amount that your merchant account is credited with, if you choose to credit your Customer/Sub-Reseller with the Net amount in an Add funds Transaction. If Your Bank and/or your Gateway is charging you a different amount of fixed fee per transaction for different credit card types, then enter the highest amount of fixed fees charged per transaction to your account. For example, if your Payment Gateway charges you a fixed fee of 25 cents per transaction for Visa Cards, while 30 cents per transaction for American Express Cards, then enter 0.30 in the textbox. If there is no fixed fee charged per transaction, then enter 0.
Total Variable fee charged per transaction for your merchant account: Enter the variable fee percentage that is charged per transaction in the given textbox. This information is primarily used to calculate the Net amount that your merchant account is credited with, if you choose to credit your Customer / Sub-reseller with the Net amount in an Add Funds transaction. If Your Bank and/or your Gateway is charging you a different variable fee percentage per transaction for different credit card types, then enter the highest percentage of variable fees charged per transaction to your account. For example, if your Payment Gateway charges you a variable fee of 2.50% per transaction for Visa Cards, while 3.00% per transaction for American Express Cards, then enter 3.00 in the textbox. If there is no fixed fee charged per transaction, then enter 0.Note
If you have selected to credit a Customer/Sub-Reseller with the Net amount in an Add Funds transaction, then you must submit either a Fixed Transaction fee (greater than 0) or a Variable Transaction fee (greater than 0).
