You're all set!
It's one thing to know how to add a user to PayPal, but that is worthless if you don't know when you should do it. Let's break down the relevance of this question based on two high level categories. We'll walk through an explanation as well as provide a score, 1-10, that shows you how relevant this question is whether you do or don’t have a product.
The first scenario we will walk through will be if you do not have a product yet. Whether it is a website or a mobile app, you are still in the ideation or planning phase and have not yet built anything. Maybe you have started development but just aren’t finished with your first version. Whichever it is, we'll get into why this question is or isn’t relevant and why you should or shouldn't care about it if you do not have a product.
This should only matter if you are using PayPal to pay out your contractors or pay your invoices. If this is the case and someone else is managing your finances, then you're going to want to know how to add them to your team.
Live Product: 3/10
The second category is if you do have a live product. Maybe you just launched your business or maybe it's been live for years and you're continuing to improve its quality and release new features. Regardless of the scenario, if your product is live, this question carries a different weight of relevance.
Same thing as if you didn't have a product yet, this should only matter if you are using PayPal to pay out your contractors or pay your invoices. If this is the case and someone else is managing your finances, then you're going to want to know how to add them to your team.
It's your lucky day, all you need is PayPal!
- PayPal is one of the most popular payment processing companies out there.
- If you do or don't have a product, you may need PayPal and others to access your account, depending on your situation.
