Your first Selz Pay transfer

Our payment processor for Selz Pay needs to treat every seller’s first transfer differently from subsequent transfers. They wait seven days after your first successful charge before sending the first electronic transfer to your bank account. Delaying your first transfer for a few extra days allows them to address some of the risks that are inherent in providing credit services to our sellers.

PayPal FAQs

I’m located in a country where enabling cards is available. Can I use PayPal exclusively?

If you choose, your store can take PayPal as a payment option exclusively, even if you’re located in a country where Selz Pay and / or 2Checkout is an option.

What currencies can I process with PayPal?

My PayPal account is currently disabled and Selz Pay isn’t available in my country. What do I do?

If PayPal and Selz Pay aren’t available for you, you can use 2Checkout as long as 2Checkout supports your country.

If your PayPal account is restricted and you are not located within a country where Selz Pay or 2Checkout operates, we are not able to support your business on Selz at this time.

I can only use PayPal, but I want to offer credit cards for my customers without PayPal accounts. What are my options?

If you are in a PayPal-only country and have customers that either do not have PayPal accounts or PayPal is not a widely accepted mode of payment, you can enable Checkout as Guest on your PayPal account. Once Checkout as Guest is enabled on your PayPal account, your customers will be able to Checkout as Guest on your Selz store and pay with their credit card.
