Paypal for Fan and RR Payments

This article teaches you how to create a PayPal Business account, attach that account for fan payments, and a separate place to receive payments from RR.

Create A PayPal Business Account

In order to receive any payments from your fans through our system, you have to connect your PayPal business account. We do NOT allow personal PayPal accounts because they limit payments with a credit or debit card.

Using PayPal allows the fans to process a payment that goes straight into your PayPal account. Rhythmic Rebellion does not handle your money in any way or take any fees. PayPal does however retain a fee for each transaction.

  • Business Account - Recommended for merchants who operate under a company/group name. It offers additional features such as allowing up to 200 employees limited access to your account and customer service email alias for customer issues to be routed for faster follow-ups. Money sent to a business PayPal account can be held directly as balance in the business PayPal account. The business account offers much more, such as receiving payments directly from your website and accepting debit and credit cards.
