To help with your DistributorCentral account's payment setup, please review breakdown of the 3 PayPal account subscriptions compatible with DistributorCentral.
1. PayPal – Real-Time Merchant
This DistributorCentral payment method is used with the standard free PayPal account and uses PayPal's own payment gateway called Payflow Link. If you have this payment method setup in your DistributorCentral account your customers will be able to select PayPal as a payment type when ordering on your website. Once their order is submitted, your customer will be routed to a secure PayPal hosted payment page offsite to complete their payment transaction using any number of Credit / Debit / PayPal methods.
NOTE: This option is not applicable to the "PayOnline Now" link on invoices. Also once a payment is made you will need to check your PayPal account in order to see the payment.

2. Credit Card - PayPal Payflow Pro
The next level up from the standard free PayPal option (PayPal — Real-Time Merchant) is the PayPal Payflow Pro account. This account uses the same Payflow gateway as previously mentioned above, but with Payflow Pro, you can connect to your own merchant account. When customers place an order on your website, they never leave your website to submit payment, instead, they enter their payment details within your secure DistributorCentral website.
