The Linktree linking platform has worked with PayPal to enable the global implementation of Linktree Commerce Links, the company said in a press release on Tuesday, August 24. The integration will allow creators to conduct frictionless transactions wherever PayPal operates. They will also be allowed to receive tips, donations and accept requests.
Commerce Links, rolled out earlier this year, is a new Linktree suite to help with the aforementioned payments. The suite of tools provides users with faster payment channels and new monetization opportunities, the press release said. Thanks to the integration with PayPal, customers will now be able to log into PayPal and get paid even more easily via PayPal or a debit or credit card. They will also be able to access more data on transactions, payment conversion rates and more to help customers manage their digital presence.
âAs the creator economy grows, creators want new ways to collect payments and support from their audiences with as little friction as possible,â said Alex Zaccaria, co-founder and CEO of Linktree. âWe are excited to be working with PayPal to further extend our solutions to our users around the world and enable them to further manage and monetize their digital presence. “
