PayPal Account Types

Personal PayPal Account

You may process payments on Ticket River using your Personal Paypal account. Ticket buyers can purchase with a credit card or using their existing PayPal account. However, PayPal will automatically create a PayPal account for ticket buyers who do not already have one. For a more seamless experience for buyers, you may upgrade your account to PayPal Payments Standard. It’s free and only takes a few minutes to upgrade.


PayPal Payments Standard Account

To ensure ticket buyers can purchase tickets without having to create a PayPal account, you can upgrade to a PayPal Payments Pro account. You will be asked for more information by PayPal to upgrade your account but there is no additional fee and the process typically takes less than 30 minutes.

PayPal Payments Pro Account

The PayPal Payments Pro account is designed for enterprise customers that anticipate high sales volume. While the experience for ticket buyers will be exactly the same as with an standard account, you pay a smaller per transaction fee (varies based on volume). PayPal charges a monthly fee of $30.
