    Parallel Adaptive Payment Type

    In the parallel payment, the payment is sent to multiple receivers at a time.

    When Payment Type is selected as “Parallel”, then the admin can select “Who Will Pay Fee” as Sender or Each Receiver.

    When “Sender” is selected then the customer pays the fee which is deducted by the Payment Gateway method and when “Each Receiver” is selected then each receiver of the payment will pay the fee deducted by the Payment Gateway method.

    Chained Adaptive Payment type

    In a chained payment, the payment is made to a primary receiver. The primary receiver keeps some of the payment and pays the rest to one or more secondary receivers. Admin can select either Instant or Delayed payment type.

    When the Payment Type is “Chained”, then the admin can select “Who Will Pay Fee”, as Primary Receiver or Each Reciever.

    In “Primary Reciever”, the fee charged by the Payment Gateway method will be deducted from the Admin or Primary Reciever and in “Each Receiver”, the fee charged by the Payment Gateway will be deducted by each receiver  ( admin and sellers).

    The workflow of the module

    On the cart page, the customer can see the total amount like the image below.

    On the checkout page, the customer will see “Webkul Marketplace PayPal Adaptive Payment” and a message notifying the customer that they would be redirected to the PayPal official website to make the payment.

    After placing an order through Webkul Marketplace PayPal Adaptive Payment, the customer will redirect to Paypal site where they will enter all PayPal details and after the successful payment transaction, they will redirect back to the store.

    For the Parallel Adaptive Payment Type, the user can see the payment is split between the vendor and the admin.
