You can use PayPal Sandbox accounts and a demo application ID for testing purposes. When going live, you'll need to complete a PayPal application process as described in Going Live with Adaptive.
Once installed and enabled, PayPal Adaptive for MultiMerch replaces the standard process of making payments through seller balances and performing payouts to sellers manually. The payments to all parties happen on checkout through PayPal.
With Parallel payments, the buyer performs one payment that is instantly split between the sellers and the store owner. If configured for Chained payments, the buyer performs a single payment to the store owner’s PayPal account, which is then split between the sellers automatically.
Is PayPal Adaptive supported in my country?
