    What is Paypals minimum payment?

    Hello,

    What is Paypals' payment minimum?
    This means what is the lowest price I as a merchant can be paid?

    I did a test and I was able to send my wife $0.01 from my paypal account.
    Would this be the same for credit card payments as well?

    Thanks,

    They have micro-payments for some users (lower transaction / higher discount rate) but there will still be a transaction cost involved.

    If you are not using their development center, I would say use about $.50. This is what we usually use when we have to test on some gateways that do not offer a free test store in the beginning.

    you can also easily refund the payments from their interface. When you refund a payment, they refund the fee that they charged you, which is nice.

    Thanks for the replies.

    It would have been nice if Paypal would make this easy to find.

    I don't think it's in their business plan for people to be sending pennies back and forth to each other.

    If you transfer one cent the transaction costs will be higher than that. I think the minimum you can send without the transaction costs beeing more expensive is around 40 Cents.
