You can collect payments from officials through PayPal by generating invoices with a negative balance and supplying the PayPal email address that is connected to the account that will receive the money.
After creating a negative balance invoice for one or more of your officials...perhaps for dues, banquets, equipment purchase, etc. usually using the "Custom Invoice Item" feature, you simply edit the batch properties to supply an email address associated with the PayPal account that will recieve the money.
Officials can pay with an eCheck, their paypal balance, or a credit card.The official doesn't even need a PayPal account if the recipeint's account is a PayPal verified account
RefTown provides this feature for no additional cost. However, PayPal will charge transaction fees for all such transactions. You can designate whether their fees will be added onto the invoice amount paid by the sender (official) or deducted from the amount received by the designated account.
Guest checkout for PayPal allows your officials to pay via PayPal without signing in to a PayPal account. Guest payments are available for Business or Premier PayPal accounts.
