Set Up PayPal for Classic Team Payments

TeamSnap’s Classic Payments tab allows you track fees owed by your players and have payments made right from the site through PayPal. Only the team owner may set up a PayPal account to receive online payments. The associated processing fees are always charged to the owner. If you wish to pass these fees on to your players, we suggest increasing the amount of each team fee item to cover the charges. 

Note: Classic Payments will be eventually be phased out in favor of the new Payments feature. Learn more: Set Up WePay for Team Payments. If you have not used Classic Payments in the past it will not be an available option for set up.

Once you have set up your PayPal account connection, players will have the option to pay online with PayPal, either with their PayPal account or by credit card without having a PayPal account.

All payments processed online will incur approximately a 5% processing charge which will be charged to the team owner and deducted from the amount paid. The charge includes the standard PayPal processing fees of approximately 2.9% + 30¢ (your fees may be slightly different depending on your arrangement with PayPal), plus a 2% fee for TeamSnap.

If you wish to pass the processing fees on to your team, you will need to increase the fee amount by approximately 5% in order to account for the approximately 5% taken out for the PayPal & TeamSnap processing fees. For example, if you enter a team fee of $100 for new uniforms and would like to pass the associated fees on to your team, you should increase the fee by $5.00 ($100 x 5% = $5.00) and enter a total fee amount of $105.00
