Adaptive payments handle payments between a sender of a payment and one or more receivers of the payment. If you are an owner of an Elgg social community site, by using this plugin you can receive commission from commercial activities of members of the community.

  • Current plugin version: 2.3.1
  • Elgg version compatible: 2.3.x

The Elgg site owner must have a PayPal Business account. Senders and receivers can have any PayPal account type. Senders are not required to have PayPal accounts initially. PayPal prompts a sender to create an account before a payment can be completed. A receiver must have an account to receive the funds.

This plugin offers the API for receiving simple and/or adaptive payments. You have to use another plugin such as Agora Classifieds, so when community members sell products or digital goods or services, the site owner can receive a commission.

You can get more information about Adaptive Payments at PayPal official documentation.
