direct paypal payments

Direct payments in DJ-Classifieds allow users to pay for goods directly using PayPal.

This way a user that sells something via DJ-Classifieds can provide his Paypal address and the buyer can pay directly to seller for the product. This works between both users (seller and buyer) and DJ-Classifieds is just a platform for the payment, it's not holding or mediating the purchase - the whole payment is done between users.

How it works

First you need to enable this feature in DJ-Classifieds options in Global tab

Enable direc payments feature

Now you need to create the custom field responsible for Paypal payment email address

create custom paypal email field for DJ-Classifieds profile

Important: Make sure that the field's name is paypal_email - it's needed to make it work properly!

Important: Make sure that you publish the field in "User Profile", not "category"!

From now on users in their profiles can add the Paypal email to accept payments (learn more about DJ-Classifieds profile fields)

When buyer clicks the Buy Now button in the advert:

DJ-classifieds buy now feature button

he'll next see the view with the confirmation of the purchase

Buy now confirmation

Once the Buy Now button is clicked again the user is introduced with the option to make a direct Paypal payment to the seller:

DJ-Classifieds direct payments with Paypal

Clicking the "Buy now" button connects to Paypal where the payment can be made:

Pay with paypal for dj-classifieds items

Once the payment is processed successfully both parts of the transaction receive email confirming the purchase.

Seller and buyer can see their orders/purchases in their account.
Seller in his adverts can see this link under each product he sells. Click on that reveals the Purchases history

Purchase history

Alternatively there's a new view for this that you can add to any menu item (Sales history)

Buyer can also have new view with orders:
