Connecting ScheduleOnce to PayPal

The ScheduleOnce connector for PayPal allows you to collect payments and issue refunds as an integral part of your booking process. This allows you to automatically refund customers when they are canceling, or charge them a reschedule fee when they are rescheduling. You only need to connect your PayPal account, configure your Payment settings, and ScheduleOnce takes care of all payment activities in an automated and secure manner. Connecting ScheduleOnce to your PayPal account is a three-step process: Accepting Terms, Granting permissions to ScheduleOnce and Allowing automatic billing.

Note: You can reduce administrative overhead and align invoices with your branding requirements by customizing the invoice sent to Customers when payment is collected or refunds are processed via ScheduleOnce. Learn more about customizing the Invoice settings

  6. After connecting to your PayPal account and granting permissions to ScheduleOnce, you are automatically redirected to your ScheduleOnce account to allow automatic billing. (See Figure 4)

    Automatic billing authorizes ScheduleOnce to charge a 1% transaction fee for each payment made via ScheduleOnce, in addition to the fees charged by PayPal. Learn more about ScheduleOnce Terms of use.

    Note: To connect ScheduleOnce to your PayPal, you must use the same PayPal account when granting permissions to ScheduleOnce and when allowing automatic billing.
