Accepted Payment Methods

At Own That Crown, buyers can either pay with their credit card or using their PayPal account.

Do buyers need a PayPal account?

If a buyer is paying with their credit card, creating a PayPal account is not necessary. You will simply use your credit card via Paypal quick checkout.

Do sellers need a PayPal account?

A PayPal account is required if you plan on selling something for money on Own That Crown.  Paypal might request you to upgrade your account to a business account; this just takes one click and is free to do.  Paypal business accounts provide seller protection, so transactions are safe and secure.  To finish setting up, you will have to grant permissions for Own That Crown to take out a 6% commission if you make a sale.  This is all automated on Paypal's end and it simply means that if a transaction occurs then you're allowing Paypal to take out 6% of the sale and deposit it to Own That Crown's Paypal account.

Can Users Issue Refunds?

If something goes wrong, users can cancel a transaction and trigger a refund.

How to issue a refund?

The seller can issue a full refund to the buyer from their PayPal account. The seller then needs to email to refund the transaction fee from that transaction.

Is the PayPal payment processing fee refunded?

PayPal will refund the percentage portion of their fees for both transactions, but not the fixed fees. This means that, for each refund, both Own That Crown and the seller will lose the fixed fee (which is $0.3 in the US).

Benefits from PayPal Protection

When users use PayPal, Own That Crown's payment system, they are eligible for PayPal buyer & seller protection in case something goes wrong. See PayPal Safety & Security for more information.
