Order Payment Methods

Understanding order payments

Payments for orders are handled automatically from a third party market place, or can be entered manually for phone, email, or wholesale orders. Amazon orders come into the system marked as paid since Amazon handles the payment from the customer completely, whereas eBay orders are handled by Paypal or other processors. It is possible for eBay orders to initially download as Unpaid, and have payment applied at a later date. Sellercloud verifies that eBay orders are paid by matching the eBay orders with the corresponding Paypal (or other processors) transaction ID. As a side note: Unpaid eBay orders will download without the Ship To address. This is because Sellercloud uses the finalized address from the payment record, rather than what is supplied by eBay. When the payment record is pulled in the Ship To address will update.
