Criteria for receiving Merchant Rates
for the PayPal Shopping Cart.
PayPal's Merchant Rate.
This pricing structure is available for members whose accounts are in good standing and
who meet the following conditions:
They have been a PayPal member for at least 90 days, and
Received either $3,000 USD or £1,500 GBP in PayPal payments during the last calendar

provided on their Merchant Rate application)
Maintaining your Merchant Rate
After qualifying for Merchant Rate pricing, you must maintain at least $3,000.00 USD
or £1,500 GBP in payments per month with PayPal.
Members may be downgraded to the Standard Rate if their monthly PayPal volume drops below
$3,000.00 USD or £1,500 GBP for three consecutive months.
Keep their PayPal account in good standing. Members may be downgraded if they have limited
account access or they have unresolved chargebacks.
Members interested in receiving the Merchant Rate should apply login to their PayPal and
apply there. To reduce processing load, members may apply only once every 30 days.
