Wednesday 25 August 2021 11:25 CET | News

Linktree, a Canada-based connectivity platform, has partnered with with PayPal to deliver its users a way to accept direct payments in any country where Paypal operates.


Launched in March 2021, commerce links allow users to take payments directly on their Linktree profile without opening a new browser or tab. The new integration lets Linktree customers connect their PayPal account and receive payments from their followers or customers via PayPal, a debit card or a credit card. Linktree notes users can also access information regarding their transactions, payment conversion rate and more. The company says the available relevant data is meant to help creators manage their digital presence.

There are two types of commerce links that creators can use to take payments from their followers and customers: A ‘Support Me Link’ allows Linktree users to collect payments and donations from their visitors, while ‘Request Links’ lets customers and followers request goods and services from creators directly from their Linktree profile.

Linktree says its collaboration with PayPal is the latest in a series of creator-focused efforts. The partnership announcement comes days after Linktree announced its acquisition of automated music link aggregation platform Songlink/Odesli.
