Take Payments with PayPal [Premium Feature]

With Setmore Premium and an active PayPal Business account, you can take online payments from your customers directly through your Setmore calendar. This integration also has the added benefit of letting your customers pay using their PayPal account, if they want, or they can simply check out as a guest using a debit or credit card. Additional features are available with this integration, such as the ability to take payments through your Booking Page (see Related Articles at the bottom of the page).  

Note that PayPal charges a small percentage fee for each successful transaction.  Click here to learn more.
