PayPal Minimum and Maximum Payments

Due to PayPal-imposed limits on the minimum and maximum of payments transacted through their system, read this quick-start guide to make sure your TeamSnap registration fees will fit your preferred online payment type: One-Time Payment or Installment Payments

$5 Minimum

PayPal requires at least $5 USD (or the equivalent in other currencies) per online payment it transacts.

Planning on setting up installment payments? Keep in mind, if your deposit or installment payments break out to less than $5 USD per payment (the PayPal minimum), the installment payment plan option will deactivate and will not be available to your registrants during registration.

$10,000 Maximum

PayPal’s installment payment plans are restricted to no more than $10,000 USD (or the equivalent in other currencies) in total fees per registration it transacts. This maximum is imposed on the total fee, not per payment. One-time payments are not affected by this $10,000 limit.

If a player’s registration fee (including fee adjustments and multiple registrants on a single form) adds up to more than $10,000 USD total, the installment payment plan option will deactivate and will not be available to your registrants.
