At this time, Bonanza requires all sellers to connect an active PayPal account to their Bonanza booth. You can set up PayPal as an option for receiving payments from buyers in your booth settings. Point your mouse over the "Selling" link in the upper left-hand corner of any page, then select "Booth settings" from the drop down. Click on the "Payments & purchases" tab, then click the blue "Connect account" button to log into your PayPal account and connect with your Bonanza booth for receiving payments. Buyers will then be able to submit payments directly to your PayPal account when completing checkout. This includes standard PayPal payments, as well as PayPal Credit payments.
Note: PayPal requires a Personal or Business account for your payments to be disbursed to your account. Bonanza does not store your PayPal password and does not have access to your private PayPal account.
Currently, PayPal does not support sellers in Israel (IL) or Japan (JP). Since PayPal is required for all Bonanza sellers, Bonanza is unable to support sellers located in IL or JP that do not have an active PayPal account registered in another country.
PayPal Business Accounts
If you have a PayPal Business account, also known as PayPal Commerce Platform, you can offer your shoppers more ways to pay. In addition to standard PayPal payments and PayPal Credit payments, sellers with a PayPal Business account which meets the criteria for Advanced Payments can also accept unbranded credit card payments. This allows buyers without a PayPal account to easily purchase items from your booth using their credit or debit card. Note that Bonanza is unable to provide confirmation of whether your account qualifies for Advanced Payments. If you have questions about your PayPal Business account status, we recommend contacting PayPal directly.
If you already have a PayPal Business account but it is not connected to your Bonanza booth, you can reauthorize your PayPal account from the "Selling > Booth Settings > Payments & purchases" page.
If you don't have a PayPal Business account, you can upgrade your personal PayPal account here.

Once your PayPal Business account is connected, you will see "Business with Advanced Payments" under the connected PayPal email.
Buyers will then be able to select the "Pay with Card" option during checkout and use their credit or debit card to send money to your PayPal account.
